Overrated much?

I seriously don't get why this is being called a "classic"!?, it's not, it's really slow and predictable, it's a total waste of time. It's exactly like those never ending Friday 13th sequels, they never would end and they were all the same.

Since it is such a classic, I really had to watch this flick at some point and I had some rather high expectations (you can say whatever you want but it is definitely a really bad-ass title).

Eventually, I thought it was not really scary, sure, it was unsettling but not really ... read more

Movie Reviews (301-350) (50 movies items)

" Realistic horror inspired upon the gruesome killings of serial killer Ed Gein has believable acting by non-actors and a villain, Leatherface, that is such a destructive force that it is no wonder he became a horror icon.
