I hate to say it but I didn't watch Chainsaw 2 until 2017. I think the issue was that I loved the first one so much that I didn't want the sequel to ruin that for me. Well, it wasn't until Shay, my girlfriend and lover of all things Chop-Top, persuaded me to FINALLY give it a go. For you other doubters out there, if you haven't seen TCM2, you're missing out!
While the film itself is a tonal shift from the original, it isn't a bad change. Instead, we are given a completely new story and take on an already iconic character. And speaking of icons, we also get a handful of new folks to fall in love with as well. One being Chop-Top, played by Bill Moseley. Moseley has a slew of roles under his belt, but few compare to his creepy addition to the Sawyer family.
Otis is definitely comparable, and I think that's what sets Zombie's films apart from the rest. While I'm not the biggest fan of House of 1000 Corpses, it has grown on me. And for a directorial debut, it isn't bad. But when compared to Devil's Rejects, Corpses definitely gets lost amongst the crowd. The performances of Moseley and company are next level, and because of which, the fans were always left wanting more.
Enter 3 from Hell, Zombie's latest venture into the world of the Firefly family. This is where Brake joins the team as Winslow Foxworth Coltrane, also known as Foxy. The plot of the film produced by Lionsgate and Saban Films is currently unknown but will surely up the stakes for the murderous bunch since every law enforcement out there will try to bring them down again.
Be sure to check out Zombie's latest horror jaunt in theaters. 3 from Hell will hit a three day 900 select theater run on September 16, 17 and 18, 2019 through Fathom’s Digital Broadcast Network. Tickets are available at HERE.
