5.0 out of 5 stars The scariest horror film ever?, 16 Sep 2001
This review is from: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre [DVD] [1999] (DVD)
At last we in the UK get a chance to find out what all the fuss over this film has been about, and just for once I can understand why the censors had trouble with it (although I still think there must be better ways of dealing with controversial films than banning them). It's not especially gory, the chills come mainly from the almost documentary-style way the story is presented, but the feeling of dread that runs throughout the film never lets up for a second, so the viewer has no opportunity to step back from the film and relax, which you do need to do occaisionally. Therefore I cannot recommend this film to anybody new to watching horror, but to the more experienced viewer it is still a must-see, even after 25 years.
