1. THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE (1974)
This is the best…
It’s surprising how many people have not seen the film. But when you do, you will understand why other people pass on watching – This film is not for the faint at heart. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a film with a chaotic feeling about it. It’s satisfying chaos, though, not anxiety or fear of the unknown. People watching this together might feel like they’ve gone too far to be able to stop the bloodshed and madness.
Exposing dark realities of human slavery, TCM is a nostalgic piece of horror with thrilling cinematography and creative, often understated violence. The film is now just as gripping–if not more–than it was when the first time it was released.
2. THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 (1986)
A decade after the first film, Texas Chainsaw became a franchise with the second one also coming from its original maker, Tobe Hooper. The family encounters a radio DJ and a chainsaw-wielding law enforcement officer with a vendetta in this story. One of the wildest death scenes ever in the franchise starts in Texas 2. The movie includes bloody violence, dark humor, and dark rides. Pure, nutty enjoyment! It’s endlessly fun.
3. TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (2022)
David Blue Garcia tried to make a “Chainsaw” movie, but somehow the story ended up setting it in the movies that came before instead of the sequels. The movie didn’t work, it’s largely because none of them happened in his continuity.
This ghost town is actually a whole town instead of a house! As the story unfolds further you’ll find that A Chance Encounter Gone Wrong had been waiting in the wings to go all out. The cast of characters will keep you captivated even while they escalate their conflict more and more. There’s a hint of a redneck serial killer in there, but also some classic 50s horror. The show embraces its own uniqueness, and it’s pretty damn fun to watch.
4. TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D (2013)
The sequel to the franchise’s first attempt at a remake casts Leatherface in a new light: he’s actually the lone survivor of a fallen family, locked away by his own well-meaning relatives who also leave them her mansion. Not to mention the cast Alexandra Daddario in it.
The mansion is the backbone of the film’s story, and 3D relies on a set-up with “well-meaning youths encounter Leatherface” again to make for a refreshing take on the setup. The film ties together its story with a compelling and entertaining final act. It’s a respectful tribute to the original film in many ways, and it all makes for an exciting conclusion.
5. TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE NEXT GENERATION (1995)
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation is a sequel to the original film made by the directors who also co-wrote it. Its plot features Matthew McConaughey, and Renee Zellweher and will sometimes contain scenes that are worse than copy/paste errors.
The film builds on the familiar “family with a taste for human flesh” story, but really takes things to a whole new level by introducing several other elements. A fun and campy The Next Generation with a vicious twist of horror. A must-watch!
Everyone knows that there is no better time to watch a film than on Halloween. But if you’re looking for something new and different, check out David Gordon Green’s horror comedy in which Tye Sheridan stars as the young son of a widowed sheriff who falls in love with an unhinged teenager (played by Leatherface himself).
