The Temperature’s Rising:
Sally (Marilyn Burns) and her friends were just going to pay their respects to her grandfather’s grave in a remote part of Texas when they stumbled across the Sawyer family home and, er, got massacred.
The film’s atmosphere of oppressive heat is authentic enough – the film crew were working temperatures of up to 43°C for much of the shoot, and since they didn’t have multiple versions of the costumes, the cast had to put their sweaty clothes back on day after day. Urgh.
Just remembering the sound of the saw makes us break out in a cold sweat.
