nuking chestnuts

Now let me tell you, I haven't seen the trailer for Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning yet. It's only viewable during certain times of the day or something...and sad to say, I'm on an old hand-cranked dial-up internet here. Thus, a viewing will have to come later for me. Sigh. I did see this still from the trailer, though...and it certainly fulfilled my what the fuck?? quota for today.

I have no clue as to who that is, what's going on, or why a shot like that would be in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. What I do know, however, is that the next time I spot one of these at a flea market:

I'm totally buying it and re-selling it on eBay to some hapless horror fan. It's rare TCM memorabilia, dude! No reserve!

I think it's Sheriff Hoyt. Yup, he's back.

Well, by golly, I think that's Ol' Cowboy Ed Gein. Gives a whole new meaning to "rope and wrangle," eh?

Didn't Hoyt get squished by Jessica Biel's renegade mack truck?

Sheriff Hoyt...he's one bad mutha---

Shut yo mouth!

Stacie, did you notice that Terror Train is up for a remake? I wonder if they will keep the killer the same so he will stay in your Hall of Infamy.

Yeah...and forgetting that is why I'm an idiot! :D Total brain-fart.

Terror Train is up for a remake?! Good lord. How difficult is it to think up a NEW formulaic slasher plot? Terror Train isn't that great OR original, though it has an odd yet special place in my heart. I'll be behind it 1,000,000% if Gene Shalit makes a return appearance, though.
