Chainsaw-Banner

In our quest to categorize great movie moments, the idea of chainsaw usage came to mind. Certainly there are more than 10 films with chainsaws being used, though this wood cutting device has been featured in a few that exceed expectations. Now out of fairness, this whole list could probably feature all Asian movies, as they tend to tack on chainsaws to body part pretty frequent. Though we limited it to 2 of the most … Continue reading

exorcist1-510x196

With Halloween around the corner, we wanted to make sure we included our mark on the top 20 scariest films of all time.

This means that it will pick up exactly where the original left off and not a day later. This will be done in 3D (shocking I know) and is tentatively being called Leatherface 3D. Lionsgate and Twisted Pictures will be teaming up to … Continue reading
