31 Days of Horror - Day 9 (THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE - 1974; 2003)

Marilyn Burns!

Chainsaw Dance(1974 version) A group of teenagers on the road in Texas stop off at the wrong farm and encounter a family gone awry. Once abattoir workers, the decay of the Southern rural economy has left them unemployed, and the directionless father and sons take to using their butchering skills on passing people. One by one, the kids encounter members of the grisly family. Tobe Hooper makes a truly creepy and horror film that will have you on edge. Marilyn Burns goes through hell for the final 30 minutes as she tries to survive the night face to face with Leatherface, the chainsaw wielding maniac. Classic horror gore.

(2003 version) A tale of five 20-somethings whose free spirited road trip becomes a terrifying descent into madness. When they find themselves isolated in a rural Texas community, they fall into the clutches of a mo... read more nstrous clan of Texas cannibals and find themselves being whittled away by the chainsaw-wielding Leather face. The remake is surprisingly good. And really gory. This time Jessica Biel gets put through the wringer as she tries to survive a night in hell with Leatherface and his demented family including a sadistic R. Lee Ermey as the town sheriff.
