The Texas Chain Saw Massacre
Unspooled #300.3 October 13, 2021
Amy & Paul get revved up over 1974’s archetypal slasher film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre! They draw parallels between the film and post-Vietnam America, examine the Sawyer family’s relatable drive to survive in a harsh capitalist world, and prepare themselves for the next remake. Plus: Amy tells the story of the Candy Man murders.
