The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.


One of thee most chilling scenes put on film.

I get yearnings inside me to watch this a few times a year.

Sir Romero is my favorite director and NOTLD68 my favorite film. Dawn is good. TMC gives me feelings that I like.

Fuck! Look at him convulsing.. Image

Texas Chainsaw Massacre by a mile. Not that I’m partial or anything ;) TCM made such an impact on me the first time I watched it as a kid that is still with me. Something so visceral and gritty. And a very memorable villain.

Like Wonderlust pointed out with the Kirk’s death, it just imprints on you.

I understand all the TCM love, but I'm still going with Dawn.

TCM gets the title as my favorite slasher. Leatherface is an icon.

TCM and it's not really close. Works as horror, commentary, intriguing concept/story that if half-baked the execution of it certainly isn't. One of the few that transcends just being a movie due to how it was filmed, where, and obviously the circumstances on set. Was a big influence on Refn so naturally I think it's pretty hot shit.

Look, opinions respected... but to say it's not even close? Put the crack pipe down.

Put me down for Texas chainsaw Massacre.

I lived in the South for several years so crazy rednecks always have a charm I personally enjoy, and the movie is deeply disturbing and still contains one the best fictional displays of complete and utter hysteria out there.

And I never was the biggest zombie fan. I like em but I prefer many sub genre's over Zombies.

As great as Dawn is and both films accomplished alot it's definitely Texas Chainsaw Massacre for me as it's my favorite film alongside Halloween that I have watched countless times.

TCM is one of the super rare films where all the stars aligned as the landscape, locations, sun, horizon and just everything is perfect to effortlessly blend gritty realism with a surreal nightmare. Hooper and the crew were destined to be there at that time to make that film for us.

If I also had to choose which film out of the 2 would most likely scare someone I'd always go with TCM.
