Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2008)
I’d partially watched this after hearing Chris and Luke of BindTortureKast try to recall the gore level of this film and the difference between the cut and unrated versions. Also, since we have a huge Halloween episode coming up on Dead Air where we’ll be all over the original TCM 1 and 2, I wanted to get into the Hewitt story before getting back into my beloved Sawyers. It’s a very nice entry into the Leatherface story anyhow, even if all the Hollywood glam does kind of gloss over the grit. Mealtime is always the best time in Texas I gather, and though the gore is poorly lit, panned or quick cut, it does have a very cool intro to the birth of their pet monster.
