Gobbledygeek: Episode 159 – You Like Head Cheese?

Gobbledyween week three is here, and I hope you’ve got an empty stomach, because we’re about to load you up on barbecue, sausages, and yes, head cheese. Paul and AJ take a look back at Tobe Hooper’s 1974 endurance test The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. As usual, they have a difference of opinion. What they can agree on is that there’s a lot of screaming, the wackiest bunch of hillbillies this side of Beverly Hills, and actually not a lot of onscreen violence. Oh, and Ed Gein was a pretty messed-up guy. Plus, Paul is chilled and delighted by the first issue of Afterlife with Archie.

Next time!

Gobbledyween takes a turn toward the vampiric with Let the Right One In.
