1974

The Commentary Commentary you are about to read is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of five youths. Okay, not really, but there’s certainly a fair amount of slashing and running and screaming in the woods. This week we’re covering The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and everything director Tobe Hooper had to say about the production along with director of photography Daniel Pearl and Leatherface himself, Gunnar Hansen. We chose The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, because Total Recall last week left us for something a little more happy-go-lucky, something that isn’t riddled with copious amounts of blood and body parts being ripped off. Shockingly, there’s a ton more of that stuff in the Arnold movie than here, but it’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre that makes you want to cleanse yourself after. The movie, for the lack of shown blood it has, does have a way of making you feel dirty after watching. So grab your popcorn, because this one’s for the whole family. Cue John Larroquette‘s opening narration in 3…2…

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. Ever wonder where George Lucas stole the idea for Darth Vader’s helmet? Right here, my friend. This trailer is so damned cool – from the larger-than-life rock ‘n’ roll to the psychedelic visuals that make it tough to tell drug real from real real. Brian De Palma tells the tale of a disfigured musician in love with a beautiful singer and the price he pays for that love. Plus, the Darth Vader thing. Think you know what it is? Check the trailer out for yourself:

Every day, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. There’s no doubt that today’s post title echoes the best line uttered by Angel Tompkins in the entire movie. This flick has everything hilariously backward. From 1974, it tries to be subversive by featuring a teacher seducing a student, but the student is out of high school, already 18, and the teacher is only 28. A little bit wrong, sure. But shocking? Not really. Fortunately, this gem is one step up from porn-level plot writing, and the trailer should make the day of every cougar out there and the entire New Zealand police force. Now here’s a movie that demands a remake…. Think you know what it is? Check the trailer out for yourself:

Everyday, come rain or shine or internet tubes breaking, Film School Rejects showcases a trailer from the past. Today’s trailer delivers hooks us on the classic tale of science reaching far past its limits and the neighbors with pitchforks and torches that result. Fortunately, in this 1974 comedy classic, the result of creating an undead monster is a little top hat and cane musical number. Think you know what it is? Check out the trailer after the jump.

Red Riding is a trilogy of films from the UK about a series of serial killings that terrorized Northern England from the late sixties on into the eighties. Like Bong Joon-ho’s Memories of Murder and David Fincher’s Zodiac, Red Riding is just as (if not more) interested in the dark machinations of the men surrounding the case as it is the mystery itself.
