Trick or Treat?

Tags: | |

One of the many silly books being published for Halloween is The Horror Film Quiz Book. The questions are organised by film, though it might have been as well to categorise them according to difficulty. They range from the absurdly easy – ‘who directed the original Psycho?’ or ‘For his main female lead roles Hitchcock chose girls with what hair colour?’ – to the utterly impossible for anyone except the most committed horror nerd: ‘What type of chainsaw was used in Texas Chainsaw Massacre?’ Winter evening fun for all the family.

    I went see the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre when it was rereleased for the first time after it finally got a certificate (the late 90s sometime?) In the lobby afterwards I overheard someone complaining to a friend that four people being killed hardly qualified as a massacre.
