It's R. Lee Ermey of Full Metal Jacket fame who deserves most of the credit for this remake earning its mutilated thumbs-up.

Hard to do worse than this extremely gory mess.

This poor mediocre remake brings nothing and adds nothing to an already classic film...

Even a paint-by-numbers slasher is a novelty in this decade.
April 16, 2008
An initially promising, but quickly disappointing retread of Tobe Hooper and Kim Henkel's hugely influential horror classic.

'Inspired by a true story' presumably adds to the sordid thrills; maybe we should look forward to entertainments about Nazis torturing children.

Inevitably, given a bigger budget, it lacks the cheap, raw quality of the earlier film that, along with George Romero's outfit in Pennsylvania, showed you could make profitable exploitation shockers on an independent basis far from Hollywood.
August 3, 2007
Just needlessly ugly and unpleasant, not to mention Hollywoodized down to its muddy shoes.

You'll have to overcome resentment towards this unnecessary remake before you can be properly terrorised but, on its own terms, it plays well.

Here's a slice of advice: Go to the video store and rent the original.

The best one can say is that his version is not slavishly in thrall to Hooper's: boring, fright-free and pointless, maybe, but not craven.

The biggest question for me is 'Why?'

It adheres to the Hollywood formula for horror remakes: Twice the gore, half the scares.
April 2, 2005
A little stylised, but still a genuinely creepy tale worth watching.
February 26, 2005
Além não gerar tensão alguma no espectador, ainda torna-se enfadonho a partir de sua metade.
March 19, 2004
Gruesomeness and shock editing are different things from suspense... The Texas Chainsaw Massacre offers plenty of the first two but little of the latter.
February 28, 2004
[M]ay be the most literal example in movie history of squeezing blood from a stone.
