Why the Texas Chainsaw Massacre is Underrated

Why the Texas Chainsaw Massacre is UnderratedThere were 7 Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies released since the first one in 1974. Perhaps, you have only lived to see the Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D in 2013, The Texas Chainsaw Massage: The Beginning in 2006, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 2003. Undoubtedly, the 2013 film was the worst of all. The actors had lacklustre performances and it also did not live up to the standards. It was also deemed as a lazy film with a very long storyline and less action (which is what this franchise is known for).

The 2003 film might have been a better version as they have tried to up the level of violence. The set pieces were also believable and scary as hell and the chainsaws were exactly like the ones you’ll see here. The problem though is that aside from the few screams that you will have watching the film, there is pretty much nothing in it that goes deep. Of all the remakes, the 2006 film was perhaps the best. Of course, it tackled a different story as it was a prequel. The best part of this remake was the cast. Unlike the other films, there were less screams and stupid decisions, but more of a realistic portrayal of what actual characters would have done in the said situation.

The Original Film

This leads us to the original 1974 thriller, which obviously was the most underrated film of them all. Nothing can beat the level of violence and thrill that the original film has brought. The scenes were extremely realistic and were definitely too close for comfort.

The nightmarish scenarios showing the deaths of various characters in the film will surely lead you sleepless for days. This film is now a classic and definitely deserves the award as one of the best horror films of all time, if there’s an award for one. It seems like no other recent film has gone as close to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre in portraying the horror scenes. The characters were extremely fearless and the cinematography was just brilliant.

Due to these films, the chainsaw has already become a symbol of fear especially among kids. The truth is that chainsaws are extremely useful for people who live in rural areas.
