The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)
USA / English
"Witness The Birth Of Fear "On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers (Handley and Bomer) and their girlfriends (Baird and Brewster) get into an accident that calls their local sheriff (Ermey) to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
Very Good...Full-On Chainsaw. Lots of gore. Very little cheese.
The movie is very good...if you're into this kind of thing. It's nice
to see a franchise splatter film that is intense and gory without being
cheesy. Many of the current crop of splatter films are played
intentionally cheesy for humor. Which is fine, but they shouldn't ALL
be like that. This movie has some humor in it, but it's a darker humor,
and not meant to be cheesy or campy.
Everything that comes to mind when you hear the words "Texas Chainsaw
Massacre" is in this movie. No wussing-out in this one! Murder,
torture, cannibalism, insanity and a touch of the surreal. Oh yeah, and
a chainsaw. No punches are pulled, so this flick is not for the
Tonally it wasn't as surreal as the original, but it had a better
(read: creepier) tone than the 2003 remake. Plenty of blood and guts.
R. Lee Ermey plays a major character instead of a bit-player like in
the 2003 remake, and the film benefits from this.
