I have seen the trailer and still’s from the film, it looks interesting to me, the effects work is poor but if they could fix it then it could at the very least make for a visually interesting movie.
The original Texas Chainsaw Massacre was released in 1974 and the remake in 2003, i happen to like them both, i would even go so far as to say that the remake was better than the 74′ version or maybe i just have a soft spot for Jessica Biel, no really, it was better, more atmosphere and better acting and overall it just had much better production values, of course better production values does not in itself make a better film, look at the remake of Planet Of The Apes or Peter Jackson’s remake of King Kong, both of them had superior visual effects work but they lacked the charm of the original films.
