So I watched the new “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” (2022) a Netflix exclusive on the weekend it came out so while this film is getting mixed reviews, I want to say that I quite liked it. I liked it a lot really.
There are a lot of people trashing this movie saying it has no story… nothing but blood and gore. Many saying it was not scary enough. Really? I would have to think the exact opposite.
I thought the movie did have a story to tell this time around. I was also surprised how frightening and brutal this was one was. It was a bit gritty some scenes. I think that’s why some didn’t like it ’cause the brutality in the movie even scared the hell out of them. Especially this one scene which I don’t want to talk about to avoid talking about spoilers.
This movie is not a remake… it takes place 50 years after the Tobe Hooper original. Yes, the 2022 movie pushes leftist politics yes but I don’t mind as long as Leatherface slaughters leftist characters which is a part of what made the movie entertaining as hell.
They want to complain and bitch about this new one? Well, the original Tobe Hooper movie had its problems as well as I’m not too crazy about the original to be honest. The original had no plot and that movie is nothing but a girl screaming throughout most of it anyways. I don’t watch the original that much. I wasn’t crazy about Tobe’s directing style either.
My favorite Texas Chainsaw movie is the 2003 remake, that’s the best one, in my opinion.
I was impressed with the new one on Netflix so I’m gonna give it a second re-watch this weekend, I think.
