Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: August 18, 1973. News of a bizarre, chainsaw wielding family - reports which were to ignite the world's imagination - began to filter out of central Texas. Regrettably not one of the family members was ever apprehended and for more than ten years nothing further was heard.

I love bad movies but...
8 November 2006 | by valkyriehSee all my reviews

But this was the worst movie I've ever seen. It was so bad it couldn't be good/bad--just plain BAD. Awful. WTF??? Kind of funny but not enough to totally redeem it from total awfulness. You will be bored and incredulous.

You know how some movies can be so bad they are actually good? This ain't one of 'em.

Okay, the one redeeming thing is that Matthew M is really good at playing psycho. But if you want to see a really good movie were he plays psycho, see Frailty and skip this one.

This one has no plot, it is not scary, not witty, and makes absolutely no sense.
