19. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). Tobe Hooper’s legendary film “inspired by true events” (not even close) isn’t actually all that gory or violent, at least in terms of what is shown on screen. It feels like pretty standard fare at first—young people act stupidly on a road trip in deep Texas, bad things happen—but quickly goes off the rails. It’s wild, unpredictable, and feels like a survival experience, not entertainment.
