Local Boogeyman knows there’s road kill all over Texas. You see, over here the saw is family, and just counting skulls, I’d say we’re looking at 40 to 50 bodies… Jesus. This is fucked.
Local Boogeyman led officers of the Muerto County Sheriff’s Department to a cemetery just outside the small rural Texas community of Newt early this morning. Officers there discovered what appeared to be a grisly work of art from Tim Armstrong: a t-shirt of one of the most bizarre crimes in the annals of American history, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
“America’s most bizarre crime! Brutal beyond description! Grisly beyond comprehension!”
Having bought the rights to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre slasher franchise from The Cannon Group, New Line Cinema, “the house that Freddy built”, began production on a new sequel with the intention of “going back to hard-core horror”. Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III attempts to bring back the franchise to its unhinged roots, where the saw is family and dire situations lead to viscera. If only scriptwriter David J. Schow and director Jeff Burr’s vision had remained intact. “Some tales are told, then soon forgotten… but a legend is forever!”
“The saw is family.”

The buzz is back with Fright-Rags’ The Texas Chainsaw Massacre collection. While Fright-Rags have previously released various apparel dedicated to the 1974 genre-defining classic, this time around they’re showing love to some of the franchise’s sequels.
“Some tales are told, then soon forgotten. But a legend… is forever.”
Terror Threads kicks off ‘Women in Horror Month’ by celebrating the Soska Sisters’ debut film, Dead Hooker in a Trunk, and Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
“You know, in a really fucked up way, this is probably the most fun I have ever had.”
Terror Threads has made an impact with their official merchandise for horror genre favorites; both cult classic and modern macabre; continuing their impressive run with new The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Houses October Built collections.
“In the search for the most extreme haunt, the haunt found them.”
Grimmfest, screening the best in fantastic film, took place at Vue Printworks, Manchester, UK between 5th-8th October 2017. Overall this was a brilliant event where I enjoyed all but one film and even that was only a short, so it wasn’t too bad.
“Grimm up North.”
Tobe Hooper was one of the most influential horror directors of all time. His vision and intelligence can be seen in almost every slasher and splatter film over the last forty years and The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is Hooper’s masterpiece.
Originally conceived as a faux film “based on true events”, Hooper did draw inspiration from the story of Ed Gein, a murderer, grave robber who had a predilection for a number of other unsavory character traits.
“What happened is true. Now the motion picture that’s just as real. Once you stop screaming, then you’ll start talking about it.”
Fright-Rags are tapping into that collective nostalgia with the first in a planned series of box sets paying homage to VHS; launching with one film that defined the home video era: Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Fright-Rags are also proud to present the Alfred Hitchcock collection of four new t-shirts.
