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

"FORMAT: 35mm PRINT QUALITY: ★★★★½ NOTES: French print, only made evident from the title added before the opening crawl, screened on the day of the massacre. Some scenes look more like the an original print than others, but there are enough scratches and black (at one point white) cuts to make it feel like a first-time experience. It’s kind of a bummer that the print looks so good, however, upon hearing that last year’s print was far older and grittier, and must’ve run its course s"

"The first time I felt like I hadn't really watched a movie but more experienced something harrowing. Gritty and grueling, TCM never lets up and feels real to this day. Darkly comic but sickeningly maddening to the point where you feel a bit of panic slip in as you follow it's protagonist. TCM is a classic for a reason and it changed my perspective on what movies could do as a child. It fostered a gruesome fascination with the movie that constantly made me come back to it. "

Slant’s 100 Greatest Horror Films – 2018 Edition (100 movies items)

"Opening in utter darkness illuminated by sudden, dreadful flashes, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre begins with a police report describing a violated corpse as “a grisly work of art,” a term that also applies perfectly to Tobe Hooper’s legendary grindhouse masterpiece. A rough-hewn American Gothic canvas, the film charts the trajectory of a batch of youngsters from a clammy van to the dangling hooks of an abbatoir run by a cannibalistic clan. Materializing in the middle of the horror genre’s "
