The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning - 1 out of 5

Supposedly, this film was the origin story of the murderous Hewitt family but it felt more like a remake of the remake that came out three years prior to this one. Nearly every element of the story is exactly the same except for a few quick answers as to why the family became cannibals, how Leatherface got his mask, why he prefers a chainsaw and how R. Lee Ermey's character became a Sheriff despite being apart of a criminal, cannibalistic family. Other than these few elements (and they come quick) the movie is just a rehash of what we've already seen. The film tries to be shocking with some disturbing images but it's clear, after watching this, that the scenes of torture and shock were there merely to cover up the weak story.

  1. In the 2003 movie, it's not even hinted that they're cannibals. If anything, it just showed that Leatherface liked to play with the dead bodies, and wear their skin.

    And if anyone else claims that Leatherface is "real" is getting kicked in the testicles/ovaries.

  2. Yeah, the 2003 movie is pretty bad. I think my review is up on this blog.
