Texas Chain Saw Massacre The Shocking Truth: Essential viewing for fans
16 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

The final notable Texas Chainsaw Massacre documentary is by far the best. Mostly about the original movie it also dips its feet into the rest of the franchise and the legacy it has created.

With in depth interviews with all the stars, some gruelling backstage stories and further confirmation of what a complete tool Matthew McConaughey is.

I would have to say this is essential viewing for fans of the franchise, I not even being one still thought it was an entertaining piece but am glad to see the end of my TCM binge.

The Good:

Very thorough

The Bad:

Narration is awful

I simply don't see the appeal

Things I Learnt From This Documentary:

Taxidermy....armadillo...really!?

Hanging a person on a meathook rarely passes as PG

27hr working days are a thing

Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) sounds like worst movie set ever

The cast and crew of Texas Chainsaw Massacre got f'd in the a financially

The mafia are bad people to go into business with, who knew!?
