Unraveling The “True” Horror Of 1976’s “The Town That Dreaded Sundown”

“Based on a True Story” has always been an excellent marketing tool for films going back decades. From Alfred Hitchcock’s “Psycho” and Tobe Hooper’s “Texas Chainsaw Massacre,” which both took their ideas from the actions of real life Wisconsin serial killer and cannibal, Ed Gein, whose life had little to do with the aforementioned films to Kimberly Peirce’s “Boys Don’t Cry” which brutally stretched the truth to make a gender hero out of petty thief Brandon Teena, Hollywood has always taken liberties with “true” stories to suit its own political and sensationalist gains. 1,109 more words

Christmas Movies: Silent Night, Deadly Night 2 (1987)


I have, no fooling, seen this video over 500 times. It’s impossible not to smile at the sheer joy with which Ricky shoots a guy through a bin, and now knowing the context of it, it’s even funnier. 795 more words
