    TOO MUCH GORE??????

    Are you serious? this is Texas Chainsaw Massacare your watching... were you expecting a romantic comedy? i thought it was great how the BF was sawed apart while she was under him hiding... i wouldnt be scared of these movies A. i live in NJ B. i dont wonder around woods or the south. so unless a canibal family lives in Jersey then i wont worry too much about it... and this movie is a HUGE exageration on the life of Ed Gein. he did have a house of horror, but not as intense... but sick enough to make him into a celebrity. gore-tastic movies like these are great... more blood the better....

    Too much gore!

    This movie surprised me. I didn't expect so much blood and gore. It is just disgusting. Some scenes made me sick to my stomach. Literally! The other Texas Chainsaw Massacre installments weren't as gory as this one. I used to be a fan of slasher horror films when I was a teenager, but come on. Do horror movies really need to show so much gore? I have gotten to a point where I'm afraid to watch these new slasher horror flicks now. I still like to watch classic 80s horror flicks, because they are scary enough without so much blood and gore. Whenever I go to the movie store now, I read the back of the boxes to see what the content is. If the fine print says that the film contains scenes of gore or graphic violence, I won't rent it. This movie should not have even been rated R. It should have been rated NC-17 or higher. I don't recommend this film for anyone under the age of 18.

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

    The killer that Leatherface is based on is named Ed Gein and there are several movies about him. They get away with saying based on a true story by having some ties to this actual killer, but it is loosely based at best. Hanibal Lector (Silence of the Lambs) and Norman Bates (Psycho) are also based on him.

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

    This movie wasn't terrible, but very disappointing to say the least. I couldn't get over how little they did to make it different the the last. Granted they had to throw in a bit of background so they could give fans a reason to go see it, but that didn't care this poor attempt. This is just my opinion, but this seemed like a pretty blatant try to grab a few more $ from the horror fan community. Not bad, but not worth watching more then once.

    Not great.

    This film was mediocre. And the last reviewer was right about the film being worse than the last one. It's just pointless gore without the scare. Not to mention, there's not a really great story as to why the sheriff becomes the sheriff, why leatherface is so angry, and why the dumbass old guy in the wheelchair is in a wheelchair. Plus, the cannibalism is so unrealistic. This story is not heavily based on true events. The actual killer referred to was a somewhat cannibal who was similar to the guy from silence of the lambs. Plus, his family weren't killers and he only killed two official people.

    scary but not great

    I thought that the remake of the original was better than this one. I think that this movie was not good because of the music and because.of some of the characters. Some of them where so dumb and stupid that they actually made me laugh at the for a little while. I'm not saying I hated the movie I'm just saying that I kinda thought that it was fake for being based on a true story.

    NOpe

    The only good thing about this movie is Jordana Brewster, just because she's hot and worth looking at. Other than that, this movie shouldn't have been made.
