I watched the original in 1974 at the drive-in theater when I was only 16 and it scared the living crap out of me. To this day I still hate the sound of chainsaws! No, seriously, I do. I was anxious to see what they could do with this movie. I'll say this - never in a million years did I ever think I'd actually cheer for Leatherface, but I did. What kind of person does that make me? I actually felt a little sorry for him. Only a very, very little...but a little, nontheless. This movie gives you a bit of backstory on him. And I did like that it begins with shots from the original movie. It was really cool to see the cameo appearances by actors and actresses from the original movie. If you pay close attention, the original Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) is actually in this movie (minus the leather face). And the original surviving girl is also in it. AND Clint Eastwood's son, Scott, is in it, too. It was a good remake. The 3D was okay. It would've been just as good with or without it.

its always good to see another chapter in an iconic franchise, and even though we fans always hope that this one will be a triumphant return to the horror genre, we come to expect nothing more than the same'ole same'ole with only a few exciting twists here and there...that is what you get with this movie. its good to see it, but theres nothing great about it. the story twist is appreciated, but isnt delivered in the best way. it seems as though most of the audience was looking forward to seeing r&b singer, Trey Songz in his first major film debut...he did good i must say (i was surprised), but if eye candy is the major encouragement behind people coming to see your horror movie, im not sure if that is a great thing. hmmm

This Texas Chainsaw was okay but go on matinee time to save yourself from paying $13.50 the movie was only good towards the end. The Texas Chainsaw with Jessica Biel is the best one. If you are expecting alot from this one then dont go. overall i will give it an 4.5 out of 10.

The best part of the movie besides the cleavage shot ????? The ending and that is only because I didn't have to watch anymore of this terrible film. I don't know what planet these people are from that say it was good.

For all your Horror junkies out there, this is the movie for you. It has everything you need in a good bloody disaster. You have a group of people who go down to Dallas to check out this house that a late grandmother left her last remaining blood line. All things go wrong when a masked man has been hiding in the basement for all these years. You think you can run, but you will only get sliced up by leatherface! This movie is not for children, for there is too much blood and nudity. Keep them at home. For the rest of you, this was a fun flick so i encourage you to check it out. I could of done without the 3D but it wasn't too bad. Keep an eye out for the chainshaw been thrown at the cop, now that was fun! Don't read the reviews. This isn't oscar worthy, but you know what you are getting in a movie like this. Fun times.
