    4.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly good. January 13, 2007
    Format:DVD
    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.

    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.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Texas Hold 'em...Then Kill 'em January 22, 2007
    Format:DVD
    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.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A true "Chainsaw" epic December 22, 2006
    By Devan
    Format:DVD
    First of all, anything that came after the 1974 classic should not fall into immediate comparison. I hate it when these Internet critics take the remake, the sequels or this recent endeavor of the 'Chainsaw' franchise and line it up toe-to-toe with Tobe Hooper's masterpiece. It can't be done.

    Having gotten that out of the way, I'll admit that I loved 'The Beginning' a lot more than the remake it is preceding. Afterall, everything they wanted to do in the remake is on full display here, and I can only point out one useless homage to the original that was probably intended for the remake itself (the heroine launching herself through a glass window to evade her maniacal captors). Aside from that, there is nothing about this film that I didn't like. In an hour and twenty minutes' time, I was put through the wringer and actually had to wipe my sweaty palms on the seat a few times because I was so caught up in the mayhem that unfolded, however unapologetically, in front of my eyes. Coming from me, that's a major compliment to how tense this particular installment was.

    'The Beginning' takes place a few years before the remake (I would say the original but this revisits the Hewitt family, not the Sawyer family) and for a series of movies that are infamous for portraying scream queens falling under the clutches of a chainsaw-wielding maniac, this particular movie wears a lot of ambitions on its sleeve, especially when it comes to examining the psychological and situational underpinnings of this family's sick behavior. Depending on your stomach, you will either grow to understand Leatherface's actions or even pity him altogether. 'The Beginning' elevates Leatherface (Thomas Hewitt) from mere slasher status to a tragic character of, dare I say it, Greek proportions.
