It was twenty-two years ago that the world was taken to a new and unexplored world with the release of Jurassic Park. What began as another summer blockbuster for director Steven Spielberg quickly became a phenomenon that continued his signature genre melding style of adventure meets B-level monster flick. A theme park focused around the creation of dinosaurs was the prehistoric zoo that no one knew they needed.
When it comes to horror based documentaries most are centered around a film in the genre or a fandom. Director Rodney Ascher released his first full length documentary in 2012 called Room 237 that detailed the theories of Stanley Kubrick fantatics. The hidden messages and themes buried within The Shining were thrown at audiences to be scrutinized and praised. While many of the theories were over the top and hard to swallow, Ascher maintained an objective and unbiased approach to even the most radical ideas presented.
While the 2003 remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre may not have made fans and critics scream for a sequel, it did make enough money in the box office to garner a continuation in the reboot of the Leatherface mythos. Some decisions in the remake gave future filmmakers of the franchise some obstacles to overcome. Leatherface had been incapacitated after losing an arm to Erin's meat cleaver, Sheriff Hoyt had been killed by Erin, and ultimately a calm and collected Erin escaped the madness to inform police of the Hewitt's deviant ways.
