The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Review: Leatherface Gets Real on Netflix

Perhaps Halloween Ends this year, but The Texas Chainsaw Massacre seems to be starting again all over. It's been almost 50 years since the release of Tobe Hooper's original classic, an important touchstone in horror that sawed open and dissected (sometimes literally) American hippies, cults, and the nuclear family. The original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (as it was then clumsily titled) was a nihilistic cinematic explosion in 1974, years before Halloween, Friday the 13th, or any other massive horror franchise would be bloodily birthed into the pop culture lexicon with shrieks. As such, it essentially ties Black Christmas as the first true slasher film, even if its slashing was motor-powered.
