I know Horror. I have been watching horror movies for nearly half a century, and I have a personal collection of over 1300 movies and growing; a third of those movies are horror. Movies from 1922 on up!

I grew up in the seventies and eighties. First watching all the classics such as Frankenstein, Dracula, The Wolfman, The invisible man, The Fly, The Mummy, The Creature from the Black Lagoon, etc. All the Vincent Price, Lon Chaney Sr., Jr., Christopher lee, and peter Cushing among others. I was there when all the 80's classics like Friday the 13th, Halloween, and Nightmare on elm street came out. The eighties gave birth to the slasher flick's and a plethora of gems like, Sleepaway camp, Basket Case, Mortuary, Evil Dead, Children of the Corn, Re-animator, Poltergeist, etc. In the 70's we had the original The Hills have eyes, I spit on your grave, and of course the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. All of these movies became classics and are considered the very best in the horror genre. However, let's be realistic. Those movies were great...at that point in time in history. Today, I can't bear to sit and watch many of them because compared to the movies made today, they seem lame. Let's face it, we have become desensitized; we need more and more violence and gore to grab our attention; and they rarely, if ever, scare us.

Many people disregard remakes because they find it offensive, and an insult to the original. I welcome them! If it can be done right then do it. However, Hollywood often, and more often than not, misses the mark. For instance, the omen, psycho, and the Friday the thirteenth remakes SUCKED! This was not the case, in my opinion, with the Hills Have Eyes ( my third favorite movie ever).

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre the Beginning was in one word...Brutal!.

Well, it's a generic horror film, of course. However, I was pleasantly surprised at how unpredictable the plot is. It doesn't follow that sort of formula where it's obvious what's going to happen and who's going to die. The flow of events is actually quite dynamic and interesting. This makes the movie much better than one might expect.

When you talk about the TV shows Desperate Housewives, 7th Heaven, CSI, The OC and even The Guiding Light wouldn't you think it strange to mention The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in the same breath? Similarly, when you say R. Lee Ermey you're usually not talking about 2003 and 2006's Texas Chainsaw Massacre films, right?

The main actors in both The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beinning (2006) were plucked right out TV. And R. Lee Ermey?...He starred in both Texas 2003 and 2006, but we all know what we really associate that guy with...the colorful Full Metal Jacket (1987) boot camp sergeant, of course.

Ah, and let's not forget the up and coming Jessica Beil (2006's The Illusionist); while the 2003 remake of Texas Chainsaw was one of her first big screen films, I expect that we'll see a lot more leading roles from this fine young talent in the future.

I was lucky enough to find a very inexpensive 2 pack on sale at Amazon for the price that just one of the disks is selling for today. Unfortunately, as of this writing I see that Amazon isn't offering the same deal, but the two pack is still available.

Enough trivia. About the movies.

Might as well start at The Beginning (2006). The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning was perhaps one of the top 5 most shockingly brutal movies that I have ever seen. Torture. Brutal murder. Intense violence. All acted out superbly by a cast that mostly made you believe that this horrible stuff was happening.

The Beginning was directed by short-resumed Horror vet Jonathan Liebesman, and he mostly kept it real. He made his actors take their rolls seriously, unlike so many Horror movies that throw in teenage camp to dumb down the shock.

Let me start off by saying that I have seen a many number of horror films over the last 8 years. When I mean many, I mean I have seen about 70% of all the horror movies made over the last 8 years. So when Texas Chainsaw Massacre The Beginning came out, I went and saw it in the movie theatre. AFTER ABOUT 10 MINUTES INTO THIS FILM, I COULD EASLY SAY THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR EVERYONE.

The people who made this film accomplished a very rare thing. THEY MANAGED TO CREATE THE MOST BRUTAL, GORY, RAW, AND VIOLENT FILM I HAVE EVER SEEN! There are probably some people who can't even sit through watching a film this violent. All of the camera, music, and photography work are nothing short of perfect when it comes to shooting violence and brutality. I really have never seen anything like it in all of my life. All of the violence seems to just jump right out at you while you're watching this film. EVERY SCENE THAT INVOLVES VIOLENCE IS SET UP TO BE HEARD AND SAW UP CLOSE AND PERSONAL.

I'm not saying this is a great horror movie because after seeing it I realized there can be too much violence and pain in a horror movie. Nowadays isn't that what some fans want though? Don't some fans want to be totally shocked and scared the hell out of when they watch a film? That is why I give this film 5 stars because it manages to show you the most violence and brutality that a horror film can have to offer at this point in time.
