The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003)


Movie Review

Directed by: Marcus Nispel

Starring: Jessica Biel, Jonathan Tucker, Andrew Bryniarski

Erin (Jessica Biel), Morgan (Jonathan Tucker), Kemper (Eric Balfour), Pepper (Erica Leerhsen), and Andy (Mike Vogel) are returning from Mexico on their way to a rock concert when they pick up a hitchhiker (Lauren German) in Texas.  The woman is distraught and incomprehensible; she speaks of some horrifying experience with a terrible, malicious man.  She eventually shoots herself in the head, leaving the group of young adults with a big bloody mess to clean up.  When they go to a plantation to call for help, they learn that the Hewitt family, who owns the area, led the woman to suicide, and that they need to escape the plantation to survive this evil clan.  Thomas Hewitt (Andrew Bryniarski), also known as Leatherface, uses a chainsaw to hunt down and kill Erin and her friends.

Just imagine somebody who is bent on killing you sprinting after you with a chainsaw relentlessly in the dark of night in the middle of nowhere.  The athleticism and dexterity that is required to run at full speed with a chainsaw in hand is incredible.  That’s a real nightmare, and that’s what Marcus Nispel delivers in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.  This remake of the 1974 original is a truly terrifying film.  Leatherface is one of the most menacing and physically imposing mass murderers to ever hack his way to the big screen.  Leatherface is a badass killer who will scare the hell out of you in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
