I miss the tv show Oddities, especially Evan (centre in photo). She is the coolest person!

Such a great episode of Tales From the Crypt!
As gruesome as dying can be, the creation of a living being can be just as gruesome. This music video does a great job of showing this with just the right creep factor. The ending is also grim, but a good statement on the horror of humanity.
Kim Henkel’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation
One of my all-time favourite horror movies is Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. I picked it up off the shelf because it starred Matthew McConaughey. I was not expecting it to be very good, but its simple storyline of lost teens in the woods combined with McConaughey’s insane character and gratuitous gore satisfied what I love in a horror movie. My favourite scene is when McConnaughey’s character sets another character on fire — it is the most insane moment! Love it!
This installment in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise was the first I saw — and it sold me on consuming every other movie in the series. In general, most of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequels are pretty terrible. I have one other favourite in the series, but I will save that for another blog post. Nothing compares to the original.
