Looks great. Way better than I expected. This should have been a wide theatrical release. Would have done enough to justify one.

Would it? People hated TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D.

Also more than half of this movie was reshot by another director.

It's still a brand name. Would have opened to double digits at least. And it certainly looks like a movie from the guys that did Inside. Seems very violent.

Wow this actually looks pretty good. I'm not getting my hopes up, but I'm digging what I'm seeing so far. I know many people including me hated Texas Chainsaw 3D, but honestly if Lionsgate was to give this a theatrical release in October it would probably make a decent amount of money.

THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE is a brand name. LEATHERFACE, not so much.

If this opened in October, it'd make less than $10m OW.

No way.

You say people hated Texas Chainsaw, which is accurate, but maybe calling it Leatherface would help then if you think not many people know Leatherface. It looks like a cool, slick horror flick and I can't see it not doing 10-19 (maybe even 20 Million) had it opened wide in October.

It's the prequel to a movie that came out not-that-long-ago and had the worst legs in the history of wide-release film.

Seriously, look at its weekend drops: -75.7%, -75.9%, -89.3%, -70.5%. And its opening weekend wasn't inflated by a holiday or gimmick.

TEXAS CHAINSAW 2003 actually had an okay reception and the prequel still made less than half as much.

Also? This movie is terrible. There's a reason Kevin Greutert reshot more than half of it in Bulgaria, and there's a reason it's premiering on DirecTV.

It looks awful. I feel with these films it is better not to add "stars". Seeing familiar faces like Stephen Dorff and Lili Taylor removes a necessary eerie component. The Hollywood shine never improves a horror film. Ever.

Maybe the re-shoots made it better ;). Regardless they managed to put out a great trailer so here's hoping it's enjoyable.

Here's a new trailer. It's green band. Nice to see a bunch of new footage from it.

Yep my feelings are pretty much the same as how I felt about the last trailer. This movie might suck, but I'm liking everything I'm seeing so far, especially this new take on his origin.

The guy who directed the reshoots doesn't seem to think so ;)

For a film that was supposedly bad I'm shocked reviews are pretty good so far.

Should have released it theatrically this weekend and had a couple of weekends with no new competition.

lol, Mike.

Two of those are preaching to the converted and the other just says it is "above average".

I never said reviews were GREAT. Above average falls under pretty good.

Publications are more likely to send reviewers to FrightFest that like horror films.

True. If they didn't like horror movies and didn't like the movie I wouldn't take their opinion too seriously.
