Well it’s February which means shitty weather, buying last minute cards for your sweetheart, and, of course, Black History Month. To celebrate the latter I’ve put together a special tribute to some of the baddest brothers and sweet soul sisters of exploitation cinema. Dig it!
People can say what they want about the third installment of the Texas Chainsaw franchise, but when it comes to pure, unadulterated ridiculousness of epic proportions, it’s clear that the trailer for Leatherface stands tall.
