Me too. I still don't think the original can be beat, but I rather liked the two recent modern takes on the concept. I'm no fan of Michael Bay (I don't mind his films, it's him, personally, I dislike, he seems so arrogant) but I felt the remake showed enough respect to the original to make it worth a look. The prequel wasn't too shabby either and was a neat exercise in sustained violence and horror.

So yeah, I'll definitely check out this latset offering. I won't be able to resist the charms of another Leatherface film.

As far as remakes go,yeah the first film wasn't bad.(There are far worse!)

But hell,yeah,the original stands head and shoulders above them all.

TCM remake was the worst thing ever! and it made so much money it spawned a whole shit-storm of bad remakes.

Remakes were already coming thick and fast at that point and certainly weren't spawned by the TCM remake. And, worst film ever in your opinion, not mine.

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is the most brutal and harrowing horror film ever,it will hold it's place forever as the granddaddy of cinematic terror.#1 horror film for me,no competition.Can't believe this nowadays,but it got it's premiere here in Finland november 1996,till then it was firmly banned and spat upon by the know-it-all censors.Of course by then I had already seen numerous poor VHS tapes from round the world,and I think now I have some 3 DVDs and 2 BDs in my collection,Turbine's 4-disc edition being the über-package I treasure most.There's still a Warner's 40th Anniversary BD on the way,so may it reign forever and cheers Tobe & Kim!

I actualy enjoyed the remake. Is it as good as the original? Not a chance, that movie's a classic and not just in term's of horror movies.

I've managed to Enjoy all the films in this Franchise, well, Part 4 - A new Generation was pretty awful IMO, watched it again recently and while Renee does her best, its just all a bit of a mess... but i like all the others... Part 2 is probably my favorite... i love the original and you're so right about that under the swing shot... gorgeous! but Franklyn really annoyed me throughout... but i guess there was a level of realism in that role and kudos for having a minority represented so early in Horror History
