The Best Little Massacre In Texas
Back in 1974, Tobe Hooper brought us the epitome of low budget indie filmmaking with 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.' Despite its title, it wasn't nearly the splatterfest one would expect and is the least violent of the franchise. Originally set out to be a PG-rated horror film, Tobe Hooper kept most of the graphic violence offscreen, which freaked out the censors so much that they slapped it with an X-rating and the film had to be edited down repeatedly just to get an R-rating. Hooper had turned horror on its head with a movie that felt grisly & brutal without being overly violent & gory and introduced us to one of the most iconic villains of all time - Leatherface!
