Texas Chainsaw Massacre
By: Adam C.
This is the original
version of this movie before it was redone by Michael Bay. Inspired
by a true story, five teenagers set out to find an old home only to be in
the clutches of Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) and his sadistic and twisted
family. I bought the VHS version after hearing that this was one of
the scariest movies of all time. After inserting the tape in the
VCR, I was expecting a scary thriller with intense blood and gore, but I
was getting into all sorts of things when I first watched it. I
found this movie to be more graphically disturbing then scary.
Certain death scenes in the movie made my skin turn a ghastly white.
And the last big scene in the movie almost made me turn the movie off in
order to race to the bathroom on time. One thing I did realize from
watching this movie was the Rob Zombie totally ripped off this movie in
favor of his House of 1000 Corpses movie. Despite lacking a plot,
this movie did happen to scare the living piss out of me. This
factor helps bring the overall rating of this movie to a 4 out of 5.
I haven't seen the newer version of this movie yet, but I guess you'd be
better off seeing the original first if you want to have an idea of what
to expect when you go see the newer version.
