The Texas Chainsaw Massacre the Beginning
Every story has
beginning and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre the Beginning is that
story. A prequel to the highly popular cult horror movie, the Texas
Chainsaw Massacre takes place before the
first storyline that is set in 1969. As the Vietnam war drags on,
two young men are about to be shipped to this war torn country but
first, a weekend with their girlfriends is on the agenda.
As the group of
friends are headed towards this desolate town, the only business
that is still operating within the town suddenly closes its doors
and when Thomas Hewitt discovers this fact, he brutally murders the
foreman of the plant. This is the incident that leads the deformed
Hewitt into becoming the monster known as Leatherface.
Once again in
classic horror movie cliché, this group of friends are involved in
accident along a lonely highway, only to be taken captive by the
Hewitt's uncle who poses as the towns sheriff. Without spoiling the
movie, the film revolves around a chaotic and hectic night that
will have your adrenaline levels rushing and be warned, this movie
will leave you reeling from the hideous crimes that will be
committed by this twisted family.
Although this film follows
the 2004 remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and puts enough
twists and turns into the storyline to really give the viewer a new
aspect into this horror mythos, even though it heavily borrows from
previous film. The film has a slick presentation that is
masterfully directed with a talented cast but be warned... viewer
discretion is required. Definitely for horror movie buffs!
