Grab your best white tank top and get ready to go back in time, because we have a 2000s "period piece" to discuss on this episode of the Aughts pod. Joining your faithful co-hosts this time around are screenwriter Michael Kennedy and artist Nay Bever, which makes this a full scale Attack of the Queerwolf podcast reunion special as the group convenes to discuss The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The first movie in the new millennium to reboot the Chainsaw universe, TCM '03 was also the first remake to land from one of the decade's genre powerhouses: Platinum Dunes, the production company that is extremely notable for the fact that it belongs to Michael Bay. Starring Jessica Biel — the VP of the Tank Top Horror ticket alongside President Eliza Dushku — Eric Balfour, and the lowest riding bootcut jeans you can find, this is the chartreuse glazed originator of the post-9/11 reboot wave. Find out from our guests how this blockbuster put the nail in the coffin of 90s horror, and why titles from the 1970s were the best fit for horror's last days of wild excess.
