Overrated much?

I seriously don't get why this is being called a "classic"!?, it's not, it's really slow and predictable, it's a total waste of time. It's exactly like those never ending Friday 13th sequels, they never would end and they were all the same.

I just don't get what's so great about this, there is no story to it, just a bunch of kids in a deserted place and they pretty much all get kil... read more

Not The Kind Of Guy You'd Lend Your Tools To

As someone whom is often very frustrated with most horror flicks, I was very pleased that this movie's plotline came off as very genuine. While most horrors tend to want the viewer say things to the screen like "Idiot! Run outside, not to the upstairs!" or "Don't go in there, you moron!", this movie actually made the situation of the onscreen victims seem logistically believable. Therefor,... read more

A classic

Since it is such a classic, I really had to watch this flick at some point and I had some rather high expectations (you can say whatever you want but it is definitely a really bad-ass title). The first time I watched it, to be honest, I was actually rather apprehensive as I thought it would be really terrifying. Eventually, I thought it was not really scary, sure, it was unsettling but not really ... read more

Film Diary 2021 (186 movies items)

" This is literally one of the most annoying and dumbest movies I’ve ever seen. The only redeeming quality of this movie is Leatherface’s retarded rampage and the only way to view this picture as good is to see it as an experimentation in writing unlikeable, incompetent and inactive characters… This movie is trash and I can’t waste anymore of my time on this garbage even by showing my contempt.

"Road trips are dangerous and definitely don't pick up the hitchhiker! TCM brought us some memorable characters, most of all Leatherface. Cannibalism is bad enough without a truly demented family that engages in it. Marilyn Burns certainly portrayed the absolute terror of being in the hands of a whacked-out family bent on killing along with a crazy run for escape. Dark humor often came across as chilling. In the hands of anyone else, it would have flopped but Tobe Hooper made it solid gold. • "

"24.4. Blu-ray Uusintakatselu. Onhan tää edelleen mitä äärimmäisin voimannäyte. Kaoottinen, äärimmäinen terrori kaiketi kuvastaa myös aikaansa, mutta on erityisesti tekniseltä kannalta katsottuna aika ylittämätön. En muista aiemmin huomioineeni humoristista (kehityksen tuoman työttömyyden riivaamaa) epätoimiva perhe -aspektiakaan. VHS:ltä ja DVD:ltä viimeksi n. 15 vuotta sitten katsottuna, Second Sight:n blu-ray tuo aiempiin formaatteihin nähden paremmin 16mm:n luonteen e"
