The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Texas Chainsaw (2013)

Starring: Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde
Director: John Luessenhop

Premise:
A young, adopted girl finds out she is the heir to a large family estate. One with a pass and horrible secret.

My Take:
When a movie starts off with clips from the original movie (made in 1974) and picks up where it left off, then flashes forward to present day where a nearly 40 year gap is only around 20 years, well you got problems. Whoever wrote that information and thought it was plausible should never write another screenplay again. Even if the view stretches the timeline out the farthest one can; the age gap still makes no sense. And even if we are suppose to ignore this gleaming hole of a fact, the rest of the movie is filled with one dimensional characters doing unbelievably stupid things (like ramming a huge gated fence at full speed in a van because they are being chased by a maniac on foot). If you are a fan of the original then dont even bother as frustration will mount rapidly.

Rating: Steaming Pile
