If you are looking for non-stop build up of terror, suspense, emotions, and some blood splatter mixed with attractive young folks see the 2003 remake. If you are looking to see a grindhouse-like film with some jump surprises see the original. Although if you are willing to see a brutal exercise of gruesome violence and a back story on the life of Leatherface, sit down, grab some popcorn, and watch The Texas chainsaw massacre: The beginning. While this movie didn't live up to the 2003 remake, or its 1973 predecessor, it still is a well made film. The biggest problem is it's not "fun" to watch. It's highly brutal and there are a lot of scenes of torture. Although it's not extremely frequent, we do get more character development, hence since it's a prequel focusing on the beginning of the chainsaw massacres. The movie does slow down in some spots, but it gains enough speed to make it a mild recommendation. For sexual content, there is a scene where a woman licks a man's chest erotically, then they kiss. For violence, while it isn't extremely frequent, there is quite a bit of violence. There are tons of torture sequences as well as violent ones. For profanity, there are frequent uses of the f word and its derivative, the a words, the s words, g*dd*mn, Oh my god, and infrequent uses of c*cks*cker, p*ssy. One derogatory term for Vietnamese. One brief sexual hand gesture is seen. For drug content, people tend to drink and smoke. For commercialism, there is none to be spotted. For social behavior, it's bad. Age recommendation is seventeen and up. Constant foul language, including sexual slang for genitalia, a derogatory term for Vietnamese, and multiple scenes of torture and grotesque violence. Brief sexual content including a sexual hand gesture.
