Horror Movie Discussion #21: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

Post by Alien Redrum »

IMDB Synopsis:
En route to visit their grandfather's grave (which has apparently been ritualistically desecrated), five teenagers drive past a slaughterhouse, pick up (and quickly drop) a sinister hitch-hiker, eat some delicious home-cured meat at a roadside gas station, before ending up at the old family home... where they're plunged into a never-ending nightmare as they meet a family of cannibals who more than make up in power tools what they lack in social skills...

I'm thinking I might make one to keep in the trunk of the car though. Might be nice to have hot water if I ever have to watch a Matthews compound for 3-4 days hoping to get the drop on Sergio Frenchi. - Neon Bolan

I won't go as far to say the movie is overrated, because it really deserves its place in the genre. However, I can comfortably say that the film does not hold up very well, at all.

The protagonists are either unlikeable or so one dimensional that you really don't care if they live or die, and in some cases you hope that they eat it. (That fat fuck in the wheelchair immediately comes to mind.)

Like I said, it has a well deserved spot on horror history, but I can only recommend rent it for someone who has never seen it.

Okay, it's a problem with the theme. If you change your theme to subsilver, you can vote. :lol:

I think it's time for a new them on the board, as this one is no longer updated. :(

This is like Hitler's Germany. Sure, we can talk about things all we want, but with no vote the debate is meaningless.

I first read that as CMBing. That would be Cash Money Brothers, which, in fact, we are.

Yeah, totally. All these posts, and AR sitting around all day in his cape and underwear, with absolutely no work being done here to solve this problem.

This is no way to run the Internet my friend, no way at all. :shake:
