WITNESS THE BIRTH OF FEAR.
This prequel to the 2003 remake starts at the very beginning, with the birth of Leatherface and the story of how his “family” became a gruesome bunch of freaks. R. Lee Ermey returned in the role of the evil sheriff and the film has the same sun-drenched look and sadistic tone as Marcus Nispel’s previous take. The four teens in the leads are just walking flesh waiting to be carved up with a chainsaw – and that’s basically all that happens in this bloody, sloppy film.
