I'll say this now....Tobe Hooper's Chainsaw is a better movie. This Remake is better than Chainsaw 3, but that's not saying much. This film had the gore, it had the jumps, it had the . . . well it had Harry Knowles' head on a plate, always a plus. That's about all this film had. The plot of the film, it was stale. I know, I know it was a remake, but still, I'm tired of seeing the whole whacko family that practices murder on broken down strangers as a past time.
"Let's pick up a strange person. Let's meet up with the yokels of the town to show how stranded these people really are. Let's try to start the car and it won't. Let's ignore some pretty obvious signs that these people aren't quite right. Let's get the car started, but then mess something else up on the car so we're still stuck."
Maybe it's because House of 1000 Corpses is still fresh in my mind. This remake was unnecessary. I thought maybe it was going to be good after all the reviews I read about it from different horror sites. I enjoyed seeing Leatherface without his mask on, and I enjoyed the end credits because the movie was finally over. I know, everyone else here that's big on horror is going to knock me, but that's how I honestly felt about this film.
