Son of 31 Nights, 31 Frights: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'

Director Tobe Hooper was inspired by both a hardware store and a famous serial killer when he wrote what would become The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Filmed on a shoestring budget under an unforgiving Texas sun that overexposed most of the film, the end product is a film with a tone that looks and feels so raw and real that it has caused nightmares for nearly four decades now.
