"chainsaw is not just for wood"

Leatherface is a fictional character in the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies. One of the first slasher film villains, he has appeared in all six of the series' films since the release of the original in 1974. The character wears masks made of human skin, a practice which led to his name, and is a cannibal.

Leatherface is portrayed as "severely mentally retarded and mentally disturbed," and often uses a chainsaw and sledgehammer to slaughter his victims. He lives with a family of mentally disturbed fellow cannibals, who are often abusive and violent towards him. The character was inspired in part by notorious serial killer Ed Gein, who also wore the skin of his victims

i like this film...though it made me really tired after watching the's like i can feel the torture and pain... the character's face didn't scare me and i find it very funny... but imagining that he's wearing his victim's that's gory! i hate his relatives... they are all mentally illed especially the one pretending to be the policeman. Is it really a true to life story? my gosh, i couldn't imagine it to be real!

Hostel is one another gory, horrifying film, as well but nothing beats the chainsaw massacre... wow, i like your site...really! please post about resident evil... because i love that film too... (is it considered under this category?)
