"From 1969 to 1973, the Hewitt family murdered thirty-three people across the state of Texas. To this day, it is universally considered the most notorious and brutally sadistic killing spree in the annals of American history: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre."

How ridiculous will it get? After remaking classics, now they have decided to make a prequel of the remake... I mean, they must be 1000s of struggling young writers with some original and interesting stories who would give anything to make sure their screenplays were  produced. Unfortunately,  the studios would rather make some quick bucks with a known brand and, as a result, they keep giving us... read more

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning is the kind of trash you’d watch at three in the morning on HBO when you’ve got a bad case of insomnia, which is what I did. You watch junk-food movies like this for the clever kills, and this was such a disappointment on that front. Basically, it’s about an hour and fifteen minutes worth of watching the four main characters getting tortured and then al... read more

On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff 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.

Hated or Divisive Movies That I LOVED (47 movies items)

"Often Hated For: Being a prequel to generally disliked remake of a horror classic, its young cast, its violence, and its bleak ending. Reason I Love It: For being exactly what a movie with that title should be. Look the original is untouched and still the best BUT it can't ever be duplicated. The obvious answer would be to make something that embodies the oppressive, hopeless brutality of the scenario and just runs with that angle. Boy howdy, does this one do it. You know no one is going to liv"

"Specifically the uncut version which restores 7 minutes into the running time. This is a prequel to the divisive remake but it's stunningly bleak and brutal. "

"When: December 10th-11th First-Time Viewing: Yes. How: DVD from the library. What'd I Think?: An ugly and generic torture porn, that is not even remotely scary. My Rating: 1/10 Other Notes: I watched the Unrated Version."

2017 Horror Journal (47 movies items)

" There was almost no need to make this film, and by knowing that none of the victims can escape in the end it's hard to even stomach this one. It's brutal, ugly and sadistic simply for the sake of it. The plot points it "adds" to the original are worthless and dumb, the gore is overdone, and it's hopelessly depressing. All of this without any of the breathtaking suspense or stylish direction of the original remake. This is the kind of worthless shit that nearly killed horror. Fuck this movie."
