Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The

1974 / d. Tobe Hooper
Controversial, grizzly, terrifying: horror filmmaking at its finest. A repulsive glimpse into the savage side of America in which a group of roadtripping teens are hunted by a family of cannibalistic psychopaths. Too brutal to be considered an ordinary slasher film, THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE is revered for its grainy documentary-style feel, which makes the movie seem all-too-real. A true landmark classic.
