A deep dive into one of the most influential horror films of all time, Leatherface and Sally Hardesty.

A deep dive into one of the most influential horror films of all time, Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Joining us this week is writer/actor Isaura Barbé-Brown. We dive deep into Isaura's love of this film, where it stands culturally, how it influenced horror films, and show a little sympathy for overwhelmed Leatherface.

Read Isaura's piece on Bloody Women Film Journal about Sally Hardesty's iconic status as a final girl.

Produced and presented by Anna Bogutskaya
