This may be one of the reasons why it took me so long to have children myself. Child and Antichrist; synonymous don’t you think? Who would have thunk that the devil had the face of an angel? In any case, this is not quite the scare that The Exorcist had on me but there were enough scares for me to like it at a very early age. Question, what if the child was called something other than Damien like maybe Chuck or Bob? AKA read Good Omens by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Would he have been the same problem child?
Oh, Leatherface. How I love you! You are creepy on so many level from the shoes on your feet to your blood stained apron to the mask of human flesh on your face. Seriously, you are the true American Psycho. When you compare Leatherface to another famous mass killer like Jason Vorhees, Friday the 13th, there is a real grounded sense of a killer out in the woods. With Jason, you could kill or maim or just piss him off but he will just keep after you. With Leatherface, he has the upper hand because the teens are playing on his terms and on his turf plus he has a chainsaw. That is totally cool.
