But when the young people realize that the individual is behaving disturbingly and threateningly, they end up getting rid of him.

“AN AMERICAN EXPERIMENT IN CHAOS”:TOBE HOOPER ’S CHAINSAW MASSACRE BY JEAN-BAPTISTE THORET
“To see a Tobe Hooper film is to agree to delve in an extreme way into the blind spots of our time, and sometimes of our childhood, and to learn that everything we bury always ends up resurfacing. » - Jean-Baptiste Thoret
Through a prodigiously rich and in-depth analysis, bringing together critical study, sociological reflection on America in the 1970s, testimonies from the filming and annexes focusing on film censorship in France, this work recounts the genesis of Tobe's legendary film Hooper, sheds light on its roots and meticulously delves into its different themes. A revised and expanded edition, accompanied by archive photos.
