    Default The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and The Beginning.

    Who loves these 2 reboots of the franchise? afterall The Texas Chainsaw Massacre in 1974 started off as a scary movie then went to comedy with it's sequels, none of these 2 had comedy but i did liked TCM 2 and 3 though.

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and The Beginning.

    Love both films.

    One of the main reasons for that is R. Lee Ermey, who created one of the most sickest and brutal characters I've ever seen in a movie. Brilliant, brilliant performance.

    I love those two movies! so brutal, freaky and scary i loved it and Jessica Biel was ofcourse wonderful to look at in the first one im still waiting for the second TCM to come on Blu-ray i want it before Halloween :P
    Oh man R. Lee Ermey was sick in both movies, i think TCM I and II are my fav. horror movies so far.

    I love both of these movies, especially The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003). I normally do not get scared, but I remember seeing the 2003 version in the movie theater it freaked me the F out.

    Who thinks it's as dark and scary as the 1974 version and not so comical like part 2 and as gory as part 3 and an improvement over the awful 4th movie with Rene Zelwegger? I do.

    The Beginning was a fantastic prequel to the franchise that it really showed us what made Leatherface the way he was, almost as gory as parts 2 and 3.

    Some people said TCM 2003 with House of 1000 Corpses started the so-called "torture porn" genre, that's incorrect there has been torture porn in the 70's and 80's like "Ilsa She-Wolf of the SS", "New York Ripper", "Men Behind The Sun", etc. but the modern TP genre started with Takashi Miike's infamous cult 2001 Japanese horror-action-gorefeast-comedy "Ichi The Killer" that influenced the American versions. I do admit TCM The Beginning was nowhere as gory as Ichi The Killer, but still a nice bloodbath.

    R. Lee Ermy was terrific as the Sheriff i agree.

    Yea I was a fan of both films as well. Scary, brutal, intense, and suspenseful...perfect combo for a horror film in my opinion. I always like the concept of these films but I will admit that the sequels got worse and worse so it was badly in need a remake/re-telling. Do you guys think either of these films was Bay & co's best horror remake? The 2003 film is up there for me. What do you guys think?

    In my view, the best Bay-produced remakes are "The Amityville Horror" /2005/ and "Friday the 13th" /2009/. Both are very effective horror films, so it's hard for me to pick just one.

    All 3 are the best! i should say Elm Street and Hitcher were the weakest, i mean no one can replace Rutger Hauer as the original Hitcher role since he's one of the coolest actors ever.

    Might be cool since it goes back to the original franchise but might live up to parts 2, 3, remake and Beginning.

    Almost any horror franchise had their 3D installments such as Elm Street, Friday The 13th, Jaws, Amityville and Saw.
