Matt H., writer at Cinemachine and co-host at An Alan Smithee Podcast, has completed his blog breakdown of Tobe Hooper's The Funhouse, which now stands as integral companion writing to the film - first of all, indispensable for realizing the wealth of text and subtext in it, but also providing a look at a bunch of other goodies that make The Funhouse such a piece of 80's filmmaking (like a tie-in novel!).

On a similar note, if you ever watch the perverse monster-movie 80's reboot TerrorVision, then Matt's review over at Cinemachine is also essentially the only piece of writing on that film you need to read (both because of its exhaustive incisiveness on contexts of the social and political sort, and because of the tiring repetition of needless humoring that is what consists all other writing on the film).  And actually, some of his best moments happen at his podcast's blog, so wade through that too.
