The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre ★★★★★

one of the best horror films of all time.

the opening is amazing and handles the exposition very well. incredible tension building, the atmosphere and the sound design further enhances the greatness of the film and is precisely the reason it works so well. we don't know much about any characters and yet it's able to create a nauseating experience filled to the brim with the screams, the violence is never shown explicitly and is only suggested in most scenes but it's still sickening and terrifying especially those last 30 minutes with the constant screaming and the intense chase sequence. the dinner sequence is also fantastic—really claustrophobic and the chaotic editing really helps and it achieves so much in a short budget, rightfully deserves it's place as a horror classic. iconic final shot!
