    Cat on the Wall Movie Reviews: The Founder (2017)

    Revisiting Deranged (1974) – A Film Review

    By Brandon Engel. The film Deranged came out in 1974, the same year as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Both films were inspired by the Wisconsin murderer and body snatcher, Ed Gein, and both films were pivotal in terms of establishing the so-called hixploitation subgenre, which toys with stereotypical portrayals of rural whites or hillbillies in […]
