Not even the opening scene where the hitchhiker cuts his hand? Maybe you just suck at watching movies.

I forgot about that. Yeah, that was pretty sweet. Leatherface's brother was probably the best villain in that movie.

And maybe you're just a puss.

And can we at least agree that...

A.) The opening scene from the remake was the best thing in either film.

And B.) That when Chula inevitably shows up and says, "Back then... no one was doing that!" we both mock his bull****?

At least he'd be right this time tbh.

I think the only horror movie to honestly disturb me, and have continued disturbing me after watching it, was Antichrist.

Yeah, I get that. As limited as my knowledge of horror movies is, I still recognize that if I was living in 1974, then it might have rocked my ****. But it's not 1974. I don't care. I will give the second half credit, though. The twist that Leatherface was part of a family of cannibals was nice, but that just highlights that Leatherface was not all that great to begin with.

As cool(ish) as the chase scene in the woods was, it was still not as entertaining and creepy as the scenes centered around the brother and father. I guess that might be my biggest gripe with the movie. The most disturbing aspects of it were when you see relatively normal-seeming people (at least compared to a "faceless" murder machine like Leatherface) acting like monsters, so the whole conceit of the film (Leatherface massacring people with a chainsaw) was inferior to the more human aspects of it, making the first half of the movie almost pointless, since they conceivably could have explored killers with a more human nature to better effect. And even they were too goofy to really work like they could have.

TL;DR - Regardless of who came first, Leatherface is a poor man's Michael Myers.

If that movie taught me anything, it's that Willem Dafoe's sex double packs a lengthy one.

It was way cooler when I thought it was actually Dafoe though.
