The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 1974

In 1974, horror cinema changed forever when The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was unleashed on frightened movie-goers nationwide and now that same film, which was once deemed taboo and even banned in multiple countries, has gone on to be lovingly embraced by classic horror fans worldwide.  To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this genre essential, The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews will dig deep under the skin and see why this film still packs a punch after four decades and countless imitators.  You’ll get the terrifying inside story behind the real events that inspired the film, the landscape of the horror genre at the time, and an in-depth look behind-the-scenes of this low-budget shocker.  Then, if that wasn’t enough, we’ll look at the 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set and even, for better or worse, a brief rundown of the rest of the Texas Chainsaw film franchise.  So, turn down the lights and rev up your chainsaws – it’s going to be quite a trip!

The DVD Shelf Foreign Flix: TrollHunter

This episode of The DVD Shelf Foreign Flix will whisk you away to the dark woods of Norway as three college students with a camera follow a grizzled exterminator who spends his nights tracking down the elusive troll- a towering species of monsters ripped right out of the pages of ancient Norwegian folklore.  With its unique blend of horror, fantasy, and comedy, TrollHunter is indeed a shot in the arm for the tired found-footage genre, which will also be touched upon in this review.

The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews: The Green Hornet

The ongoing trend of big budget comic book movies has had its ups and downs and one major down for many fans has been the 2011 reboot of the 30s-era pulp crimefighter, The Green Hornet, starring comedic actor Seth Rogen as a much goofier Green Hornet than we’ve ever seen before.  Alongside him is Taiwanese musical superstar, Jay Chou, as his highly-skilled sidekick, Kato.  These nearly 80-year-old characters have seen their own fair share of reinterpretations- most famously, a 1966 TV series that only lasted one season and starred Van Williams and martial arts master Bruce Lee.  In this episode of The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews, I’ll look at The Green Hornet’s illustrious history, then I’ll put Seth Rogen’s controversial turn as the masked vigilante to the test and see if the film truly deserves the hate it gets.  Also included is a little bonus review of 2013’s reboot of another legendary hero, The Lone Ranger, who is actually considered to be an ancestor of The Green Hornet.
