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

Even a paint-by-numbers slasher is a novelty in this decade.

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

A little stylised, but still a genuinely creepy tale worth watching.

Rarely do re-makes ever need to be done, and rarely are they ever any good. This one is better!

Has that rare quality of not thinking too much of itself but knowing exactly what it is capable of.

Bloody isn't the same thing as scary. It's got the atmosphere and the tone to a T. Lay off the abuse, and you've got yourself a movie.

My predominant thought was that we need less talking and more chainsawing.

Biel rises above the rest of the cast, as a compelling protagonist in a role that mostly requires her to scream and run around in a tight tank top.

It's a gory, stylish, and occasionally scary push-button factory of shocks and shrieks remarkably better than anyone had the right to expect.

It might be dumbed down when compared to its predecessor, but it gains an immeasurable amount of visceral impact as a result.

... a bloody good time of a B-movie.

Movies of this genre are a refuge for that variety of no-name young actors who confuse hanging on a meat hook with career momentum.

Let's get this "based on a true story" thing straight, once and for all.
October 24, 2003
While it can't really compare to Tobe Hooper's brilliant original, this Michael Bay produced remake is surprisingly decent.
October 23, 2003
Anyone who calls him/herself a horror fan should check it out. The squeamish should walk right past this one.
October 22, 2003
Director Marc Nispel isn't a slouch behind the camera and it is clear that he's done his homework, so much so a lot of what goes on can't but feel just a wee bit routine.
