The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) Review:

The origins of Leatherface and the maniacal family that adapted him are front and center in this exhausted prequel. Jonathan Liebesman’s take on the Texas Chainsaw Massacre is in fact nearly everything that the viewers saw in Nispel’s 2003 remake, besides the first few scenes. In my opinion, what this movie needed was a couple of scenario changes: a change from the typical teenagers traveling across Texas, and maybe focus more along of the lines of how the family and Leatherface overtook the town they live in, which was only briefly mentioned. In any case, something different was needed. Yet, and besides the redundant storyline, The Beginning doesn’t stain the franchise or wasn’t a complete waste of time, but instead a gruesome and frightening movie.

The gore and action shots were definitely present in TCM: The Beginning. Kills scenes have never been more brutal, constant carnage, dragged out, not shifting the violence off-screen. There is also way more chainsaw action than in previous films, which was essential for namesake and audience appreciation.

The film’s casting had performances that were split up between good and bad. R. Lee Emery and Jordana Brewster were great, but Taylor Handley and Diora Baird didn’t have a favorable screen presence. With this TCM prequel viewers get a gore-fest, a decent beginning story and hit-miss dialogue. Still it is definitely good if you’re a fan.
