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

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

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 "

"11.10. Aina on mukava huomata, että genreklassikko on maineensa veroinen. Ellei jopa parempi. Voi olla, että mieltymykseni tietynlaiseen rähjäiseen ja takapajuiseen estetiikkaan nostaa pisteitä, mutta onhan tämä nyt muutenkin ässä. Vinksahtanut huumori sopii kuvioon, eikä onneksi lähde lapasesta tai määrittele jokaista kohtausta. Tai riippuu katsojasta."

"When the Bride slams the door against Buck's head, his feet twitch in a way resembling Kirk's as he is bludgeoned by Leatherface. Referenced in the opening monologue, refering to the similair massacre in this film."
