On August 20th 1973, police were dispatched to the remote farmhouse of Thomas Hewitt, a former head-skinner at a local slaughterhouse in Travis County, Texas. What they found within the confines of his cryptic residence was the butchered remains of 33 victims, a chilling discovery that shocked and horrified a nation in what many still call the most gruesome mass murder case of all time. Brandishing a chainsaw and wearing the grotesque flesh masks of his victims, the killer became forever known as "Leatherface" when sensational headlines were splashed across newspapers throughout the state of Texas: "House of Horrors Stuns Nation - Massacre in Texas." Police and FBI eventually gunned down a man wearing a leathery mask and declared they had their killer and abruptly closed the case. However, in the years that followed, many close to the grisly murder case would come forward to level accusations that police had botched the investigation and knowingly killed the wrong man. Now, for the first time, the only known survivor of the killing spree has broken the silence and come forward to tell the real story of what happened on that deserted rural Texas highway when a group of five young kids inadvertently found themselves besieged by a chainsaw wielding madman who would leave a trail of blood and terror that would forever be known as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

One of best remakes over the years, good creepy story and a nice cast including the sexy Jessica Biel in one of her first early roles, Leatherface looks better than he ever did making him a bit more scary again. Over all allot more brutal and intense than the original. A must own horror I would say.

 NOT AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL

I am a massive fan of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre film so in my opinion this really shouldnt have been made. The original is without a doubt one of the best horror films of all time so I didnt see the point in remaking it.

However, I was intriqued to see what they would do with an updated version. It is clear this film was made for film goers or today as it has far more gore in it than the original but far less scary moments. Dont get me wrong its horrible and quite violent in parts but I was never actually freaked out scared by it.

If you look at this as a stand alone horror film this is very good and if you are into your horror films like me then this is definately a worthy addition to your DVD collection.

 A REMAKE THATS A CUT ABOVE THE REST !

The original 1973 movie is without a doubt a classic.
With this 2003 remake allot of the fans of the original would take an instant dislike to ,even before seeing it, as in "if it's not broke than don't try to fix it " I was one of these fans. How could anbody have the balls to mess with pefection ? They tried with Psycho and messed that up. So it was to great suprise that after seeing the remake I could say that it stands up to the original. The film plays it clever by keeping it set in the summer of 1973, and the set up is very similar to the original.but thats when it pulls the rug from under you feet and goes in a different direction. The opening scenes with the suicide in the van is a real shocker, and sets the real sense of fear and dread that sticks with the film to the final second. Only once does the film miss-step and thats by giving leather face a back story and a reason to do what he does. This feels out of place with the rest of the film. but this is soon forgotten by having R.LEE ERMEY ( FULL METAL JACKET )
as the sherrif He is the backbone to this film and he steals every scene he is in,both sadistic and very funny in equel measure. Also allot of time had been given by fleshing out the characters, so when the slaughtering comes, you do feel for the victims. The film is different from the original as this is more a shocker with allot more jumps. as the original was more disturbing and got under your skin more. Also sadly missing from this remake was the dinner scene , and nothing is mentioned about the grave stealing. But this is a new vision of the massacre. and a different kind of monster. I recommend this film to fans of the original ,as if they have not seen it, may enjoy it as much. But saying that, there is always the hard core fans who will just hate it because they have remade a classic.
