I just saw Texas Chainsaw Masacre yesterday, and let me tell you that it is #ing scary! I can't recall ever being scared after a movie. Well anyway, I was wondering if people could answer some of my questions.

Was the video footage of the police officer being grabbed at the end of the movie real?

Does anybody know any websites that go in detail about the exact scenerio that took place in Texas? (when I search, I only get movie sites)

Any other comments about the movie?
I was also thinking that we should have a new topic in ATS on murders/crimes etc. What do you think?

Take care

Sorry, I wasn't sure where to put it Goregrinder.

Hmmm, they claim its based on a true story. But obviously I expect it will be over exaggerated. I just want to know the real story, because I'm very fascinated by the crimes that took place.

I still get chills when they show the last real picture of the killer, at the end of the movie.

It is definitely a movie I recommend........and I rarely do this

www.crimelibrary.com...

there is your answer Killuminati. It seems that many charactors were formed off this one killer. And yes the movie was good.

Also I think this would have been better suited in the entertainment forum.

I am fairly sure he is talking about the remake. The New one is good it isnt one of those movies that distroy the original it is very well done. The effects are great and Jessica Biel is HOT!

I was just wondering tho was it in the first one where he dances with the chainsaw and cut off his legs?

I have noticed that there have not been many decent horror movies recently.

I wanna see Freddy vs Jason tho.

TheCore's right. it's very, very, VERY loosely based on Ed Gein. advertising it as 'based on a true story' (as they have been) is a stretch.

movie was pretty good, though. wasn't the original, but it did a good job of what it set out to do. the last minute or so sucked terribly. gawd. it was so stupid it almost ruined the movie.

Before I get to my comments... I'd like to say hello! (Yes, I'm new here).

Anyway... On to the film...

I see your talking about the new version of the film? (Texas Chainsaw Massacre). And yea, as many people have said... It is based on a guy called Ed Gein. Many films have also been made after him - Psycho, Texas Chainsaw Massacre and The Silence Of The Lambs. I have also seen the film called "Ed Gein" which is all on him.

Psycho copied the way he dressed up in womens clothes, Texas Chainsaw Massacre copied the way he cut off peoples faces and put them on him, and Silence Of The Lambs copied the way he was... Well a canibal.

Hope that cleared some things up, and sorry if I seem like an echo of everyone else.

Have any of you actually seen the original version of Texas Chainsaw Massacre? The one from 1974. It was banned over here in the UK for almost 30 years. I've seen and got that one, but haven't seen the new version. Could someone who has seen both, the old version and the new version tell me which is better? Is it worth seeing the new version?

Thank you.. And sorry for the long post. And also I apologise if you were talking about the original version in the first place, lol.

Yeah I saw the original as a kid... for some reason this movie strikes me as scarier.
