The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

I haven't done a movie review for some time, but this one deserves it.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning

This may be the goriest movie I've ever seen. From the very beginning, the birth of Tommy aka Leatherface, you will be grossed out. You see him actually being born. Water breaking, blood pouring out and the screwed up baby sliding out. Kind of slow at first but quickly picks up. And they don't hold back on the blood and gore. If you're squeamish then this ain't the movie for you. When he cuts the biker in half and blood is spraying everywhere or the chainsaw to the Marine and the taking of his face... damn. But it's R. Lee Ermey that really steals this movie. His best performance since Full Metal Jacket. He really makes you believe his character is a psychotic cannibalistic fake cop.

Not as good as the last one they made a couple of years ago, but still worth seeing. 4 stars.
