Double Edged Double Bill Episode 127: Leatherface Chainsaws Into Texas

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre revolutionized the horror genre. Somehow, it became a weird franchise. Now, it’s a horror series Double Edged Double Bill is taking a look at this spooky season! Adam Thomas and Thomas Mariani welcome horror culture writer Tiffany Blem to take a look at two odd Leatherface adventures. First, Tobe Hooper returns to warp the grounded horror of the original into a brazen carnival geek show with Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. Then, New Line Cinema tries to turn our face wearing country boy into the new box office horror cash cow with Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III! Together, our trio answers the crucial questions. How does Dennis Hopper juggle so many chainsaws? Is Viggo Mortensen eternally hot? Which two films will they choose for next week’s episode about David Cronenberg? Well, rev up your chainsaws and cut deep into this episode to find out!
