Images: Death In 16mm-The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The images appear as if renderings from the minds eye; memories trying to catch up with the will to remember. THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE opens with the literary power of "the subtle-creaking door". The viewer knows something is coming, but is given only fragments of what that is. However, unlike its prose counterpart, these images are far from conventional. Beauty in death. Disturbing, yes. Branded upon the retina of the physical and meta-physical....The flash bulbs ignite when cued by the closing of your eyes.
