A group of teenagers on the road in Texas stop off at the wrong farm and encounter a family gone awry. Once abattoir workers, the decay of the Southern rural economy has left them unemployed, and the directionless father and sons take to using their butchering skills on passing people. One by one, the kids encounter members of the grisly family.

No other film has managed to infuriate movie critics and analysts as Hooper’s vile and detestable horror film that depicts the back woods of the South as a futile wasteland filled with death, dread, and grime. Hooper pretty much set the bar high in terms of how harrowing the horror genre could be in cinemas, and “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” is still such a visceral experience to behold. Still a remarkable and utterly unnerving horror film to this day, “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” is a masterpiece of the genre with a genuinely horrifying villain whose own motives are baseless and void of motive, hence why he’s still such a massive beast on film. - by Felix Vasquez Jr.
