With Thanksgiving right around the corner for those of us here in the States, it felt like the right time to revisit one of the most famous family dinners in cinematic history. Pull up a chair and dig in as we open up a case file on Leatherface from 1974’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

Topics include: the unimaginable circumstances this low-budget film was assembled under, the controversy it caused upon its release, how it’s able to trick you into thinking you saw something so much more graphic than what’s actually on screen, the aspects of this that none of the other entries in this franchise have been able to capture, where the series goes from here, and more!
