If you’re a fan of horror movies, you’ve probably seen The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (TCM). It’s one of the original slasher films and was released in 1974, so it’s been around for an awfully long time.
The film tells the story of five friends who visit their grandfather’s house outside of town. While there, they discover that he’s running a slaughterhouse where he kills people and makes them into meat to sell on his truck. The friends are captured by Leatherface (the chainsaw-wielding villain) and forced to face off against other family members who have turned into demented cannibals after being exposed to toxic waste during World War II.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a 1974 horror movie that takes place in rural Texas. The story follows a group of friends who find themselves in a remote town filled with killers after they pick up a stranger on the side of the road. The stranger, who claims to have been stranded, leads them to his house where he proceeds to murder them one by one.
This film was directed by Tobe Hooper and written by Kim Henkel. It starred Marilyn Burns as Sally Hardesty and Gunnar Hansen as Leatherface (aka “Leatherface”). This movie has become an iconic part of pop culture over the years and has spawned several sequels and remakes under its belt!

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a great horror flick to start off the new year. It has everything: suspense, twists and turns, blood, gore and more!
There are many people who are afraid of clowns and chainsaws but this movie will make you scream in fear at both of them. The first time I saw this movie was when I was around 12 years old and it terrified me so much that even today, I cannot watch it alone or in the dark! I do remember being able to sleep with my lights on for weeks after watching it though! That’s how good this movie is – even after first seeing it over 20 years ago – still haunts me today!!
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a great movie for horror fans to start off the new year with. I hope you get as much enjoyment out of it as I did and that you also want to see other classic slasher films like Jason Lives: Friday the 13th Part VI. Before you go, remember that there are many different ways to enjoy watching movies – whether it’s at home or in theaters – but either way this movie will definitely leave an impression on you.
