Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers: Yes, this film is real

Chainsaws have characterised modern horror films since the 1970s. These franchises include The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The Evil Dead, and the one we’re discussing today… Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers. While scouring HMV for the Fifty Shades of Grey boxset, Jack discovered a forgotten masterpiece. Heartlessly shunned by The Academy, this 1988 grindhouse flick has everything a wholesome family film needs: Hollywood, hookers and chainsaws. This is an actual film. We watched it.

Sausage Parties? - Is there a future for R-rated animation?

In 2016, Sausage party became the first R-rated computer-generated animation to hit cinemas. It’s combination of Disney-esque graphics with explicit comedy became a source of hilarity, shock and for some, a whole new meaning to feeling guilty while binge eating. But this isn’t the first time a film like this has blessed our screens.
