31 scary movie moments - 18) The dinner party in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

By the time we reach the infamous dinner party sequence in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, we’re terrorised already. And then this happens. It’s savage, it’s horrible, it’s OTT and it’s bloody, bloody brilliant. 77 more words
