Musty TV's Maniacal Movie Countdown - Day 30

Wow. It's almost Halloween! How time flies when you're writing about creepy movies, trying to get a costume together, and oh yeah, watching your home team win the WORLD SERIES! GIANTS WOOOOO!

Sorry. Had to get that out. And hopefully the couch burning maniacs in town are suffering the worst hangovers of their lives right now.

Speaking of maniacs, the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is on Syfy at 5PM and 11:10PM, PST. I'm not sure if Syfy is going to cut the movie up for broadcast, but if you actually compare it to some of the gore found in Syfy's made-for-TV movies, it's not that graphic, so maybe they won't. In fact, if you compare it to pretty much any torture porn horror movie of late, it looks positively demure. It just feels a lot bloodier than it actually is, because it looks so...grimy. And cheap. And...well, almost like the snuff film a lot of people were convinced it was. But no, it's just a really effective bit of low budget film making.
