The Saw is Family "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" Mens and Womens Movie T-Shirt


In 1974 the classic slasher franchise, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, was unleashed in all its gory glory! Originally marketed as a "true story" the film drew a massive audience.

Of course, the story was all but real, though many details of the crimes portrayed on its reels were based on the real life serial killer Ed Gein. The film follows the misfortunes of a group of teenagers who are attacked on their way to a family homestead by Leatherface, portrayed by Gunnar hansen, and his cannibal family. Faced with a limited budget, Tobe Hooper was forced to work long hours for seven days a week to finish the film and pay less for equipment rentals, but even after the film was complete--another challenge had to be hurdled.

The film as deemed too violent by many distributors and despite shooting for a PG rating the MPAA slapped it with an R and a number of countries banned it immediately. When all was said and done, the film was incredibly profitable and established many conventions for the slasher genre with the use of a chainsaw as a primary weapon and the faceless, monstrous antagonist.

The misleading tagline, "the film you are about to see is true", was intended by Hooper as a criticism of the changing political climate at the time; in particular the Watergate Scandal and the unsentimental brutality of the film echoed the death tolls, and gruesome reports of the Vietnam War.

Regardless of its political trappings, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre changed the cinematic landscape and Leatherface holds a cultural standing with Jason Voorhees and Freddy Krueger--and it opened doors for later horror movies like Sam Raimi's The Evil Dead and Halloween by John Carpenter--and earned Hooper a place among Wes Craven and George Romero.
