Although this isn’t the most “socially redeeming” film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will have an emotional impact.
Through the use of sound, camera angles, editing, set design, and cinematography, you are transported to a hellish “reality.” (Why someone would want to experience this is a whole other topic in and of itself.)
Many people consider the Texas Chainsaw Massacre to be one of the most violent films of all time. Well, guess what…there is very little blood and guts. And you never see any of the “chainsaw” violence. Just like in Hitchcock’s famous Psycho, violence is implied through editing.
To call this movie “subtle” might seem misplaced, but that is the beauty of it. This subtleness is lost on most of today’s horror movie makers who opt for graphic violence for shock effects. And it’s the same for most of whom I call “hack salespeople.”
“Hack salespeople” beat you over the head to try to sell you their products. There is no subtleness to anything they do.
They’re still using arm-twisting closing techniques from the 1950s. They have their “rebuttals” lying in wait, ready to pounce and destroy their prospects’ objections. They use cringe-worthy canned phrases designed to manipulate and coerce people into buying.
Those people give selling a bad name and make many entrepreneurs believe that they don’t like selling or find it “beneath” them. But here’s the thing, my fine feathered friend:
Selling does not and should not be that way. And more importantly, learning how to sell is the single most important skill you can master, regardless of what you’re business is. When you learn to close more sales, you automatically give yourself a pay raise without increasing your expenses. Think about that for a minute.
Kick butt, make mucho DEEnero!

P.S. I’m doing a new online workshop in a couple of weeks where I’m giving everyone who attends my new 7-figure PowerPoint template and walking them through filling it out so they have a presentation that sells.
The cost? Zero.
The catch? There are only 150 spots available.
