The Best and Worst Movie Taglines of All Time, #95

The lists of the best and worst movie tagline marketing minds ever conceived continues! See the format and the beginning of the list here: http://www.mistercinecal.com/2015/06/the-best-and-worst-movie-taglines-of.html

Best #95
Which: "They're tobacco chewin', gut chewin', cannibal kinfolk from Hell!"
Where: Redneck Zombies
What: Succinct Summary
When: 1989
Why: Succinct Summaries are dominating a bit in the early going but there's a lot to be said for a trash movie that just lets you know its trash from the title and leaves you in no doubt with the tagline. What tickles me particularly about that it implies that there are also tobacco chewin', gut chewin', cannibal kinfolk from Heaven. If you happen to run into the cannibal kinfolk who aren't good folks, that's just your bad luck.

Worst #95
Which: "He puts the teeth in terror"
Where: Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3
What: ???
When: 1990
Why: Look, I know they mean the teeth of a chainsaw. I get that. But there is no 'teeth' in 'terror'. There just isn't. Take it up with the dictionary.
