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.
After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
After the first massacre in 1974, the townspeople suspected that the Sawyer family were responsible. A vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer house, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family. Decades later, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from her grandmother. She decides to bring her friends along on the road trip to investigate her inheritance. On arrival, she discovers she has inherited a mansion, but is yet to uncover the terrors that lurk in the basement underneath it. Written by
In 2007, Platinum Dunes announced they were abandoning the series following The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. In 2009, Twisted Pictures negotiated a multi-picture deal with Bob Kuhn and Kim Henkel, who own the rights to the series. See more »
Leatherface appears to move very fast and limber and very fit to be able to chase around Heather and her friends. Given that the film is set 39 years later he would be in his 60's and not physically fit to terrorize the characters as seen in the film. See more »
If you are a big fan of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre you may want to pretend this film was never made. It can in no rational way stand with the original except in name only. However even in an irrational world this film struggled with basic plot and story development. It was pretty clear that the original draft of this film could have easily been a draft for Scary Movie or some comedy spoof of Scooby Doo.It did have all the right things to make it fit right in with modern horror films but executed everything so poorly you may have thought they were making it up as they went along. As bad as it was you were kind of entertained by the motivation to see if it could get any worse. The basic plot is about a girl who inherits a property belonging to her family that she never knew. It's when she finds out who her relatives are that the story begins.-dun-dun-duuuuuuuuh!!!
I'm not going to comment on the acting because it is a teen slasher film so if you have high expectations then you may have deeper issues than this film. This film had beautiful girls, buff studs and sexual tension from the first narrative scene. Modern Horror. The lead actress was so anatomically perfect it was as if she were ripped from an adult anime film. The most entertaining part of the film centered was centered around how much attention this film wanted you to focus on the lead characters breast. Shot after shot combined with a specific wardrobe selection teamed up to say look at these(boobs) because they are important. Not to ruin it but yes indeed a breast became the turning point in the film. You are lured in with breasts shots but sadly the stars never leave the dressing room after all the build up.There were more impossible and improbable plot turns in this film than a choose your own adventure book. And also the signature fall when you are being chased maneuver is a go to play in this film. There is much to be desired and plenty to perhaps laugh about but in some way it was still entertaining for all the wrong reasons. I probably will not watch this again but will never forget what I saw either. Leave your brain and natural human instincts at home before viewing and you may enjoy this.
