New Chainsaw Massacre

It is always a bold move to remake a classic cult film. Some would say it is a pointless move; trying to beat something that is loved by a dedicated group of fans is certainly an unenviable task. It was with this in mind that I saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

It is, in a word, laughable.

Maybe I’m overly desensitized to these things, but it wasn’t particularly scary or gruesome. It tried to be twisted, it tried to be sick, it failed on both accounts.

Not worth seeing. Find yourself a cheap copy of the original. It’s an order of magnitude better.
