    well one good thing is that this will expose the original to a whole new audience. Most of those people (teens and preteens) will probably not appreciate it and think it sucks, but at least it will be seen by a new wave of fans.

    Hmmm....it looks alot more like the original than I thought it would and I noticed one shot lifted straight from it. I don't know...seems about as pointless as remaking Psycho.

    Where was this filmed? I get pissed off when they don't even film a TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE film in TEXAS.


    Very mixed feelings about this. ... ...... ..

    "pointless" is the perfect word, all right.

    Since when does a movie's budget have anything to do with it being good or not? Sure the remake is pointless but they made it, it may turn out good...may turn out to in fact be a miserable piece of shit....who knows until we have a chance to see it?

    Waiting for the dvd as well....when the Psycho remake came out, i went to see it. I thought that it was kinda strange that somebody would do an exact remake, and figured their must be something more there than i knew of. Imagine my surprise as i was treated to a shot-for-shot piece of suckass cinema, complete with bad acting. The original TCM stands up well, and isn't old enough to warrant a remake.

    BLAIR WITCH MASSACRE!!!

    I'm sick to death of backlit smoky lighting/ sub Fincher atmospherics/ greased up supermodels and all this fucken gothic suburban fashion BULLSHIT!!

    The fact that it was made with a budget over 10 million dollars means that its a piece of shit.

    I wonder who they used for make-up FX?

    If it's good I'm gonna bathe myself in a tub of Coca-Cola and broadcast it on the Internet.

    I can't wait for Harry Knowles to shoot his load over it!!

    MEDIA-OCRITY RULES!!!!>





    So, fucking true. I can't believe the amount of fans that are standing up for it with comments like"Oh, it looks good.", Oh, It looks better than expected!", "It should be worth seeing." If Michael Bay would take a shit on celluloid acetate these people would say the same thing. I laughed when I saw that trailer.

    It looks good but do we really need a remake? Who is the cast? Does anyone know who these people are?

    Like the majority, I believe one thing --

    THIS IS A CRIME AGAINST HORROR!

    It is also a direct slap in the face to horror fans in general. Who would take this job? Marcus Nispel must have been on something, when he believed he could make a movie with even one ounce of the intensity featured in Hooper's. This will be 'Chainsaw' for the 'Scream' generation - a self-referential piece of trash with off-camera deaths and "flashy" editing...

    It shouldn't be! Why not just re-release the original? I'm sure they'd make enough money from it...Heck, the fucks make enough from the DVD!

    I checked out the trailer, and I have to say, even though it is neatly edited, and offers a creepy vibe, it isn't going to trick me! We all know that this film will turn out like every other "slasher" flick of the late 90s.

    Perhaps I'm being too harsh, since I haven't seen it and all, but unless Nispel can pull off a Savini (like Tom did with his take on 'Living Dead'), this new 'Massacre' will likely suck chainsaw fuel...

    They should boil this abomination down into head-cheese.

    Regards,
    D.J. Nock

    Well, I'm saying that because I think it looks like it could be good. And because it actually looks much better than I thought it would.

    The guy driving was on Six Feet Under, I think one of the other guys was on that show Grounded For Life and the other girl was in Blair Witch 2, not sure about the other guy.

    Ok, now I've watched the trailer and I can say even more assuredly that I have no desire to pay one red cent to see this trash. It's obvious that the director/producer are more concerned with showing us how purty their cast members are than creating a true horror experience. Gee, I like the obvious butt-shot of the one girl as well as the "greased-up" shots that someone else pointed out here.

    Hollywood Horror really bites it these days.

    It doesn't seem for me at all that this is a shot-by-shot remake like PSYCHO, but that still doesn't make it worth watching. If a remake can't add something to a film, why remake it? I doubt even TCM's fans will find that this particular movie is improved over the original.

    Eh, boy....don't know if I'm going to give this one a shot or not. But I have this feeling that I'll probably be pissed off.

    Since the remake takes place in the early 1970s as well, will this "hip" young WB/MTV-ish cast be able to lose their affected speech patterns? You know: "OMG! He like, has a chainsaw!".
