Review by Jason Lees, MoreHorror.com
I love the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. For me, Tobe Hooper's film walks on water and changed the face of not only horror, but of cinema. Before Leatherface, movies weren't meant to be felt as real. They weren't meant to unnerve. They were escapism and fun. Sure, there are exceptions, but the original power tool masterpiece was the perfect film when it came to reinventing onscreen terror. Yes, Psycho and Night Of The Living Dead and several works of art from Europe pre-date our Texas fave, but nothing so graphically inelegant.
Like I said, I Love the original. It's my favorite all time movie. My favorite onscreen killer. My favorite tattoo. Anything done to mar that love should be burned and ridiculed and anyone trying to top it should be burned at the stake. Or at least mocked online.
Then why, oh why, »
