Many people wrongly attribute the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre as one of the slasher genre's bastions and progenitors. Even though the title suggests otherwise, it is not a film fueled by cheap violence and gore, or immediate scare-tactics and jumpscares. It's rather a pretty brilliant examination of the dark side and primal urges of human nature, and about those that cannot fight that urge for reasons of their own.
Incredibly striking and modern, visceral and real. Some of the creepiest and most deeply unsettling visuals ever put on screen, and oddly enough, darkly comical. A quite bizarre film that despite it being grounded in the exploitation-esque, grindhouse style, is actually very artfully done, subtle and intelligent.
