Our First Times: THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974)!!

TCM1

Last year, the Icons of Fright staff and I all began contributing to what we called “Icons Firsts”, a series of articles detailing the stories of our first encounters with classic horror films.

Untitled-1

Last year, my good friend Natty and I started doing “Double Feature Adventures“, which basically translated into finding two completely different types of films, and finding the smallest thing in common between them (for example, HALLOWEEN 6 and MARTHA MARCY MAY MARLENE both had cults in them, but couldn’t be more different in tone and […]
