Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) Review:

This Texas Chainsaw Massacre (TCM) film for myself is certainly a guilty pleasure, for the unpopular reason of not being high on Tobe Hooper’s original, this remake was justifiable. I’d still give the slight nod to the original TCM, however, they are very much on equal footing. Of course, there are so many reasons why this film could gain negative responses: the decision making by characters were outrageous at times, dialogue and acting was constantly laughable and the girt and atmosphere was not present at all like in the first movie.

Despite those critical pitfalls, there is a good list of arguments on how the film was superior to many TCM and others redneck/bumbkin films. For starters, Leatherface was at his best in this film, the actor had the perfect large, fat size frame and yet possessed an athletic body to run just as fast as everyone else. His demeanor was cold and ruthless with no mental deficiencies, instead suffering from a hideous skin disease. Secondly, R. Lee Emery as the Sheriff and father figure of the family was a terrific casting call by the director and producers. Bringing his hard militaristic attitude to the TCM franchise was awesome to watch.

This new TCM family wasn’t as outlandishly crazy as the original – bringing instead a more realistic and cold-blooded approach. But, there isn’t a ton of gore but the scenes are hard-hitting, very violent, and build a heart-pounding suspense. By remake standards, Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) is above average on the remake spectrum, give it a chance.
