I was in my pre-teens before I finally saw this movie and it was before I even knew who director Tobe Hooper was. This was probably the second film of his that I saw at that point in my life. I know I had already seen Poltergeist, but I didn’t even see The Texas Chainsaw Massacre until I was 14 or 15.
Well, I recently revisited the film and this thing was crazier than I remembered! It was a very surreal and cool movie and I really dug the visual effects, especially for the time that the film was made.
