Hard to do worse than this extremely gory mess.

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

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.

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?'
June 26, 2005
It adheres to the Hollywood formula for horror remakes: Twice the gore, half the scares.
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.
February 2, 2004
Another pointless remake, and it turns a horrific movie into generic slush.
January 15, 2004
All the bad-rehash mojo from Friday the 13th to The Blair Witch Project has infected Scott Kosar's script.
January 15, 2004
It's horrible and explicitly violent, but never authentically scary.
January 1, 2004
How many times do we need to see the story of low-rent Texas cannibals cutting up innocent teens?
December 14, 2003
There's a simple philosophy behind a movie like this: Add more squishing, add more screaming, and it'll be better. Or at least it'll make more money.
December 3, 2003
Right up there with the "Faces of Death" series in the punch of nausea it likely will generate in some viewers.
