When 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' hit theaters in 1974, it sent a wave of panic and terror through audiences, who believed, as the film suggested, that what they were watching was a depiction of events as they actually took place. The film itself was merely somewhat inspired by serial killer Ed Gein, but 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' left an everlasting mark on horror cinema, paving the way for more horrific "true stories" to terrify audiences in the decades to come.
Almost 40 years after the release of this landmark horror film, we revisit the cast and see what they're up to these days.
Long before he wrote 'Kiss Kiss Bang Bang' and 'Iron Man 3,' Shane Black helped write the script for the 1987 horror-comedy 'The Monster Squad' -- which was released the same year as Black's first big film, 'Lethal Weapon.'

Twenty-six years after its initial release, and now that the film has become a cult classic, we take a look back at some of your favorite cast members and see where they are now.

When 'The Rocky Horror Picture Show' first hit American theaters in 1975, it didn't perform very well at the box office, save for one Los Angeles theater. The subversive camp-horror musical film -- based on Richard O'Brien's original stage show -- became a cult classic when a theater in New York City began running midnight showings of it the following year. Since then, the film has become a Saturday night tradition around the country, where audience members interact with the film while actors perform a live "shadow" version in front of the screen.
It's been 38 years since 'The Rocky Horror Picture' show first hit theaters, so join us for a look back at the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
Forget 'Twilight' -- the 1987 film 'Near Dark' is leaps and bounds a better vampire film with a romantic twist. Directed by Kathryn Bigelow, the Western-flavored film followed a young man in a small Midwestern town who gets mixed up with a group of vampire drifters when one of them, a beautiful woman, bites him on the neck. 'Near Dark' wasn't a huge hit in its time, but has subsequently found a cult following over the years, and Bigelow has certainly proved herself since then, nabbing an Oscar for 'Zero Dark Thirty.'
Twenty-six years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see where they are now.
The first 'Friday the 13th' film was released in 1980 and introduced the world to Jason Voorhees.

Released in 1990, 'Ghost' starred Patrick Swayze as Sam Wheat, a man who dies as a result of a mugging gone awry, but his love for his fiance allows him to remain on Earth as a ghost. With the help of a psychic, Sam tries to avenge his death and reconnect with his fiance to resolve lingering issues before he moves on to the afterlife. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see where they are now.
Released in 1993, Disney's horror comedy 'Hocus Pocus' wasn't well-received, though it eventually became a cult Halloween classic. Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy play a trio of ancient witch sisters who are accidentally resurrected by a teen boy and his sister. The witches won't rest until they've absorbed the life force of all the town children to keep themselves young forever.

In 1996, Robert Rodriguez teamed up with Quentin Tarantino for the vampire horror flick 'From Dusk till Dawn.' Directed by Rodriguez from a script by Tarantino, the film follows two criminal brothers (George Clooney and Tarantino himself) as they hijack an RV containing a former preacher and his two teenagers and seek refuge in a seedy bar south of the border. But there's a catch: this bar is overrun by ancient vampires. 17 years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.
