Tobe Hooper's THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (R, 1974, 83 min)

This is the original, extremely influential 1974 horror movie directed by Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist, Lifeforce). And it's blood-curdling scary too. Loosely based on the true crimes of Ed Gein, Massacre follows a group of teenagers who pick up a hitchhiker and wind up in a backwoods horror chamber where they're held captive, tortured, chopped up, and impaled on meat hooks by a demented cannabalistic family, including a character known as Leatherface who maniacally wields one helluva chainsaw.

John Carpenter's CHRISTINE (R, 1983, 110 min)

Hell hath no fury like a Fury scorned! She was born in Detroit on an automobile assembly line. But she is no ordinary automobile. Deep within her chassis lives an unholy presence. She is a red and white 1958 Plymouth Fury whose unique standard equipment includes an evil, indestructible vengeance that will destroy anyone in her way. She seduces 17-year-old Arnie Cunningham (Keith Gordon), who becomes consumed with passion for her sleek rounded chrome-laden body. She demands his complete and unquestioned devotion, and when outsiders seeek to interfere, they become the victims of Christine's horrifying wrath.
