Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: August 18, 1973. News of a bizarre, chainsaw wielding family - reports which were to ignite the world's imagination - began to filter out of central Texas.

brilliant sick & twisted
1 March 2002 | by (COPENHAGEN) – See all my reviews

I can't believe this is rated as a bad film by so many. It is one of my favorites. It's pretty twisted and sick in a realistic way. Indeed it's not like the other TCMs but it's the same plot line , but completely different in a way. Mr. McConaughey has a great role and is acting like never before. Try seeing the movie and finding the good qualities instead of searching for whats bad about it like everyone else does. The psycholigy is brilliant. A must see for all !
