It's weird to think of a movie called The Texas Chainsaw Massacre being considered a classic piece of American cinema. The title prepares you for a sleazy bloodbath, but what it delivers is stunning cinematography, a nauseatingly effective score, nuanced relationships and character traits (I sort of love Franklin...), an emotionally complex villain and some very dark commentary on consumerism in America. Most importantly of all, it features an incredibly powerful performance by Marilyn Burns as my absolute favorite final girl, Sally. Get in touch!
