Erin's shirt is tied in a knot for the entire movie. However, twice the shirt is not knotted...when running to the closet in the second house her shirt flops around but is again tied as soon as she is sitting with the rats. It is again loose as she runs outside in the rain by the meat factory - tied as she is sitting in the truck. See more »
The film which you are about to see is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of 5 youths. It is all the more tragic in that they were young. But had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected, nor would they have wished to see as much of the mad and macabre as they were to see that day. For them, an idyllic summer afternoon became a nightmare. For 30 years, the files collected dust in the cold-cases divison of the Travis County Police Department. Over ...

As I was walking to the theater door to see this earlier today, I kept thinking I was just going to witness another "Wrong Turn (2003)" But I saw exactly the opposite. This film is a lot better than the other horror films that came out this year. The direction in this movie was outstanding. It gives you a feel that you are actualy there but also delivers some very cool shots. The lighting and cinematography were also very well done.
It has all the major ingredients that go into making of a good horror film. There was gore (which wasnt over done at all but there was still plenty), suspense (which I thought was almost unbearable at times), black humor (which really disturbed me and then made me feel sick for actually laughing at it)...I could go on but I wont.
The acting was excellent! Jessica Biel done better than I had expected and hit all the high notes perfectly. At least she didn't only scream for the last hour of the movie. I enjoyed every minute she was on screen. R. Lee Ermey was excellent in this film. He actaully made me believe that he was a sicko and a few times I feared him more than Leatherface. I wish they could have showed more of his character (Dinner scene maybe?). The supporting cast was also outstanding.
I do have a few complaints though. First, I didn't really enjoy the musical score all that much. I wish they had just used the one from the original. But granted the music was good to help scare you into some really disturbing scenes so I guess it was okay... Second, I miss the big escape from the end of the original. That ending gave you a sense that it could be the end of the survivor if he/she does the wrong thing. Don't get me wrong this one did too, but not like the original. The ending here had its cliched moments but was still thrilling and heart-stopping.
But this was a wonderful horror film that I plan to see again soon! I'm glad this came out. I was getting ready to give up on the new Hollywood horror films. THE SAW IS FINALLY BROUGHT BACK TO LIFE!
