The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. 2006.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, a 2006 American horror slasher film, functions as a prequel to the 2003 remake of the 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Directed by Jonathan Liebesman and co-produced by Kim Henkel and Tobe Hooper (co-creators of the original 1974 film), the film went into release in North America on October 6, 2006. The film’s story takes place four years before the timeline of the 2003 remake. It stars Jordana Brewster, Diora Baird, Taylor Handley, Matt Bomer, and R. Lee Ermey.

The marathon is over and what a great film to end out on. I loved the prequel to the remake of the original??! Brutal, graphic, violent, bleak and disturbing are but a few of the words used to describe this dark little bloodbath. Ofcourse it’s not perfect, horror movies seldom are, but in my opinion it is a worthy addition to the TCM franchise. Excuse me I have to go warm up my chainsaw……….The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning @ IMDB

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. 2003.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a 2003 American slasher film, and a remake of the 1974 horror film of the same name. The 2003 film was directed by Marcus Nispel and produced by Michael Bay. It was also co-produced by Kim Henkel and Tobe Hooper, co-creators of the original 1974 film (Wikipedia).

Just finished hour 10 of chainsaw buzzing craziness and my brain is turning to a bleeding pulp. I had to use some visine to keep my eyes from lighting on fire, which brings me to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2003. I know there are alot of remake haters out there but I for one like them, especially TCM2003. The film is a dark, violent and brutal reimagining of the classsic Hooper film. R.Lee. Ermey stands out in the film as does the stunning Jessica Biel. Im gonna go sharpen my chainsaw now………The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2003 at IMDB.

TCMTNG

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. 1994.

The plot centers on a group of teenagers who find themselves in a secluded area of forest on their prom night, only to cross paths with a family of murderers, among them the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface.

My eyes are now officially bleeding and I am debating if I should be purchasing a chainsaw…..weird. Anyway after having just finished the 4th film in my TCM marathon, the much loathed Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation starring the illustrious Matthew McConaughey and hmmmmmmmm uh Renée Zellweger, I have to say WTF! Pure chaos is really the only way to describe it. Or maybe absolute insanity.

I confess that I did enjoy it, Matt gave a pretty cool psycho performance, the soundtrack was pretty good and Toni Perensky as Darla had a nice boob scene. I did notice that Leatherface keeps getting fatter every movie; it must make it hard to run and carry a huge frikkin chainsaw around. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation on IMDB

Next Up: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)

Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3

Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3. 1990.

Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is the second sequel to the 1974 film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre and was directed by Jeff Burr. It was released by New Line Cinema on January 12, 1990.

The film is both a sequel and a reboot to the previous movies, as the original Sawyer family and apparently the Leatherface character died in the previous film. (Wikipedia).

The third movie into my TCM marathon; my eyes are starting to burn and my ears are buzzing with the incessant hum of a chainsaw! I thoroughly enjoyed Leatherface: TCM 3. It was a fun blood soaked ride through the backwater of Texas. Viggo “Aragorn” Mortensen played a decent role as Eddie Sawyer and Ken Foree was solid as usual. Good flick overall.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. 1986.

“After a decade of silence… The buzzz is back!”

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (also known as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2) is a 1986 American horror dark comedy slasher film, directed by Tobe Hooper. It is a sequel to the 1974 horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, also directed and co-written by Hooper.

Just finished number 2 and I’ve got to say it’s probably my least favourite of the series, ya ya I know everyone hates The Next Generation; but I just found that TCM2 is a bit on the comical side and I wasn’t really a fan of Hopper’s character Lefty. Bill Moseley portrayed the maniacal Vietnam vet “Chop Top” superbly making me laugh and cringe at the same time. There were a few decent gore scenes notably the death and skinning of LG.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. 1974.

Thank god it’s Halloween season again, it really gives me a good excuse to cram in tons of horror movies almost everyday without feeling overly guilty about casting aside the mundane tasks of everyday life.  I had an unscheduled day off today so I decided to indulge myself with a back to back TCM marathon.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is hands down one of my favourite horror films of all time, it spawned numerous sequels and remakes (good and not so good), establishing Leatherface as an American Horror Icon.

There really isn’t much to say about TCM that hasn’t been said a million times by critics and fans so I won’t bother getting into anything redundant.  I’m assuming whoever is reading this is already familiar with this horror classic and if your not I would highly recommend hitting this one up!  Im off.  The Texas Chainsaw Massacre at IMDB
