Fun with Chainsaws0

Director Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror masterpiece The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (and to a lesser extent, the 2003 remake directed by Marcus Nispel) has influenced a lot of people to pull some ridiculous pranks.  But perhaps even without those films, doesn’t the fact that chainsaws are loud and can hack your limbs off just scream out fun and games?   

But, as cruel as some of these pranks are, I can’t help but find them funny.  And hopefully these people were smart enough to actually remove the chain belt from the saw before swinging the thing around.  If not, well, that’s what the Darwin Awards  are for.

This first clip, from Universal’s Halloween Horror Nights, shows a professional at work:

Yeah… I’d run, too.

But you don’t have to be a professional actor to be effective playing your favorite chainsaw-toting villain:

Poor little fireman kid!  He’ll be scarred for life!  Well, mentally at least.

It also should be noted that Halloween isn’t the only time of the year when a chainsaw can be used to scare the sh*t out of someone:

Now that I think about it, my Dad used to do stuff like that to me.  That explains a lot . . .
