Review by Chucky
This is a gritty, raw, unrelenting movie which almost makes you feel like what you're watching is real. From the moment you first meet Leatherface there is a feeling of dread, which just grows and grows throughout the rest of the movie all the way up until the final scene. The acting is quite amateruish but that only helps to sell the realistic touch that the film is trying to portray. I also really enjoy the rural location as it is very similar to the farm location that I spent my entire childhood growing up on.
There are not many films out there similar to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and any that has tried to use the same formula has not been able to capture the same disturbing aura that this film contains.
