Join MG for a Halloween treat as we take on our first Twitch-based episode! Classic films always set a standard, but few movies are so groundbreaking that they create an entirely new genre, and Tobe Hooper's terrifying The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the biggest game-changers in cinema history.
