AwesomeBy MrG (450 reviews) from Hadley, Telford , 22 Oct 2006
[Highly rated reviewer]I've never really invested my time in this cult movie until recently. I rented the remake and it had the same impact Saw did the first time i watched it. It takes films like the recent Wolf Creek to it's limits. I've been to see TCM: The Beginning last night at the cinema in the dead of night and that chainsaw sounds so loud it's awesome. This film goes a long way to explain how it started, and i was hooked from start to finish, even if i was cringing at the gore on screen. I won't give the plot away although generally the theme to film is already established. It certainly helped me point the finger to who provoked the massacre. A great film! Go watch, if you can hack it :-)

Not goodBy ClassicDisney (5 reviews) , 31 Jan 2013Terrible, nothing tops the original. Just because there's more blood and gore does'nt make it any scarier. There's no way leather face could chase people down.
Good but just like the othersBy Tez91 (11 reviews) from Tain , 18 Nov 2012This film gives a brief introduction to how it all started. A bit to brief in my opinion. The baseline story is the same as the other massacre films so there is no real surprises.
The gore is good and the graphics are superb.
A good film but a new and different story line would have so much better
Not bad...By a customer from Nottingham, England , 03 Mar 2012i was expecting a turd after seeing a couple of the sequels and the remake of the classic original Texas Chainsaw Massacre but this one surprised me as it was half decent and well worth a watch
Worth a watch! Better than remakeBy rachaelknight16 (108 reviews) from Derbyshire, England , 26 Feb 2012Better than the remake, not as good as the original.
If you've seen both before you see this, there's much more gore than both put together. It only focusses on Leatherface's childhood for half of the film - the rest is more or less the same as the remake ie teenages trying to escape. It'd have been nice of they'd made more story of his childhood, instead of opting for the gore in the second half. Still a good film & well worth watching, if only for the 'real footage' at the start and end.
You won't care who dies!By a customer , 24 Dec 2011It's just awful and a massive step-down from the remake. So poor. The humour in this one was unnecessary and about as funny as tooth ache.
