I first saw The Texas Chainsaw Massacre as a young teenager, and still recall the fear I felt watching it for the first time. I never spooked easily, even as a child. But really....someone like Leatherface could be anybody, anywhere! Especially out in the middle of nowhere!
So...I watched many, if not all of the sequels. Of course, none even came close to the original, though the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 featured some pretty well-known talent and the 2003 "remake" with Jessica Biel, Eric Balfour and R. Lee Ermey was entertaining.
Around Halloween 2012, get ready for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D with Trey Songz, BILL MOSELY!! (Chop Top from TCM2), and cameos from two of the original film's stars, Marilyn Burns and Gunnar Hansen.
