Released on October 1, 1974, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE remains the greatest grindhouse title ever made. It is horrific, humorous, claustrophobic, and terrifying. This was Tobe Hooper’s second film and it is a masterpiece of the macabre.

 

NARRATOR: The film which you are about to see is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of five youths, in particular Sally Hardesty and her invalid brother, Franklin. It is all the more tragic in that they were young. But, had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected nor would they have wished to see as much of the mad and macabre as they were to see that day. For them an idyllic summer afternoon drive became a nightmare. The events of that day were to lead to the discovery of one of the most bizarre crimes in the annals of American history, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

 

 

See you on forty deuce,

    I waver on a lot of things, but TCM really could be the greatest horror film ever made. Every time I watch it, I’m bowled over by how much brilliance it contains. It was just this perfect storm of talent and inspiration.
