THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (1974 U.S.) D/W/P: TOBE HOOPER W: KIM HENKEL P: LOU PERRAINO
This infamous terror classic needs no introduction. Marilyn Burns being chased around by Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) with a big chainsaw is still scary and exhausting, while grampa trying to hold the hammer is still hilarious. Let`s not forget the meathook scene, the great opening music and the endlessly copied and spoofed iconography. With the voice of John Larroquette. Among the handful of true horror essentials. Hooper`s subsequent string of (mostly) failures is most puzzling. Remade. And there were sequels.
