    I kinda thought they were going to butcher up a classic movie when the First remake came out. Boy was I wrong.... That was a great movie... Can't wait to go see this one... I don't get to the movies often but this one will be a must see for me....

    The beginning looks excellent. i dont know if itll beat the original or not..when they did the first remake i was pleasentlt surprised at how good it was. Saw 3 looks pretty good the 2nd one with the twist at the end was amazing. i hope the new one doesnt let me down.

    I am going to go tonight and watch it if all works out. Movie critics kill me, they dont know a good movie half the time when they see one.

    I also want to see Artie Langes "Beer League", but it's not playing around me anywhere. grrrrr

    I always thought it was a true story butfrom what I been reading it is really to parts of a true story. There was an outbreak of chainsaw murders way bak when{in Texas} and leather face was..well dang I forgot what he done. I'll do some more poking and find out.

    As far as the movie goes I think it will be great!

    OK I can't get that link to work right but I did a paste and copy and this is pretty much it in a nut shell. I did ready a different version but I can't find it anymore:angry:


    Questioning the Story:
    How much of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is based on the real life murderer Ed Gein?

    Despite being heavily touted as "inspired by a true story," both Tobe Hooper's original 1974 film and the 2003 Marcus Nispel remake are only lightly based on the real-life murderer Ed Gein, who is suspected to have taken several victims between 1954 and 1957. Perhaps the most recognizable similarity is the film's house, whose gruesome content was similar to that found in Ed Gein's home (above right) in 1957.
    Did the real Ed Gein ever wear a human's face as a mask like Leatherface did in the film?
    The real Ed Gein did wear a human's scalp and face. The real Ed Gein did this however, to help quell his desire to be a woman, not because of a skin disease as with Leatherface in the film. Also included in his uniform, Ed Gein wore a vest of skin complete with breasts and female genitalia strapped above his own.

    Did the real Ed Gein use a chainsaw to kill his victims?

    No, both of Ed Gein's identified victims, Mary Hogan and Bernice Worden, were shot with a pistol. In November of 1957, police found Bernice Worden hanging from the rafters in a shed behind Gein's house. Her body had been gutted like that of a deer, and the head had been removed. Ed Gein was also the suspect in several other missing persons. The element of the chainsaw that was added for the film's story once again emphasizes the loose connection of the film to Gein.

    Who exactly was Ed Gein and why did he commit such atrocities?

    Eddie Gein was the son of Augusta and George Gein. Augusta was a deeply religious woman, who preached the Bible to Eddie and his brother Henry on a daily basis. She warned them about the dangers of loose women, in an effort to keep them from being cast down to hell. She was a strict, hard woman, who never wavered from her own beliefs, which she ingrained into the family. Eddie's father, George, was an alcoholic, and Augusta viewed him as being worthless. She began a grocery business in La Crosse, Wisconsin, and when she had saved enough money she moved the family away from the sin of the city to a farm in Plainfield, Wisconsin. Eddie grew up shy and was ignored by the other kids at school, who saw him as quiet and feminine. If he did try to make friends, his mother scolded him. As a result Eddie turned inward and began to reside in the dark corners of his mind.
    He worshipped his mother, and grew upset when his brother Henry criticized her. On May 16, 1944, while fighting a brush fire near the farm, Eddie and Henry split up and went in different directions. After the fire had been extinguished, Eddie grew concerned because his brother had not returned. When police arrived Eddie lead them directly to his "missing" brother Henry, who was lying dead in an area untouched by the fire with bruises on his head. The shy and seemingly harmless Eddie was quickly dismissed as a suspect, and the coroner listed asphyxiation as the cause of death.
    Were any other films based on Ed Gein?
    Both Norman Bates from Alfred Hitchcock's Psycho (1960) and Buffalo Bill from The Silence of the Lambs (1991) were also loosely based on Ed G

    Ok you guys,

    I just got finished watching Saw II and the first thing i done at the beginning when the guy has that 'thing' on.. was get up and put cothes in the drier..:crazy: I couldnt take it:crazy:!

    But I really didnt care for it, didnt end right. I thought the first one was better.
    Hope that Saw III isnt just another step in this movie continuing its downhill slide. :confused2:
