Movie Info

In this remake of the horror classic, a group of young travelers -- including Erin (Jessica Biel), Andy (Mike Vogel) and Morgan (Jonathan Tucker) -- comes across an isolated rural home while driving through Texas. Unfortunately for them, the decrepit house is the residence of a family of deranged backwoods killers, most notably a hulking masked brute known as Leatherface (Andrew Bryniarski), who begins to hunt the stranded youths down. Will any of the friends survive the nightmarish ordeal?

Audience Reviews for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

  • Apr 13, 2015
    This remake of the original frightfest respectfully borrows enough elements of the true story to be a solid rendition, but Jessica Biel's polished appearance waters down the horror. Really, when is Leatherface not scary? Worth a watch, but its not particularly scary.

    Boring and tedious easily describe one of the poorer horror remakes in the 21st Century. With the lead characters doing nothing but swearing and screaming for the entire film, what's the point of trying to make the audience sympathize with them? Aside from R. Lee Ermey as the corrupted sheriff, the opening with the crime scene is the only aspect of the this feature that's worth watching.

    Gritty and terrifying, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is an impressive remake that equals the original. When a hitchhiker commits suicide in the van of a group of college kids traveling through Texas, they end up stranded and are hunted by a psychopathic family intent on mayhem. Starring Jessica Biel, R. Lee Ermey, and Eric Balfour, the film has a solid cast. Additionally, the chases are incredibly suspenseful and intense. However, the violence is overly graphic and the visual style is a bit grimy. Though the gratuity gets a little out of hand, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre still delivers a captivating and chilling horror film.

    There's a simple formula for horror that this remake seeks to destroy and redefine - failing miserably at both and bringing forth a well-lit, flat, uninteresting film.
