I saw the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre for the first time the other night. It was quite disturbing in a way I didn't expect it to be.

Yeah its mostly in the mind, very well shot, not as explicit as you'd expect but that's always worse.

I sort of prefer that in my horror films (like the shower seen in Psycho). With many of these 'slasher' films there seems to be a competition between film makers to find the most bizarre ways of killing people and throwing in loads of blood and gore which, in my opinion, desensitizes oneself to this whole genre. (I was bored of them after Friday 13th part 3.)

One of the scariest films that I saw was "The Changeling" with Edward Woodward (not the Angelina Jolie one) which relied totally on atmosphere and story rather than violence; and for sheer uncomfortable and scary viewing, "The Exorcist". :D
The difference between fiction and reality? Fiction has to make sense.

I remember that was really good, now do I just continue with memories or risk watching it now to find out it hasn't aged well and my memories are ruined :roll:
One of those? Oh I'm sure I have one somewhere..

I recently watched the one with Eddie Izzard in on YouTube. I think I prefer the 1980s one. It's a lot closer to the book. I've read the book lots of times and it is one of my favourites. I'm fond of end of the world type books. :D
