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 :-)

Boring Boring BoringBy Peggers (10 reviews) from London , 01 Sep 2009Dull, pointless, unscary and so devoid of tension you'll struggle to stay awake. Never mind the original, this makes the remake of TCM look like a classic.
texas chainsaw massacre the beginningBy loveeggs (26 reviews) from Milton Keynes , 26 Aug 2009i really enjoyed this film as it was scarey and had lots of blood and guts.
THE TACTLESS, SEEN-BEFORE MASSACREBy a customer from Cleethorpes , 23 Aug 2009I concede that creating a prequel is such a thankless task, and finding something new to say or do or point your camera at, when dealing with a family already featured in four previous films, and within a film-genre with such clearly defined 'rules', would probably defeat the canniest of writers/directors. Unsurprisingly, this is a perfectly competent tour of Chez Leatherface, that adds nothing, but like going on a rollercoaster ride for a second time, will still cajole screams out of its audience. Cinematography is suitably grimy and red-hot desolate, but I don't think we'll be visiting 'Texas' again for a long time.... hmm, then again 'The Texas 3D Chainsaw Massacre' has got a certain till-ringing ring to it....... !
scary!By a customer from sheffield , 05 Aug 2009liked it and the scare factor was just enough for me to bear. Crazy that this is a true story.
Very Scary!By Jordan (301 reviews) from London , 29 Jul 2009The first Chainsaw Massacre was terrifying, and this one is no exception.
The acting is very real and there are some jump-off-the-seat moments.
Very scary, very brutal, and a lot of blood. Don't watch if you are squeamish.
