I could probably dedicate an entire podcast to 1974's "Texas Chainsaw Massacre"--this is already my second full episode focused on how much I love this movie. But this week I'm not alone--Brooklyn drag king Vigor Mortis joins me to dive deep on what we agree is a beautiful piece of American cinema. We explore the history of Ed Gein, the sociopolitical correlations of the movie to today, the Sawyer family's morality, Sally's willful determination to live, the surprising treatment of Franklin, the layers of Leatherface and the unnecessary backstories offered throughout the series.
