"You know what I think? I think he's a phony." Probably the closest HGL got to commentary. Closest though, does not mean close. The moments of nothing happening at all are needed for when the cheap gore effects take precedent. An illusory film. Maybe I 'am' dreaming in my house... 6/10
Still delivers a combat laugh after 7th times seen! A very very good line that ever happened in early 70's splatter fest, who can forget line like this "Sarcastic broad you got that Jack/That's my girl! (tapping TV)", what a glorious silly line, and electric chainsaw was probably the first ever electric chainsaw that had in any horror film (sometimes, portable chainsaw sucks though). True classic gem!
