My Thoughts:
As you probably know, I am a big fan of the anime movie "The Girl Who Leapt Through Time". That movie is kind of a sequel to a successful novel from the 60s (the advise-giving aunt in the movie is the main protagonist of the novel). That novel has spawned multiple adaptions in form of movies and TV series. The most famous of those is this movie.
This movie never really clicked for me. Probably because I was expecting more a story like in the anime version. But you can see many parallels between these two movies though.
I just read that there was yet another live-action movie released this year. Can't wait for a DVD release outside of Japan.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Movie Count: 77
TV Ep Count: 38
Other  Count: 2
Time Started: 8am
Plot:
This is the bizarre and tragically gruesome account of what happened to five young friends one summer afternoon in rural Texas. After hearing reports of grave robbing, the group sets out to check on a family grave. Soon after, one-by-one they wander into the murderous clutches of Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen).

'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' is a frightening classic that possesses an undying power to terrorize audiences again and again. It's ability to truly horrify is so strong that when the movie first opened, some people actually walked out in a state of shock.

My Thoughts:
Wow... what to say about this movie. I can pretty much sum it up in one word... Awesome! This one has great atmosphere. It is done very well... real edge of your seat watching here! If there is any one thing I could change about this movie... it would be the non-stop screaming the one girl does at the end of the movie. I do understand why it is there and all... but it just gets aggravating to hear like that after a while. That one scene has definitely cut down on my repeat viewing.
