Last August the news broke that Legendary Entertainment/Legendary Pictures was planning to develop new films in the Texas Chain Saw Massacre franchise and also a TV series, after the company closed a deal with Kim Henkel to whom the rights had reverted back to, Henkel being the writer and producer of the 1974 classic and also the director of 1994’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation – though I would imagine that she doesn’t want to be remembered for that debacle which to my mind is second only to the dire Texas Chainsaw as the worst entry in this very erratic series.

Anyway, it recently came through that Fede Álvarez [Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe] is producing the first film for Henkel and Legendary. Even though I’d love to see what he’d do with it, Álvarez is not directing though, and is currently seeking a filmmaker to attach to the project. Word out is that this will be a direct sequel to Hooper’s original film, though seeing as Marilyn Burns passed away in 2014 they would have to do something slightly different to what has recently been done with Halloween to continue the story. And no doubt the timeline of the series will get even more confused!

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
