For our newest episode, Jinx welcomes filmmaker Padraig Reynolds to the show. Mr. Reynolds, who wrote and directed 2011’s Rites of Spring and the new IFC Midnight release The Devil’s Dolls, has chosen one of his favorite movies to chat about - Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
With its oppressive tone, unrelenting tension and bursts of horrific violence, Texas Chain Saw inspires a talk on its effectiveness as a horror film, its sequels, and the various layers to be found within the film’s tale. There are also digressions aplenty, which include discussions on the films of Rob Zombie, how underrated the Friday the 13th remake is, and why William Devane should really work more often than he does.
It’s a great chat with a fantastic guest on a brilliant film, and it’s one we hope you enjoy!
