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.

I was a bit sceptical going to a theater to watch "TCM: the Beginning". What can they possibly do to surprise me or to shock me whatsoever? - I thought. - What haven't I seen already to be touched by this? Furthermore it's the good old Texas Massacre, it's been remade once - what can there be in the prequel that was not in the three year-old remake? This "wrong time, wrong place" kind of movies which once produced a very nice example with a perfect title "Wrong Turn" seemed to tumble down into a dull routine like a genre of teen-slasher movies did a couple of years back. But... not yet. This one haven't tumbled.

Two brothers with their girfriends hit a cow making a total mess on a rural road in Texas. Sheriff arrives and soon we get to know he's not an ordinary sheriff. When he takes them to his isolated house you know already a REAL mess is about to happen. Yes, many wanted to know how Leatherface became what he's infamous for. And that's not the main interest of the film although we are told the whole story in the first 10 minutes. Surprisingly R. Lee Ermey's sheriff Hoyt steals the show here, making even Leatherface look like an innocent boy, and showing himself at his insane, maniacal best. So, like stepfather, like stepson...

What "TCM: the beginning" offers us after the four friends get into the house, is a true nightmare. You haven't seen anything like this neither in previous TCM nor in other films alike. I won't even mention the quantity of gore and all the physiological details of what's happening, but emotionally this movie just leaves you speachless. It's so dark, relentless and morally exhausting you won't believe it. It's intense to the extent I wanted to yell at times: Stop it! That's enough!

I am sick of hearing the complaints and negative response from those who either worship the orginal and will never allow any other form of the story of Thomas Brown Hewit to be told and i am sick of those who hate remakes and preqeuals complaining about a movie simply due to the notion that it is a remake.

I am a horror fan, i don't accept nor love every movie that is horror but i do embrace the changing face of horror. It is is not the 1970's anymore and some of you need to deal with this. In every genre of film-making things are a changing. The style of film made these days is different to the 1970's as was 1970's film-making different to the 1960's.

Things progress and evolve and I for one am delighted that after 20 years of the orginal the concept of TCM is even still around. Be grateful for the fact that you are even getting a second run of these films after some dreadful 80's and 90's sequeals to the orginal. TCM part 4 would have to be the worst film ever - Thomas was reduced to a transexual of the highest camp - pure stupidy.

So here are producers and directors who are at least producing some horror films and further enhancing the surreal story of the Hewit family with some hardcore gore and a very contempory film-making concept and you guys still have to complain.

You know those who say Rod Zombie got the 70's style in The Devils Reject (another terrfic film) and that TCM: The Beginning didn't are fooling themselves. Film style gives away in both film that it is not 1970's film making and guess what - IT'S NOT THE 1970'S ANYMORE. I like the 1970's slasher myself but gee guys - time has moved on.

Wow this remake to me was miles ahead of the original movie. What a hard edge nail biting seat of your pants wild roll-a-coaster movie. Love the characters and the incredible origin story. This movie just rocks. If you love dirty visceral hard edge SAW type movies, here's your sign. Here's an extra bonus R.Lee Ermy as Charley Hewitt now Sheriff Hoyt. Kick Ass. After watching all the Texas Chainsaw movies, this one is by far my favorite.

I'm going to be honest, out of all the modern slashers I have seen, this one is my favorite. First off, I love the time period and setting. The Vietnam Era adds an interesting feel to the world. Secondly, I actually liked the characters in this movie, I can't entirely explain why, but I thought they were better than your standard slasher cast. And finally, the action, gore and plot line is fairly good for a prequel. Say what you want about this movie, but I genuinely enjoyed it.

i honestly enjoyed this. to me anything with R. Lee Ermey shines and believe me folks, not only does HE shines, but his spit does too. what nobody understands and i will never understand this is quite easily : ths IS the prequel to the remake and yes the remake with R. Lee Ermey. my reviews and how i do them are different. i refuse to say that much, because the wrong choice for words could just give it all away. BUT, check them both out. they are honestly pretty darn good.
