Texas Chainsaw Massacre, The


USA 2003, 99 minutes
Dir. Marcus Nispel
Rating: [R18]
Genres: Horror / Splatter


Aroview: Despite being largely unnecessary, and certainly no improvement on the original, this remains a solid remake of Tobe Hooper's groundbreaking 1974 horror film.

Again, a van-load of teenagers become lost in backroads Texas and victims to a grotesque family of chainsaw and hook-wielding maniacs. Slickly shot, this concentrates more on the mechanics of gore and torture, than the ghastly black humour of the original, adding a back-story 'explaining' the source of Leatherface's tendencies through a childhood flashback.
