Directed in 1974 by Tobe Hooper, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is my favorite horror film, and while it may not be the scariest movie ever made, it certainly is one of the most entertaining.
A film that’s impossible to predict, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre does offer up, in it’s opening scene, a slight hint of the craziness that lies ahead when pieces of a mangled corpse are illuminated (albeit briefly) by the flash from an instant camera. It’s an opening that’s both grisly and bizarre, yet as I said it just opens the door a little bit, providing only the tiniest inkling of what’s to follow. That’s why I love The Texas Chainsaw Massacre; it pushes the envelope continuously, taking us on a wild, freaked-out ride that gets wilder and freakier with each passing moment, and culminates in a ‘dinner party’ finale that is absolute, bat-shit insanity.
