Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The (DVD)

After a dozen graves are desecrated in rural Texas, five young people in their 20s (Jessica Biel - Blade: Trinity; Jonathan Tucker - The Deep End; Eric Balfour - "Six Feet Under," "24"; Erica Leerhsen - "The Guardian"; and Mike Vogel - "Grounded for Life") investigate and find themselves stalked by a family of cannibals led by Leatherface, a towering and insane brute dressed in human skins. Remake of the 1974 horror classic.

Just when you thought the original was disturbing, gross, disgusting, and frightening, now comes the updated version, "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," which knows no limits when it comes to gore and intensely terrifying moments. Is it a remake? Not necessarily. However, it is more like a movie that pays tribute to a great classic by offering its own vision of a well-known nightmare of limbs and guts.
While characters and some of the story has changed, the deranged and murderous plot remains the same. An unspeakable turn of events (I will not give away how it all starts, as it is very different from the original) lands a group of teens in a nightmarish maze that throws a mutilated man who wields a giant chainsaw in their path. Not to mention the "crazy" family that turns out to be just as vicious and murderous. For these teens, a safe place is nowhere in their short and painful future.
As I said in the beginning, this is not a remake. Nor is this a sequel. So what is it? Well, I like to think of it as an "updated" version of the original--in fact, I consider it more of a tribute to the classic that redefined the horror genera as we know it. This movie, while much more darker, sinister, and sicker, is not trying to live up to the original, nor is it trying to outdo it. I had to smile, as this was not a step-by-step remake, such as the newer "Psycho" was. There are new elements, characters, and plot twists thrown into the mix. And to be honest... it works.
I must confess, I had an unquestionably hard time trying to watch this movie. There were a bunch of moments that made me want to shut it off, and yet--I continued to watch the debauchery.

I mean REALLY. These days, there aren't a whole lot of movies that impress me. I loved this one. I have pondered many things concerning the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and now I have an answer.
The people who voice their opinions on this movie can probably be classified into two groups: Those who love it and those who hate it. Since there aren't a whole lot of people who tout the "meh, it was okay" view, I think we can safely assume that bad or good, this movie is definately a benchmark in movie history. Just like everyone else in the world, my opinion is not without bias, but I'm confident that the assertion I'm about to make is solid and reasonable:
This movie is unbelievable. It's almost an insult to call this a "remake" of the original TCM, because it is incredibly innovative. It's a different story, different cast, and a different kind of drive than that of the first. It's more raw, more terrifying, and it never lets up throughout the entire film.
First things first: Jessica Biel. I don't care what other projects she's participated in before. She did an amazing job in this film. Let me take that a step further and say that EVERYone in this movie put forth a wonderful effort. The acting is natural and realistic; these actors make you believe that this really did and could happen. From what I know, there was a deep concern that the movie would be nothing more than a showcase of Jessica's clevage. But this is not the case. Although she is definitely an attractive woman, I'm afraid your mind won't be able to concentrate on the curves. She plays a character who quickly figures out exactly how much trouble she and her friends are in, and she forces herself and her companions to face this horror and survive.

I had to wonder, initially, why anyone would go through the trouble of remaking a "classic" that already had numerous sequels to begin with. I came into it with "low expectations," in other words. But I must say that after watching it a couple times, I'm not disappointed with the effort.

The only reason for knocking it down to 4 stars is the clumsy framing device. It strives for the same sort of verisimilitude that the original had. Grainy archive footage of some State Investigators going down into the basement of the house of notoriety, filming the grisly scene. It's obviously not original stock footage, but just some attempted levity on the part of the filmmakers. It doesn't work. Yes, we all know that the original film was based on a true story, at least loosely. The actual dude who was the mass killer lived in Wisconsin, not Texas, but that's beside the point.

What this remake does deliver on is "fear factor" moments. The actors portraying the crazies really do sell their insanity, particularly in the "trailer trash" scene. The over the top Sherrif (fans of Full Metal Jacket will recognize Mr Psycho Drill Sargeant) is also very effective. If you have a good sound system hooked up to your DVD player, the soundtrack and sound effects alone will put you into mild seizure. That's something the original Hooper DVD can't deliver. Chainsaw noises will haunt your consciousness for at least a day or two!

I also like the way the production team depicted the Chainsaw guy. The quick cuts never give us a clear picture of the face. He's quicker than the original Leatherface. Moves like a cat. He's also not depicted as a totally brain dead avenger of Satan. Just a boy who had problems adjusting in grade school, I guess. "Vengence is Mine," sayeth the Leathered One!

1st things 1st: My Bloody Valentine 3D was just dreadful. If we're talking plot, it's plot was very predictable. If we're talking horror, I don't see it. TCM'03 was light years better than MBV3D. BTW, the original My Bloody Valentine uncut is on my top 10 list.

I was wondering the same thing, since I actually like the prequel better than the remake.
