Back to The Most Banned Horror Movies in History
'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' (1974)
The landmark slasher film about a demented cannibalistic family that picks off young friends traveling through the Texas landscape actually features very little on-screen gore. Most of the violence involving mallets, meathooks and chainsaws is left to the imagination.
