The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre ★★★★★

Easily one of my top horror films if not my favorite. The imagery is never not bold and horrific. The atmosphere is so claustrophobic and tense, sometimes it’s even irritating. Which makes for a consistently tense experience where, no matter how disturbing things might seem, you really never know what’s around the corner. The whole thing ends with an incredibly necessary space to breathe for both the viewer, the protagonist, and the killer (who is one of the weirdest and most interesting killers out there.)  Her final shriek says it all.
