THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (2003 U.S.) D: MARCUS NISPEL W: SCOTT KOSAR P: MICHAEL BAY/MIKE FLEISS
Five more teens (none in a wheelchair) are on their way back from Mexico with a pinata full of weed and tickets for a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert when they pick up a female hitchhiker who blows her brains out in their van. While looking for the Sheriff in the rural backwoods, they of course become the victims of Leatherface and his family of cannibals. There`s no point comparing the innovative, trend-setting original classic with ths slick retro piece (set in the 70`s), but this is an ok remake if you don`t expect much (far more enjoyable than WRONG TURN for example). It`s main assets are R. Lee Ermey as the sadistic, psychotic Sheriff and appealing, shapely lead Jessica Biel, a fine replacement for Marilyn Burns. With Erica Leerhsen, Jonathan Tucker, Mike Vogel, Eric Balfour, David Dorfman and narration from John Larroquette (just like in the original). There was a sequel (actually prequel).
