A Cadaver in the Baggage Check

If you think MAN OF STEEL and BATMAN VS. SUPERMAN split the fan community down the middle—Was it awesome? Did it suck? Yes! And Yes! Or, No, you’re wrong!—those films ain’t got NOTHIN’ on THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART 2. A lot of Horror fans regard it as a classic, and it makes an even number want to barf. I fall into the latter category. Yes, I realize it was supposed to be a parody. Not all things should be, or even CAN be, successfully parodied. TCM2 was stupid, and it took a piss all over the original, one of the most seminal and finest Horror movies ever made. And yes, compared to the rest of the films in the Chainsaw franchise, part 2 looks like high art. But being first among garbage still means you are garbage. IT is garbage.

Even for a staunch TCM2 hater like me, though, this story is kinda funny. “Nubbins,” the cadaver prop from the film, was recently transported by its owner, fanboy Jason Guy, to Arizona for a convention. He accomplished this by taking the prop-corpse with him on an airplane. Would YOU have been willing to sit next to Nubbins in coach? I would. Not like it’s a REAL corpse or anything. Then again, if it WAS a real rotting cadaver it wouldn’t stink any worse than did TCM2.
