|Alexandra Daddario awakening to find Leatherface sawing off the limb of her entourage's thieving hunky hitchiker in Texas Chainsaw|
It is getting to that perfect time of year, particularly down here in Mississippi when it is sweltering in the month of June, as the summer has about to demand its close-up, where the Texas Chainsaw movies seem to fit appropriately in the viewing schedule. Like peanut butter and jelly, especially Tobe Hooper's film, Texas Chainsaw seems to have that same cohesive relationship with the summer. Some films are considered fit for October, but I think the Texas Chainsaw films (preferably the first three) are more symbiotic to the heat of the summer. I know when I watch Hooper's first film, it seems to belong in the summer. I think I will pull out the two Hooper films in my dvd collection (those collectors additions), and watch the third Jeff Burr-directed Leatherface as well. Maybe even Texas Chainsaw from 2013. While the remake and remake's prequel aren't all that enticing to me (I just don't know if I can stomach the fourth film, following Leatherface III), I may wind up renting them as well.
