Texas Chain Saw Masacre
The Texas Chainsaw
Massacre: The Beginning (2006)
On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two friends (Taylor Handley and Matthew Bomer) and their girlfriends (Diora Baird and Jordana Brewster) get into an accident that calls their local sheriff (R. Lee Ermey) to the scene.
This is the beginning of a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured. Directed by Sheldon Turner.
This is the prequel to the Texas Chain Saw series with the modern youthful surburbian accents.. i.e. starring an up and coming young starlet, Jordana Brewster et al.
With that said, you have to be an damn good actress or actor to truly look terrified on film and Brewster is a damn good actress.
Plus, any movie with former Marine Drill Sargent R. Lee Ermey is a must see.
Catch it with someone that you'd like to hug on as a legitimate excuse.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974)
A group of 20-something college students are heading through the back roads of Texas en route to their grandfather's grave. Among them are Sally Hardesty (Marilyn Burns) and her brother Franklin.
They encounter an unpleasant hitchhiker (Edwin Neal) who slashes both himself & Franklin with a wicked-looking knife. The others manage to eject the hitchhiker from the vehicle, but shortly afterwards, they are forced to stop & wander over to a small, sinister clapboard house nearby.
What none of them realize is that this house is the home of the ghoulish Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) and his evil, demented family of cannibalistic psychopaths.
One at a time, the students are murdered for food by the evil Leatherface in horrifying ways. Sally soon finds herself an involuntary guest at Leatherface's home, and flees into the night to escape the demented cannibal and his loudly-buzzing chainsaw.
Based on the terrifying true story of Ed Gein. Directed by Tobe Hooper.
The original Texas Chain Saw is one of those horror movies that you have to see. It is a cult classic and you DON'T want to be the one person who hasn't seen it.
People will DEFINITELY give you "the stink eye".
Pick it up on DVD.
