I saw it last night... I thought it was alright, very similar to the remake of the origional that came out a few years ago though. It was definately more gory than scary, though a few parts got me to jump. I think it would have been better if they went more into "Letherface" more, instead of making him a secondary character. Thats what I was expecting from a prequal. For example, it wasn't explained why he had to cover up his face. I just think they made it too much like the previous movie, and didn't foccus on Letherface enough.
Are you kidding?! Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the best horror classic movie EVER! The cinematography and acting is top notch. A better script I have never seen. The sets, special FX and soundtrack are better than Starwars.
What the heck is this topic about- the remake? I haven't seen it. And I don't want to. I mean, I had decided I'd had enough remakes when I saw 3- The Haunting '99, House on Haunted Hill '99 and Thirteen Ghosts '01. Neither of them was good enough to bother with. I've only ever seen one good remake in my entire life- David Cronenberg's The Fly.
And if we're talking about Tobe Hooper's original, it's one of the greatest post-1967 horror movies ever made, period.
