The Texas Chain Saw Massacre


Finally, after 25 years, the cult horror classic makes it onto SA screens. The film set record levels for terror and gore. Basically it is about a cannabalistic family who prey on travellers, attacking them with various tools to kill and chop them up, and then making a meal...
Not for the faint-hearted.

Robert Haynes: A true classic of the horror genre. An assault to the senses - totally... Not nearly as gruesome as some may expect - there is very little onscreen bloodshed - the terror is purely psychological which is far more horrifying than blood and gore galore. Do yourself a favour and see this movie only if you want - I repeat want to be scared s**tless.

Bridget Brown: Very poor - low budget - beware all video shop owners, take that movie off your racks, or rent it out for free.

Fabjen Salas: Extraordinary.

Andrew Simpson: Brutal and unrelentless horror. A true classic. One of the scariest films ever.

Carol Catlow: Brilliant!

Aaron Gribbins: This movie was the bomb.

Simon Hale: Good film!

Charlotte Fennings: Absolutely brilliant!!!
