    The best one by far was the one with McConaughey and Zellweger.

    McConaughey had a robotic knee brace he ran with old remote controls.

    Here's a trailer (red band, but I watched it...nothing bad in it)


    It is so horrifically bad it's awesome.

    So is this the reboot/remake of the craptastic "TCM: The Next Generation"?



    Welp...Spanky beat me to it.

    It's supposed to take place a few years after the original one. Something like the town folk go to the original house and burn it down. You see that (they rebuilt the house and have the original characters including the Chop-Top guy playing the role of the cook). But apparently there's a kid or something that survives and... I'm not making this up... and it jumps forward 20 years or so and goes from there.

    I am disappointed to learn this won't be Jessica Biel in 3D

    The good news is that there is a virtually unlimited number of possible sequels:

    Connecticut Chainsaw Massacre
    Vermont Chainsaw Massacre
    Puerto Rico Chainsaw Massacre
    U.S. Virgin Islands Chainsaw Massacre
    Connecticut Chainsaw Massacre: Leatherface vs. Predator

    The sequel with the dude with the plate in his head and the OU/Texas chili cookoff is as bad. The original series outside of the original is soooo awful its hilarious. The remakes have been very good for horror films at least

    BTW. TNG was almost kept out of theatres. McConaughey didnt want it released as his career was taking off and Zellweger asked for it to be delayed because of Jerry Maguire. it is that bad

    Perhaps it should be no surprise that the anticipation around the midnight release of “Texas Chainsaw 3D” on Friday morning is in direct contrast to most critics' opinions. Horror movies, especially those in the slasher genre, have always been unpopular with those paid to rate the quality of movies. But bad reviews for the latest installment of the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” franchise seem to have had no impact on a bloodthirsty, mostly teenage audience.

    The original “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” was produced on a shoestring budget with no-name actors. Released in 1974, it was about a group of friends who get lost in the Texas countryside and fall prey to the chainsaw-wielding maniac Leatherface. The terror Leatherface inspired in movie audiences catapulted the character – who was in part based on real serial killer Ed Gein and his tendency to make household objects out of human skin – into the popular lexicon.

    Four films have followed that original release, most recently the 2006 “Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning.” That film earned a paltry 12 percent approval rating from critics on Rotten Tomatoes, a misleading number that skews the 64 percent approval designated by fans. If early reviews are any indication, the consensus around “Texas Chainsaw 3D” is unlikely to be any different.



    While the earliest incarnation was about a group of friends who had run afoul of Leatherface, “Texas Chainsaw 3D” reportedly tells how he turned into such a gruesome monster. Director John Luessenhop has said he tried to mold the storyline after the early, suspenseful “Saw” movies and has toned down the body count from earlier “Chainsaw” films.

    “What I love about Texas Chainsaw Massacre is that it's such a classic film,” he said in an interview with Vibe magazine. “The idea of bringing it back to life like it's never been done before ... because it's 3D and secondly, it's always been ... redone and this is a continuation of the story. I'm the first black person in the film ever.”

    Midnight showings are expected to push the film’s weekend gross to around $20 million.

    So, they had the original Texas Chainsaw Massace in 1974. A couple of sequels with Texas Chainsaw 2 and 3, then they rebooted it with the terrible Next Generation movie involving Renee Zellwegger and Matthew McConaughey. They rebooted the series again with the Michael Bay one in 2003, and it's prequel a few years later. Now, they're doing a sequel to the original? Maybe, they need to stick a fork in the franchise.

    You crazy. TCM2 was pretty good for the time. Watching that highway scene as a kid was scary as hell. Chop Top is awesome, because Bill Moseley is awesome.

    Remake cost under 10 million to make, grossed 107,000,000 worldwide

    The prequel cost 16 million to make and grossed 51,000,000 world wide


    This movie cost 8-12 million to make and is expected to take in 23,000,000 this weekend

    Horror sells man. This franchise is really healthy (The remakes at least, the originals outside of the 1st one made jack dick)

    Looking forward to it tonight

    They may say you can't go home again, but nobody told that to Leatherface.

    Much like last year's low-budget found-footage flick "The Devil Inside," "Texas Chainsaw 3D" defied industry expectations over the weekend by becoming the #1 movie in America. The latest flick to be spun from the early-'70s horror classic about chainsaw-wielding maniac Leatherface scared up $23 million at the box-office.

    Saw it Saturday. Its a good popcorn flick
