Chainsaw Films

Was doing some research and found some films with Chainsaws. Check out Evil Dead where the character Ash attaches a chainsaw to his arm in the video below.

Note the tone and pace of the trailer with the theatrical narrative, as well as the hand rising up from the ground at 0:18 seconds that we discussed at our previous meeting.

Interestingly, the third film of the Evil Dead series takes a completely different tone. Where the previous trailer kept a creepy atmosphere, this is completely comical and light-hearted.

And finally, there is the Texas Chainsaw Massacre films to be aware of. There are a number of films and sequels from the original 1974 film to the 2006 remake. It quite interesting to compare how trailer techniques have developed with the two films, which are essentially based on the same subject matter.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)
