Here I am. I made it through the second batch of films despite the distractions. This is usually the toughest part of #ScaryMovieADayMonth. It’s when my attention span is broken into little pieces, causing things like Fall TV show season premieres, NFL football and bae to finagle their way into my “free time” schedule. I thought this would be a cake walk but my God, where does the time go? It doesn’t help that I take 2 hours to watch a 90 minute movie. My mind wanders and I find myself rewinding like a maniac. Meanwhile, the DVR is about to burst and my iPod is dick & butt with podcasts that become irrelevant as the weeks blow by. If you’re not sure what “dick & butt” means….. think about all the times you’ve been in the pit at a rock show or a crowded elevator. How close your genitals came to brushing up against a pair of butt cheeks. Yeah. I just hope, fellas, there was always a lady behind and in front of you.
Anyhow, here are days 11-20 in short and sweet form to make it easy on the both of us. Giddy up!
Day 11: Curse of Chucky (2013)
“You have your mother’s eyes………and they were always too FUCKING CLOSE TOGETHER!” *stabs eyeball*
Seed of Chucky was hilarious but I wanted the old Chucky back. The ferocious “Good Guy”. The one who made jokes and puns right before and AFTER killing people, as opposed to joking around every chance he got. And I got that with this movie. Also, I can never get tired of seeing Chucky’s little feet walking to his next victim. That little motherfucker is over-the-top with the killings too.
Loved it, it was fun to watch and whaddya know? This was a direct-to-video release, the first in the Chucky series, and it was better than the last one. We live in a different time. We can no longer treat these movies like they’re less important than theatrical releases especially when they’re this entertaining and have great surprises how Curse of Chucky had at the end.
Day 12: Candyman (1992)
“Have you heard of Candyman? I’ve heard of him, have you?” “I’ve heard of some guy called the Candyman, have you heard of him?” “Have you heard of…”
SHUT THE FUCK UP! Goddammit, was everything in the 90’s as dumb as these bitches asking the same question over and over? Because that’s not how I remember it. This movie is almost TOO 90’s. Rusty sinks, empty lots, graffiti everywhere… Don’t get me wrong, the movie isn’t bad….but I can’t lie and say that I wasn’t bored the whole time. Maybe the story is just old to me. I can’t blame the movie because I’m the one who’s late. I’ve been joking around about saying “Candyman” five times in front of my bathroom mirror, in the dark, since the 2nd grade. I guess it would be scary as shit if I heard the black man’s voice after saying it five times. His deep voice was hella dope though. He could use it to serenade the hoes but instead, he murders the hoes. Maybe his deep voice has something to do with having bees in his fucking mouth!
Look at the look of struggle splattered on his face. That’s what sacrifice looks like. If i were to look up the word “struggle” right now, I’d probably….yup, found it.
Only watch this for nostalgic purposes. If you’ve never watched it, don’t. Fuggedaboutit!
And now, here’s the series I alluded to in the last post. Here’s the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise!
Day 13: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
Do I even need to talk about this one? This is a certified clizznayee. A CLASSIC! Go on imdb.com and read the ‘Trivia’ section for this movie. BRUH.
If The Exorcist didn’t exist, this would be the scariest movie of all-time.
Day 14: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986)
So, the reason I chose to watch this franchise is because I had watched the original a bajillion times, and I watched the 2003 remake when it came out on Pay-Per-View. One day, I was listening to a horror movie podcast when I heard that The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 much more violent than the 1st one and possibly every other sequel. I had to see it for myself so I figured why not just watch em all in a row? Violent it was. It also had humor in it which took away from the terror that is Leatherface. Why the fuck was Dennis Hopper using a chainsaw more than Leatherface himself though? Before I go any further, I’ll just say that it doesn’t get better than this one for this franchise when it comes to sequels. It wasn’t great, but it’s far more entertaining than the rest of them. The protagonist is pretty fucking attractive so it’s easy to watch. Caroline Williams was a looker back in her day.
Day 15: Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990)
Kenan & Kel’s dad? Wtf are YOU doing here? … The only man to take the chainsaw revving skinner head-on. The black man. Respect. But the respect ends there cuz this movie was a feces sandwich with cheese. Leatherface looks corny. It’s easy to read about movies and like them based on the directors explanation of the direction they took. But I saw this dung salad with my own eyes and there’s no convincing me that it was worth anything when Leatherface wasn’t on my screen, which was too often for a movie titled, “Leatherface”. In this case, it doesn’t even make sense. I read that this was a reboot and a sequel at the same time. HOW SWAY?! Leatherface has a knee brace on in this movie implying that it’s a sequel since he accidentally sawed his leg in the 1st movie so that’s what the fuck it is to me. Reboot? What the fuck is you talkin’ about, b? Fuck outta here with that bullshit. It’s a sequel and it’s terrible.
Day 16: Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1995)
Shelved for 3 years, this one actually came out in ’97. This movie has some similarities to the original so it’s already better than the last one. This one, however, is more annoying. Let me get the positive out the way before I go in. Renée Zellweger shows these other bitches how it’s done in this movie. When you see a motherfucker with a chainsaw coming at you, you do what my Zell-wigga Renée did. RUN. LIKE. USAIN. BOLT. This girl was hauling ass and she had a dress on. If she tripped, which I can’t recall, she probably got right back up because she was OUT! No “deer in the headlights” bullshit. Get the fuck outta there immediately. Good for her.
Now, the negatives.
“The Next Generation”. Nobody gives a fuck about this new Sawyer family. We want to see Leatherface killing. He barely did anything here. FUCK Matthew McConaughey and his whistling S’s. Fuck him right to hell. Taking up all the screen time, fuck is wrong with him? Was there any dialogue in this bullshit? I swear all I heard was annoying screams the whole time. Oh, right. There was dialogue. I heard some heffer say “mucho quicko”. “Mucho quicko”??? What in the blue hell is that? Bitch?! Don’t even think about spanish. That’s unacceptable even to a fucking mute. Mucho quicko. You need mucho dicko in your mouth to keep shit like that from coming outta there, dumb bitch. WHY?! Who allowed this gah-bidge? All they did was take from the 1st movie, dipped it in a tub of Bling Bling the bum’s sweet and sour looking excrement and sautéed it.
Day 17: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)
*Sigh* What a breath of fresh air…. Holy shit! This movie came out on October 17th! What a dope coincidence that it landed 17th being that I just started the series spontaneously. 11 years exactly. Wow.
I remember ordering this when it came out On Demand and loving it. Still love this. It’s savagely violent. I almost couldn’t finish my food just by looking at the hitchhiker. I remember this movie like it was yesterday but it still affects me. It’s even better now because I developed a keen eye for little details by watching so many horror movies. Subtle shit like the leak on the ceiling in the basement forming a puddle early in the movie and noticing that’s the reason there’s a flood by the time Jessica Biel gets thrown down there. Before, I would have probably been like, “Why the fuck is the basement a pool?”
Speaking of Jessica Biel, watching this as an adult, I noticed she’s a stone cold bitch in this movie. She bitches about the weed in the car, then she disrespects the weed, puts everybody in danger and gets an attitude with her boyfriend over it like it’s his fault. …….and I STILL was thinking, “Well, helloooo there, snowflake.” Her body is on fleek!
Shout out to Marcus Nipsel and Michael Bay for trying their ALL to get her nipples rigid. They succeeded briefly. But props to Biel’s jugs for defying damn near every classic element. She went from hiding in a meat freezer, to running through sprinklers, to running in heavy rain and her nipples didn’t even flinch. Trust me, I checked.
What else did I notice? …. A lot of Leatherface’s past is explained. We get to see him sewing himself a new face and his bare face, all deformed from some skin disease.
OH, this might be a reach but the fact that the group was on their way to a Skynyrd concert could be a play on words. Leatherface?…..you see where I’m going here? He’s a skinner. Maybe it has nothing to do with that and they just really love Lynyrd Skynyrd. After all, they were blasting “Sweet Home Alabama” in the car. I can go on forever about this movie. It’s THAT good.
Day 18: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)
Who the fuck is Tommy? I thought his name was Jedidiah. Anyway, Jordana Brewster is one fine bitch. Why am I just now seeing this? Good prequel to the 2003 remake. One problem: When Chrissie hides in what appears to be a tub of blood at first, why is her face the only thing covered in blood? The liquid is clear when it drops off of her and the knife. Then when she gets out, she’s completely covered in blood. WHAT WAS THIS?! I’ll tell you what it was. The most obvious continuity error of all time. The beginning of this movie could’ve passed as the music video for 2Pac’s “Brenda’s Got A Baby”. “She wrapped the baby up and threw him in a traaash heap.” Turns out, Leatherface was a dumpster baby.
Day 19: Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)
This one starts where the original movie ended which was dope. Leatherface’s name is Jed and not Tommy. I was glad about that. Trey Songz dies…..HALLELUJAH! The man can’t act, I’m sorry. ….. Oh look, a dead armadillo. Oh, the weird chick from LOST! She’s uh… veryyy…..very THOTful, if you will. This, I didn’t get. Why is the camera always pointed at her ass? We get it, she has a nice ass. But why? Especially if you’re gonna show her ass in a thong later on in the movie, why would you keep focusing on her bu..oooh I see. Of course. Whore-shadowing.
Anyway, the scene where Leatherface sews his new face on has never been so graphic. So that’s cool. What’s not cool is the way the movie tried to make us feel for Leatherface a little. Am I supposed to feel sympathy for this guy? I don’t give a damn if you’re my mother, if you murder innocent people, I don’t bangs wit chu, bruh. “Ladies makeup? What a fruitcake!”
Nevertheless, I enjoyed this movie and watching this whole collection.
40 years of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. SWAG!
Day 20: A Nightmare On Elm Street (1984)
Oh, we got another anniversary here! 30th anniversary of A Nightmare on Elm Street. Had to end the 2nd trimester of #ScaryMovieADayMonth with a goddamn classic! This movie pushed cinema boundaries. Changed the fucking game. The special effects still hold up til this day. 80’s movies have the best special effects because none of it was digital. No CGI. Everything was crafted brilliantly for the movies. Blood & makeup, remote control robots, all the details in the background, all that shit. By hand.
A Nightmare On Elm Street was unique. Some of the scenes in this movie still impress me. They just don’t make them like this anymore. There will never be another Freddy Krueger to me. Robert Englund is so good, and he has this distinct face that played as much a part as the fedora, the striped sweater and the metal-clawed brown leather glove in making this character iconic. It just worked. Perfectly.
20 movies down. 11 to go.
Game face: ON.
See you fuckers in 11 days. *hangs up blood-filled piñata and picks up chainsaw while blindfolded*
