Hey, I though the first one was preety good good. Pretty better update to a laughable '70s cheesy horror movie.

I might see the second movie as well.

In all fairness, in every review on rotten tomatoes.com, the critic has praised the performance of underrated character actor R. Lee Ermy. I've liked him for a while, he was great in Full Metal Jacket, good in Se7en, and I liked him in Willard and the first TCM remake. I'll see this film just for him.

Don't forget Dead Man Walking! I never understood why every horror movie has to go back to "the beginning"...

Are you thinking of the Susan Surandon/Sean Penn movie?

Yeah, Ermy was good in that, too.

It totally looks like a Razzie contender, since it's October and it's the month in which a ton of horror movies come out to scare the living daylights out of everyone, that's only when they find it entertaining.

p.s. I'll spot Jordana Brewster as a possible nominee for Worst Actress for this film and for ANNAPOLIS.

The Mormons were'nt really popular in the beginning, they're now becoming more popular, even in Hollywood.

This movie got two thumbs down this week. Korianna said the producers were unsure if they were going to let her in to the preview since she was three months pregnant. She said instead of being scared, she was laughing.

Richard Roeper said the best actor was Jordana Brewster's jeans. Hey HeadRazz since you're the only one old enough to have been around in the 70's, weren't women's jeans worn above the waist????

Oh man, I just saw this and boy was I disappointed. Sure there was plenty of blood. It was just so illogical that I was wondering how a family so stupid could survive without getting caught.

Sure R. Lee Ermey was good, but he was just playing himself.

Ugh...what's NEXT in the prequel-to-a-remake film concept? The Omen: Conception of Damien?

Oh, EW, I just got some baaaaad images in my head

Considering it was the devil nailing a Jackal.....God, that'd be weird, but it could work if the former were played by Jack Nicholson or Al Pacino, reprising their roles in the Witches of Eastwick, and The Devil's Advocate, respectivelly. Viggo Mortensen in the Prophecy could have any woman he wanted, ( Well I guess Pacino and Nicholson could have too, but they strike you as the type that would be into that freaky stuff.) so he's out. Peter Stormare wasn't great in Constantine. Who could play the voice of the Jackal ( No Bruce Willis jokes, please.) Take it Deadguy!.......

Hmm, who's got a wicked enough voice? Lance Hendriksen, Sam Elliot, Michael Clark Duncan, and of course Sanndman's favorite: Brian Cox.

I do think it was a good idea that Head RAZZ split the Worst Remake or Sequel category into Worst Remake or Rip-Off and Worst Prequel or Sequel. Since the title of this movie is Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, it qualifies as a prequel. And with a new Halloween movie coming in just 276 days (as of this posting: January 28, 2007 at 12:12 am), there'll be even more lousy horror movies in October, 2007.

From deadguy's last post in this forum, yeah, girls did wear their jeans above the waist in the '70's. They continued doing that into the '80s, you can tell from a bunch of those '80s films and even those TV shows released in the '80s.

There have been others that have had wicked performances, but sometimes not that good at all: like Christopher Lloyd, Tim Curry, etc. Some have been absolutely great, like Ralph Fiennes, and Brian Cox. Brian Cox has been excellent playing some wicked roles, like Troy and X2: X-Men United.

This is one example of a bad prequel. Just like the Star Wars prequels, even though I enjoyed all three of them. The third is my pick as the best of them. The first prequel is my pick as the worst of them (as well as the worst of the entire Star Wars saga).

So, wait a minute, deadguy, Richard Roeper said the best actor was Jordana Brewster's jeans? Wow, that's weird but I think that's also totally cool. I did think she was pretty hot in those jeans anyway.
