First released to a shocked public in 1974, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has a deserved reputation as a compelling part of a new wave of American horror films.

Classic in terror - The Texas Chainsaw Massacre review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
04/11/2008

Often copied by never beaten, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remains a powerful classic of the horror genre. For anyone who enjoys the serial killing or gore evident in today's releases, you have to check out this first.

The name itself is misleading as it creates the impression that the film will be full of blood can carnage. This is far from the truth as Hooper relies on sheer psychological terror to convey the horror of the situation. However avoid the remake and subsequent sequels as it was always going to be downhill from here.
