Give Michael Bay a production company, and complete carte blanche over his productions, and what you get is one of the most ugly, mean-spirted films ever committed to celluloid. The overabundance of blood and gore on display doesn't mean a damn thing, it's just a series increasingly empty scenes of attractive young actors getting hacked up, none of whom has a character to play, just a slab of meat that has appointment with a chainshaw. Watching Hollywood crank out these films on a steady flow makes me feel bad for these poor actors, films like these were probably the first big breaks in their careers, and they don't have much to show for it.
This was like a lesser-grade rehash of the first remake. Less quality cinematography, a less coherent storyline, less tension, more gore, less atmosphere. The only interesting part is the sheriff and even that is minimal- certainly not enough to carry a whole movie. Leatherface was good enough to keep this from completely tanking but on the whole there just wasn't enough quality material to make this a good movie.
Yeah, this thing is insanely grisly. Still one of the goriest mainstream horror films I've seen (at least the unrated cut).
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
