Old Man: "Look what your brother did to the door!". This movie made me feel dirty and unclean deep inside of me, which is what the movie is about. A gruesome look at the dark side of the world. The movie does hold anything back it just goes for it, making this movie a gritty horror flick with strong and hard to watch gore scenes.

The movie that made a town come to life or death rather. Lower budget but instant classic. A must for horror lovers, this is a older movie so the young may find it boring, and if so the remakes will be better for you.

The original. What can be done with a limited budget and a talented filmmaker. Not a gorefest, but plenty unsettling..

Here's the explanation of the rating: Texas Chainsaw Massacre is undeniably a masterfully made horror film. It implies more than it shows and its low-budget, documentary-style filmmaking style creates a genuinely unsettling and often horrifying film. Since this is my personal rating, however, I didn't find anything to take away from the film and found it to be a depressing and bleak portrait of hopelessness.

A flat out classic. One of the greatest low-budget horror films ever made. It's also one of the scariest.

Made out to be a gorefest, it shows half the violence in JAWS. But that don't think that takes away from the movie. Its one of the most shocking and disturbing films you'll EVER see in your life.

Simply a classic. Gunnar Hanson possibly being the only true 'leatherface' out there. None of the newer hacks can do it like Gunnar. Inspired by the brutal man Ed Gein, this film is about a deminted man, with an even more deminted family, sawing up the innocent who travel through their life. A horror classic indeed.

Does anyone else but me find this strange: that a girl would scream over scenes from The Exorcist, but not show the slightest hint of fright from watching this film?? Well this girl was my friend.I guess it must of been because of how stupid those teenagers in the movie really were. Come on, if you're going to make a horror movie its gotta at least be realistic, not make these teenagers do things that would never be done in reality, just to make the story line work. The one aspect I liked of this movie is that Jessica Biel.

One of my personal favorite horror films, The Texas Chainsaw Masscre isn't the bloodiest or the scariest or the best - but it has that atmosphere - the low-budget helps, not hinders, this movie. It just feels right.
