Not a good movie by any stretch. The suspension of disbelief starts strong and then gets ridiculous. The cop played by R. Lee Ermy is just... OK, who would possibly believe that is an actual cop. From then it becomes your standard scream fest with people running and screaming with the bad guys chasing them. If you've seen one Texas Chainsaw Massacre you know what to expect here.

Not the worst remake, but still not good.

One of the few reboots I've actually enjoyed and have watched over n' over again..this one tags along with it's prequel "Texas Chainsaw The Beginning" another most awesome telling of the Hewitt family saga and the evil that some men do...Top 10 dysfunctional onscreen family candidate personified..Good cast starring the always yummy Jessica Beals and the always cussing R.Lee Ermey as sgt. Hoyt head of the Hewitt clan. Creepy incestuous family stuff here and loads of Tommy Hewitt a.k.a. Leatherface.

Stepping stone of a new era

I hate people who watch the genre they don't like to start off with and then rate them. They really shouldn't watch what they don't like, as that being said. The original obviously has it's place and sets the stepping stone to this wonderful remake. Jessica Biel is a beautiful woman and a great actress so even if this movie sucked that would be enough. It starts off like the first however they pick up a female instead of a male. She obviously is traumatized by something. She gets in and freaks out blowing her skull and brains all over the rear windshield, this starts the groups journey into a sadistic cannibalistic family. Leatherface is huge in this movie and makes him scarier than the original, as well as he doesn't look like a giant woman in mans clothes as the first did. Horror fans …

Shockingly, I actually haven't seen the original, so I can be unbiased. Apart from the fact I don't like horror films much, for the following reason:
A group of absurdly attractive teens find themselves in a secluded spot. There are a few pre-scares, involving one of them shouting "Boo!"/the lights going out/pigeons/a cat. Some slasher/monster appears, starts picking them off, and they run around screaming until one is left. There's some lame back story about child abuse or something to give a pop psychology excuse for the carnage. She (usually) fights back and dispatches the baddie. He comes back to life, and she kills him again. For good. Or is it...?
This is the plot to 99% of all horror films, and 99% of them are pure shite. But this one actually works, because it does not for the …

The remaking of classic horror movies is an issue that has been raging on ever since the early part of the decade. Some may argue that movies have always been remade and stories retold, and that quite often the re-telling of a good story can, sometimes, be better than it's original source, for example David Cronenberg's 1986 remake of 'The Fly' or John Carpenter's 1982 version of 'The Thing'. But then again, some may argue that true classics shouldn't need to be remade, with a director's original vision being tarnished by changing movie trends or unecessary special effects.

Arguably the movie responsible for the current trend of remakes was director Marcus Nispel's version of Tobe Hooper's 1974 classic 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre'. As with it's source material, the movie not only …
