Another disappointing horror origin movie.
As a child, Jed Sawyer is taken from his murderous hillbilly family and put in the Gorman House Youth Reformatory, where he spends the next ten years with a new identity. When the prisoners revolt, a small group make a bid for freedom with pretty nurse Lizzy (Vanessa Grasse) and fellow inmate Jackson as their hostages.
Tobe Hooper’s original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre ranks as one of the scariest films ever made, its iconic killer Leatherface its most frightening creation. With this latest film in the series, they’ve gone and done what Rob Zombie did with his godawful Halloween remake: give the killer a back story. In humanising the character, they have lessened his effectiveness as an object of fear. Once an emotionless, uncontrollable monster, impossible to reason with, he is now someone we can identify with and feel a level of pity for. It didn’t work for Michael Myers and it doesn’t work here.
The origins story-line also makes much of the film seem frustratingly unlike a Texas Chainsaw movie, at times even reminding me of a Tarantino flick (the escape from Gorman House made me think of Natural Born Killers while the BBQ stop massacre was redolent of both NBK and Pulp Fiction). Only in the film’s closing moments do things actually feel like they belong to the franchise, with Lizzy trying to escape the Sawyer’s charnel house, a chainsaw wielding Jed (soon to become Leatherface) hot on her heels. Directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury don’t hold back on the brutality and blood, but even so, I can imagine many fans of the series being disappointed with the level of splatter (too much for some, not enough for others).
5.5 out of 10, rounded down to 5 for that really dumb scene in which three people (including one really fat guy) hide from the law by climbing inside the festering carcass of a steer. A really big steer. Also, minus half a point for the unbelievable necro sex scene. And another half point subtracted for Jed’s sudden (and also completely unbelievable) transformation from rational human being to hulking homicidal maniac.
the magic is gone but worth seeing
And the mystery is gone. If you are going to make a prequel and do explain how Leatherface became the villain then you really have to make a good flick. Some parts are okay for horror flicks made nowadays others are a bit frustrating.
What they tried to do is to make a gory flick that refers to the beginning of the original Texas Chainsaw Massactre (1974). So off we go to the fifties were we do meet the family already bringing in the chainsaw. But things go wrong and the kids are taken to a mental hospital. That part is a bit boring and it takes a while before they brake out. Once that happens Leatherface is born.
The only problem I had was that they tried a bit too hard to make a story about the family. And by doing so the story itself isn’t that strong. Once grown up the chainsaw did come into the hands again of Ted. And the massacre is born.
On part of the effects it’s all okay and the gore is there but as said, the script. Doing a robbery in Natural Born Killer style, having sex with a death body, Nekromantik style. 3 persons hiding into a cadaver (how do you do that?). Yes, all the best of the classics are used.
Is it all that bad, no not at all, it delivers on gore and a bit of nudity and for the geeks it will work out fine but the magic about who leatherface is is gone, If you can stand throughout the hospital scene’s then it’s worth picking up.
