The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning


“We made the Texas Chainsaw remake for $9 million and the movie made $120 million worldwide,” grins a smug Michael Bay in the multipart Making Of. Which tells you all you need to know about the impetus behind this trash cash-in prequel, explaining how the Face got Leathered. At least they can afford to splurge on a decent DVD, with an unrated version adding to the gory glory. As well as the decent Making Of, there’s also an annoyingly backslapping director/producer yaktrack and deleted scenes with three alternative endings – including one in which Leatherface doesn’t have a chainsaw (duh). Personally, we’d have preferred an alternative Beginning.
