First Off Let Me Say That I Hate The Fact That Hollywood Has Ran Out Of Ideas And Pretty Much Destroyed Every Horror Classic.But I Have To Say They Did Really Well On This One. This Movie Had A Very Different Concept And Was A Great Creative Spin On The Franchise.It Starts Off By Telling What Happened After Sally Hardesty Escaped In The Original Classic. The Story Is Inspired From Those Events.It Has A Good Story And Alot Of Blood And Guts Which Compliments The TCM Franchise.The Kill Scenes in This Movie Was A Bit Of A Letdown. They Definately Could All Have Been Drawn Out Alot More And Some Creativity Added To Them.The Original Classic Had A Gripping Psychological Impact On You Which All The Remakes Lack Entirely.With All That Said It's Definately A Really Good Movie And Worth Going To See, Just Dont Waste Your Money On 3D Cuz The Effects Was Pathetic.

This movie was so bad that I laughed for 10 minutes during it because it was so stupid. The acting was terrible and so was the plot and to make things worse its only in 3D so you have to pay more to watch this garbage.

To many inconsistencies, like who was that dead woman in the house? What happened to the cop son at the end of movie? And why was that creep killer a victim? Movie all over the place.....hated it

I rate this a D. I like that it picks up where the original left off and brings us forward. Beyond that not a lot to cheer about. They story follows the typical formula of getting some attractive young people together and picking them off. The girls are HOT and the guys good looking but beyond that not much to see here. Some characters are here just to over-act it seems (The Mayor and one way too macho cop) Wait for Redbox and save yourself some money.

I wasn't expecting much going into the film, but the prologue was quite striking with it's 3D transfer of highlights from the 1974 original (sometimes I thought I was looking at original footage, sometimes modern reenactments--I wasn't really sure).There's an hour of pretty gory, lifeless storytelling about four people travelling to Newt, Texas to reclaim the legacy of the heroine, but the last hour is the stuff of cult movie legend. Some opportunities for spectacular 3D effects are missed, but overall, the 3D is pretty good and worth the extra cash. Overall, it's an inconsistent film of highs and lows: at it's worst, it's mind-numbingly dull; at it's best it's very everything you want from a horror film.
