Texas Chainsaw Massacre Remake

I love horror movies but I've never seen the original because it seemed too disturbing.

Nevertheless, I went out last night with some of my classmates to watch the remake of it and then we went out for sushi afterwards.

Even now, I'm still wondering why I went to see it...

Have any of you guys seen it yet? And if so, what did you think?

If I can describe it in one word it would be disturbing...

Herself? It wasn't a date

Actually, I really shouldn't have seen that movie because it let horrible images in my mind (and they probably won't go away).

What was really disturbing was how I was analyzing the scientific and the mathematical standpoint of the movie:

"Well, we obviously know that the event that Leatherface picks the locker with Jessica Biel in it and the event that Leatherface picks the locker with the pig in it are mutually exclusive because one locker is not going to fit both of them"

"See how Leatherface is swinging that chainsaw? You can find his center of mass easy..."

"Do you think that there is an association between rural areas and homicidal families? Give me that table of chi-square values."

date? huh?

Yeah, I have seen graphic images a few years ago on the net.. they stay in your minds eye for about a week after which they fade. I don't even go out for stuff like that anymore, rather go see some pretty pictures or movies :)

Havn't seen chainsaw massacre yet, but as long as your on the topic of 'disturbing' movies...I saw kill bill lastnight. It was an hour and a half of multi camera angled limb severing and decapitation

Tarantino did however manage to fit some culture into it. So if you don't feel like going for the gore, go for the cultural experience

Nevermind. Speaking of massacres, I just massacred a joke.

Yes. There are some websites out there that freak me out. It's morbid and I can't believe people can actually withstand viewing things like that with an unusual calm.

That's why I'm more into comedy (even romance movies aren't that bad).

But horror movies can have a positive effect. I feel smarter after watching some of the teenagers in 80's horror movies.

I want to see Kill Bill (I might be going next Sat).

I expect a Tarantino film to be filled with that kind of stuff.

The origional movie was horrible! It was one of the worst films I have seen in my life. I would rather watch every Pauly Shore movie than see that piece of garbage again.

In many ways the original is one of the most horrifying movies made. I think part of it is because the terrible film quality makes it seem like it was filmed as it was happening with a cheap camera.

I love cheap horror flicks. Too much spent on effects and slick Hollywood camera work and you actually loose realism. Hitchcock's Psyco, Evil Dead, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, were all cheaply done.
