4.0 out of 5 stars "You're all going to die..." March 30, 2004
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Horror Flick June 13, 2005
Format:DVD
First of all, shockingly enough, this film has is not the same as the original. Stop the presses! It's changed. They have better use of color and cameras, that must mean it's "hollywood-ized". Well, get over it. You can't live in the past. Just because a movie has new camera techniques or make up artists, doesn't mean it sucks. People who think that are ridiculous.

The film opens up with 4 young adults going cross country after picking up some drugs. They are driving along, minding their own business, when they pick up a girl walking down a desolate road. They pick her up and make sure she's alright, which of course she isn't because she's gone through what they are about to experience. She tells them bits and pieces of her story, which make no sense, and then suddenly kills herself. The 4 of them freak out and pull over to the nearest gas station to get some help.

Throughout the movie you are hoping that someone one is going to survive, but you don't know how anyone can possibly get through this. One by one the lead female watches as her friends are massacred. She's the heroine in this film, so she does try to save them to a certain extent, but when you are in this situation you're mind doesn't think. Instinct takes over and all you care about is surviving. To see who lives and dies in the movie, you're going to have to watch it, because I don't want to tell you that everybody dies.

This film is one of the best horror films I've seen. I've watched the original, and I actually prefer this one. While there was some gore, it's not an extreme amount, which I'm okay with; the story is supposed to be more disturbing than bloody. It's about being put in that situation and doing something about it. Jessica Beil's performance was flawless. To think she came from 7th Heaven is pretty amusing, she's got a future in her acting career. All in all, definitely rent it if you haven't already.

4.0 out of 5 stars As Remakes Go, This One Aint Half Bad March 26, 2005
Format:DVD
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!
