Rodarte Sisters Inspired By The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

  • Pin it

The two Rodarte sisters, Kate and Laura Mulleavy admitted openly to be inspired by horror movies like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and Dawn of the Dead. They’re also in talks for their own movie. No word about the genre, yet.

Expecting more trashed fabric and dechiré outfits for their upcoming collection. Any horror movie matching up to the Chain Massacre legend lately? (WWD, photos Impawards, Zimbio, photochopping courtesy Stylefrizz)

Rodarte Sisters Inspiration

Chainsaw Massacre Dawn of the Dead

OMG, how scared I was seeing that film for the first time. Okay, I also “enjoyed” Dawn of the Dead. I’ve been into horror a lot but Hostel has closed that door forever. Ugh….I even visited the Netherlands’ “Weekend of Terror”. Hours long horror, terror, zombies, blood, lot off blood…..arrgghh…..Weekend of Terror is over here. It’s now the week long Amsterdam Fantastic Film Festival.
So it’s back….aarrghhh….almost like in horror….it’s back….So if you’ve plans in Spring in April to visit Amsterdam go to that festival! (This is to and for “The Boys :D)

Oh, that reminds of Abel Ferrara’s early films! The Driller Killer, eeekkk and the best of them all Angel of Vengeance aka Ms 45. Abel Ferrara is of course also known for that great film Bad Lieutenant and The Funeral. And he such an amicable man.

Oh yes, the Rodarte sisters: their signature designs dredge in blood and wearable for their own size too? ;)

(confession to make: hate. Absolutely hate horror movies! :D) I can watch them only with alllll the lights on and onlyyyy during the day! While the sun is still up in the sky :P

I honestly tried hard to educate this “scared part” of me. Cannot. Will not. Life is so beautiful! Just smileeeee :)

Kpriss, most of those films are horrible, cheap, unhealthy and sexism stuff. I’ve never liked those ones. But some are really good. Tonight I’m gonna try one after a long time. In the dark and all by myself….The most scary one was definitely “The Blair Witch Project”. Haven’t you seen that one? I watched it in a preview for the press so I didn’t know a thing about it. Only that this was something special…..omg, how scared I was! I even screamed at the end :))) The trick was you see nothing at all only at the end… filthy murders and blood (ugh). I know a guy whose specialism is this kind of films and he is really scared to watch them alone at home or I could scare him in a dark wood by only saying: “Brrr, imagine a blair witch here.” LOL!

I find a bit of a strange source of inspiration but then again, horror was huge in the 80’s and so is fashion and now horror is back? I hope they are not inspired by that filthy hype Hostel film. Ugh! And you weren’t scared to photoshop the chain?

lol! Not one bit!

Actually I have seen The Blair Witch Project (is there anyone who hasn’t?) and it didn’t scare me that much. I think.

Last I’ve seen: The Meat Train and The Last House On The Left. The last one wasn’t all that horror, it was..different. So you see, I do watch them horror movies (toldja I wanted to tame that scared alter ego) but Saw (the last ones) for instance I can’t. Really can’t.

Really? Blair Witch didn’t scare you? No? Goh…
I haven’t watch “horror” for a while and it’s a large range from good until very bad films or the other way around. But I love the scary part as in a scary attraction as eehhhh….yes, a roller coaster! It’s fun and it’s scary at the same time or something like that…..

I know what you mean. What I don’t like and despise the most is mean horror. When all that cruelty and crimes and blood has no purpose at all. That’s the kind of movie I can’t stomach. You know there was a movie with Gemma Ward – one in which she was wearing a mask and went on killing people? Disgusting. There was really no purpose to that. It was mean, petit and sick.

I’ve not watch that film and this are the ones I don’t like to watch. I’ve seen to many sick films and I think that people who loves those kind of horror are sick in the head themselves. I’m sure. They look like nice, normal people, well educated people too….right……
I watched Dog Soldiers yesterday….werewolves in the Scottish Highlands, what a beauty to watch the views, killed a whole peloton of soldiers and some changed into a werewolf of course, I type this with a big smile and shall not bother you with bloody details which were not really over exploited. Only one survived. A fave actor of mine, Kevin McKidd. I think he’s so sexy. He’s a Scot so that accent….GRRRRR…..He’s not a pretty boy. I’m not into pretty boys really. Those who have watched the series Rome knows who he is, Lucius Vorenus. GRRRR….

I only like a few horror films and it’s usually because they work as real atmosphere pieces. Case in point: the original Japanese film, Ring.
However when I saw the remake of the Tezas Chainsaw Massacre – the one with Jessica Biel playing the lead – I was downright inspired by it – so much so, I paid to see it twice! I went into it expecting it to be terrible but was pleasantly surprised to find it really thrilling! It was suspenseful and dark and realistic.
I also recommend the first Saw film – it is a claustrophobic masterpiece. (Unfortunately all the sequels are disgusting and I mean DISGUSTING gore parties. Avoid at all costs!)

I almost never pay a dime for remakes. (Except for films like The Departed)
Inspired? Hopes you not bought a chainsaw!?
I love the earlier David Cronenberg films. They are disturbing, I can’t help it being intrigued by them. Would love to see a some of those again.

Big Tony: LOL! You don’t scare me one bit because scary people are everywhere…..

They are also inspired by the femicide of Mexican factory workers in Juarez.

You know what inspires me? The thought of not buying anything from Rodarte or MAC.
