Ah, those snarky bastards at The Onion

They’ve now created a parody film review show called Film Standard (actually “now created” is a bit of a loose term), hosted by their “in-house movie critic” Peter K. Rosenthal. With Halloween being upon us, Rosenthal decided to deconsruct the old horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Under his scrutinizing eye, TTCM becomes a mystery thriller — a veritable whodunit that never fully answers its own mystery.

Absurdism for absurdism’s sake, Film Standard won’t waste your time, but it won’t exactly make your soul any richer either. Watch at your own ennui.
