Here's a wild one I've waited til now to post, one of my very favorite seventies flicks! Tobe Hooper at his best!! The story's based on events of Texan Cannibal, Ed Gein, and goes like this... On the way to visit their grandfather's grave (which has been desecrated), five teenagers drive past a slaughterhouse and pick up a sinister looking hitch-hiker before ending up at the old family home where they're plunged into a never-ending nightmare! They meet a family of flesh eaters who use power tools to make up for what they lack in social skills...
What's extra cool is that there were no big named actors in the movie. It gives it a more realistic feel as the terror mounts, love this damn thing!
On the way to the cemetery, the teens pick up a grimy, freaky looking hitch-hiker. After the guy pulls out his knife and starts carving on his arm, they kick him out of the van...
But, they make a stop near an old house and go to the door, a very bad choice indeed!
Inside the place, the teens are shocked at what they see, like, this couch decorated with bones, possibly human!!
Then, the terror begins!!!..
Marilyn Burns plays Sally, she gets the special treatment at the dinner table. She's strapped to a human chair and gets to experience the insanity of the family first hand!
Here's a creepy portrait of gramps, truly a ghoul and a half!!
Back at the dinner table, gramps gets to suck on Sally's fingers!! I'm pretty sure this is referred to as good old southern, red state hospitality! Yee-haw, ya'll...
JFC dude!!.. All the teens are being horribly slaughtered and there isn't much they can do about it, the family is just too insane to deal with!
Leather Face is another iconic seventies maniac along with Michael Myers from HALLOWEEN. This guy is a truly terrifying figure!
But, throw in a chain saw and watch the Hell out, you'd better run like a freakin' jack wabbit! So, there you have it, we're back Wednesday with more mayhem, here, at The Dungeon!!
