Rating: D -- The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning relies on made-you-jump shocks and more fake entrails than a Jaycees haunted house.

Much less at the beginning, and much more a remake of the remake... Full Review

The story's been played out so many times.

Rating: 2/5 -- A noisy prequel to the 2003 remake that revs up the power tools to disguise its pointlessness. Full Review

Rating: 1/4 -- ...an ugly film, overwhelmed by transparent shock value, short-sighted storytelling and nihilistic undertones. Full Review

Rating: 0/4 -- Attention sadists: Demand more from your gorefests than this pro forma return to the well. Has mass murder ever been this dull?

Product Description:

Though it's spawned a handful of sequels, it took more than 30 years for Tobe Hooper's ever-potent horror classic to get an "origin" story. Why is Leatherface so angry' Whose face does he wear as a mask' How did his family get their taste for human flesh' A 2003 remake revisited the original film, painted with post-millenial gloss by former music video director Marcus Nispel. For his second feature, director Jonathan Liebesman (DARKNESS FALLS) follows suit, though wisely eliminating the heavy rock soundtrack of the remake.

The film opens with the 1949 birth of the child who would become Leatherface--to an obese slaughterhouse worker. She dies during childbirth and the deformed baby is later found in a dumpster by his adoptive mother. Twenty years later, Chrissy (Jordana Brewster), Dean (Taylor Handley), Bailey (Doira Bird), and Eric (Matthew Bomer) are driving cross country before Dean leaves for his second tour of duty in Vietnam. A run-in with some bikers leads to an intervention by crazed cannibal clan leader Hoyt (R.Lee Ermey), who has just killed the sheriff of the dwindling Texas town and taken on the mantle himself. The chainsawing begins soon after.
