From horror director Tobe Hooper came the cult classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a proto-slasher film featuring a dysfunctional family in the middle of nowhere. Banned in multiple countries the film faces consequences for its gritty violence.  Following five friends as they drive through rural Texas they accidentally stumble across the home of a family of maniac killers who decorate their home with human remains. One by one they are dispatched, mainly by the youngest son Leatherface, and Sally becomes the final victim, tied up and tortured for fun. The film uses a chaotic filming quality that gives it a more realistic feel, giving the violence a gut-punch.
