  1. I watched this movie because of the huge hype I heard about it. I could never find it and I finally found it, bought it and watched it. This movie was a disappointment. Some of the scenes are a little scary; Leatherface does look quite creepy though. The movie just drags on way too long. It gets boring and I often wondered why I was still watching it. I do like how they still manage to make it creepy even though there is no gore. I give thumbs up on that part to Tobe Hooper for that fine directing. Sadly it doesn’t save the film because there’s just way too much […] that made me want to change the channel and actually see what was happening on MTV. The bone room freaked me out. I will say that was pretty cool. It really shows where the ideas from the real crime came in and inspired the film. I’m talking about a man named Ed Gein. The inspiration for the film. The movie isn’t a true story as they like to make it sound but hey it is realistic. Tobe Hooper makes it seem real and that’s entertainment. Overall I give the film at least 2 stars only because it such an iconic film. If you’re a fan of the remake which I am then I guess it’s worth a watch basically only to see where the new one got the ideas and just how much better the new one is. I also read thats theres supposed to be a prequel made. Thankfully its by the same people that did the remake and goes along with their version of the srory. Perhaps it will be good but I know must be better than the original.

  2. I think this movie is disgusting and immoral, I’ve never seen it and I plan not to because of what it’s about. And I’d like to know, why people always complain all the time about the Passion Of The Christ. Why don’t people complain about movies like these? when there are blood-curdling chainsaw murders, and when A godly movie comes out thats more graphic than usual, why do people everywhere complain about how horrible it is, when there are plenty of other horrible disgusting movies? it really annoys Me.

    Oh, and by the way, don’t get this 0 star movie.

  3. WORST VIDEO I HAVE SEEN IN MY LIFE. Before buying this blu-ray, I did not know that they are the much OLDER version.

  4. I just need to note that I have not actually seen this film, but I feel that I understand it well enough from the assorted trade publications and articles I’ve read concerning it. Plus, it really holds that if you’ve seen one of this type of movie, you’ve seen them all (and I’ve seen the biggies – “Child’s Play”, “Silent Night, Deadly Night 2”, “Prom Night”).

    Sure, I love horror movies (although I go for the more cerebral, “Boggy Creek”-esque stuff, which relies more on brains than blood), but I cannot understand the appeal of this type of film. I mean, who wants to watch a movie where the lead character goes to unsuspecting people at a busted-down roadside motel and massacres them with chainsaws? Where’s the fun and excitement in that? I can’t imagine that there is any. I’ve heard this doesn’t even take place in Texas, which renders the title completely meaningless.

    So I would suggest you save your money and invest in something worthwhile. I may not have seen this movie, but I know a rat when I smell one.

  5. I have reviewed both this and the remake, and I must say, I’m disapointed in both of them…

    First of all, this TCM is very boring. Unlike most 70s horror films, this one starts out SLOW and boring. I watched it on my laptop, and when I checked the time on it, it was already half way over and no one was dead yet. I also hate that Kirk, Pam, and Jerry all died at pretty much at the same time, and the rest of the movie is just Sally running like an idiot.

    Second, you can’t compare the original and the remake. They are both HORRIBLE! They original is boring and the remake is too distrubing. I have seen EVERY 70s horror classic their is and I msut say, TCM was the one I was most disapointed in. Both films could have been made better, I know it! If anyone wants to re-due the original and remake in the future, here’s my advise…Less gore, less disturbing images, more suspense, more shocking moments, and DON’T WAIT TILL THE SECOND HALF OF THE MOVIE TO START KILLING PEOPLE!

    And finally, if you want a film that has a good orignal and remake…watch “The Omens” 1976 and 2006!

    P.S Tobe, great plot, but the film could have been better, sorry!
