The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
When a group of five young people invites a mentally confused hitchhiker at a gas station in the Texan hinterland to continue their journey in the car, they have no idea of the murderous nightmare that lies ahead of them. That's the story in short form. In 1974, director Tobe Hooper staged a horror film classic with an incredibly dense morbid atmosphere by means of extremely skilful use of the camera in perspective, fast cuts in combination with sounds and music, in which the actual horror takes place above all in the minds of the viewers, who have to follow the fate of the protagonists in the clutches of an uncivilized cannibal family half powerless in an armchair as if in a nightmare they had experienced themselves. Despite the reduced level of violence, he was banished to the index as one of the most disturbing films of all time.

The fact that the movie was based on a true event wasn't a matter of hair, but turned out to be a little marketing gag afterwards. Although the actions of the Wisconsin-based serial killer and grave desecrator Ed Gein influenced the film, it was also an inspiration for famous film characters such as Norman Bates (Psycho) or Buffalo Bill (The Silence of the Lambs). Nevertheless, one of the most popular figures and antiheroes of the slasher genre was born on screen: Leatherface. His passion is - and now everyone really has only one guess - of course the slightly alienated use of the chainsaw.

The original original title of the film: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - Blood Court in Texas.

Immediately after spraying on the chainsaw, the smell of petrol penetrates the air. Unleaded. Unhealthy. Exactly the substance that has been banned in the EU since 2000. Here he lives again, takes you on a journey through time, leaves you standing next to the petrol pump, the filler neck safely enclosed in his hand. Texas in the '70s. Hot wind runs through your hair, ruffles it, grains of sand maltreat your eyes. You turn your face away, protecting yourself. There's a van next to you with five kids. Ready to go. Looks like fun. Have a good time. What's the old geezer want in between? Never mind! I suppose they'll take it with them. Hairspray. You perceive hairspray, you see out of the corner of your eye long hair, tight jeans that slip sexily over imitation leather a few seconds later. The ignition starts, a door falls into the lock, wheels spin, burnt rubber, dark tracks on hot asphalt. Protecting your hand over your eyes, you follow the van until it's only a point on the flickering horizon, finally disappearing. A click tears you out of your thoughts. You reach for the nozzle, lead it back. Again this smell of petrol is in the air. At the cash desk you put the bills on the table, your eyes fall to the snack things and with a bag of almonds in your hand you leave the shop towards your candyappleroten Ford Mustang built in 1966. When you board the car you wonder if you don't hear the sound of a chainsaw far in the distance...

Chainsaw is olfactory all in all quite monothematic, but the structure reminds me of its synthetic-spicy "brother" Gasoline. Of course there are no big surprises and they are not wanted with this funny concept scent, but there are still some nuances to be noticed, especially in the first half hour. One simply smells the passion, this passion for the machine. Close your eyes and you'll hear the powerful sound, the sound when the oil drives the deafeningly rattling motor.

But there's another way, by the way. If you would like to be lulled acoustically into (temporary) sleep by a chainsaw, we recommend the CD of the Swedish Death Metal Supergroup Bloodbath with their final song "Chainsaw Lullaby", which will be released on October 26, 2018. Well, good night, Marie.

I thank Achilles for the test opportunity!
