This is definately one of my favorite horror films. When I saw the photos online I knew it would be good... but i didn't know it would be this good! Although i may get bashed for saying this but- its scarier, more explained, gorier, better acting/characters, and somewhat funnier that the original. Leatherface is also alot cooler looking. The beginning is excellent- the black and white police footage- there is not a boring moment in the film. It literally made my palms sweat- and i watch horror all the time. Every death in the film is full of eye candy. Overall it stands alone- not as a slasher movie but as a DARK film. If you obcessed with the original this may be somewhat of a rude awakening but a good one- to show you how lame the original was! There also will be a 2-disc set coming out with a new cover and TONS of extra stuff- im gonna get that one. I definately recomend this film to any movie watcher!

The remake of the 1974 chiller The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a stylish, atmospheric film, which unfortunately resorts to blood and gore to tell its story. It's a simple story that starts off like any other slasher pic from the 70s and 80s. A carful of sexy teens pick up a hitchhiker, get stranded and become prey to a murderous villain. Unfortunately for the teens in this film (and the original), the villian is not one, but a whole townful of grotesque, psychotic killers. What follows is definitely suspenseful, but uncomfortable to watch and truly hard to sit through. This is one of the most disturbing and violent horror films in recent memory, but did hold my interest because of the great cast and creepy atmosphere. Daniel Pearl, cinematographer for the original 1974 version of Texas Chainsaw Massacre, reprised the position for this movie, which I thinl greatly benefited it. However, while the original relied on suspense and a feeling of dread to scare the audience, this film just tries to gross them out. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. I just wish it didn't have to be so violent.

This remake is fantastic!! Yes the original is a "classic", but it is outdated. This movie is intense. It almost feels like you are part of it. The darkness, the hopelessness of escape, the eerieness and the desperation all come through while you are watching this one. it is directed very well.
I am no expert in this genre, but I know what I like, and this is a good one. I love it!!!!!!

I remember 2003's Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake like it was yesterday... back then, twenty gallons of blood in a movie couldn't do it for me, and so this remake felt (at the time) unsavory, uncreepy, but it had some great torturous moments pre-SAW. Flash forward 10 years later... Nispel's movie gives me chills, goosebumps and the many gallons of blood that couldn't do it back then suddenly don't need to be... Sure, it's yet another remake to try and restart a franchise to make the big bucks, but at least the movie's budget feels like it's on screen rather than behind.

Audio and video wise, we get quite a nice treatment from New Line with a detailed presentation even in the darkest of scenes. Flesh tones feel a bit under-saturated as does the rest of the palette, but it's all part of the look and feel Nispel was trying to achieve to creep us out. The sound does a serviceable job of giving us the jolts we're looking for and some jumps work better than others...

Special features seem to include just about everything that was released on the 2-disc DVD a few years back... which means a bit in-depth and as fun to watch, if not more, than the movie itself.

DANGER: Alliance has issued a sub-par blu-ray similar to this one... it features the regular audio and a french language track. That's about it. So before buying, you'd better check which version's in your cart. New Line products have been endorsed in Canada by Alliance, so just about EVERY single New Line movie you can find MAY have seen all of its special features stripped off. And since Amazon.ca doesn't list the special features (as of March 2013), your best source is to check loads of reviews and check where your movie comes from (hint: american adress is almost a sure home run)... but if you don't really care for special features, then buy whichever feels the cheapest for your wallet since Alliance's audio and video is just about the same as here.

Got this in a 5 dollar bargain bin (yes, this two-disk set) and felt it was a waste of my money. A truly horrible film. Not even "so bad it's good", no, just bad..

When the girl dies in the van early on I laughed out loud, as it was not convincing in the slightest. I suppose it works as a kind of parody of horror films. The fact that it was actually intended to be scary (I think) just makes it funnier. Hey, on second thought, maybe it IS "so bad it's good"...

I am a huge fan of the 1974-Tobe Hooper's film Texas Chainsaw Massacre and consider it one of the most intelligent horror films ever made.So I did have few misgivings about watching this new remake (and not another sequel), being very much disappointed before with similar ventures(one example that comes to my mind is Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes),but watch it I did and I have to admit that I did enjoy it very much.
You have to give credit where credit is due, and to be fair Marcus Nispel, in his first feature film, did a competent job in creating a dark and sinister atmosphere from the very start,and injecting an equal and effective dosage of tension/suspense and gore. All the actors were very good, especially the excellent R.Lee Ermey as the demented sheriff/head of the psycho family,(yes the one and only R.Lee Ermey from Full Metal Jacket fame, but it seems unfair that he is mostly remembered for Kubrick's masterpiece as he has done a large collection of work since).
Other actors who impressed me were Six Feet Under's Eric Balfour, and of course Jessica Biel!(she is a Goddess,it is official!!..but seriously she did a very convincing and sexy performance).
Now I have to point out a very important matter:
You will enjoy this film much more if you do not compare it too much with the original, as some reviewers did, but watch it instead as a 'new' film.
Indeed,the two Texas Chainsaw Massacre films are based on the same horrible events that actually happened in Texas's backyard, so in a way it is not a copy or a remake in the proper sense of the word.
Besides ,if comparisons are to be made, more recent films are more apt,and one can be made with Wrong Turn which was mediocre at best and not as well directed.
