    ★★★½

    The film instantly gets you interested with the opening music and an eye-catching visual and directing style. Characters and the actors playing them are all memorable and intriguing. I'm not a huge fan of Bruce Willis, but he's really at his best here, even if there are too many scenes of him drooling.

    Minor spoiler about the ending scene below


    This legendary 1974 slasher film is just as good as I thought it would be. The tension is built with clever directing, creepy set designs, minimalistic industrial sounds and fantastic cinematography. Tobe Hooper makes the absolute most out of the low budget and manages to nake the film feel dirty and grotesque without relying on gore and violence. The gritty atmosphere is just incredible and evokes a sense of dread right after the…
