Just a little note to say the reviewer's first paragraph reads like it was copied and pasted from the movie's press release. Contrary to popular opinion there never was a Texas Chain Saw Massacre. For anyone who's interested, the plot of both the remake and the 1970s original it's based on was 'inspired' by the murders and other deviant behaviour of one Ed Gein, which I believe happened in the '50s. There were no chain saws, and the few killings took place in Wisconsin, not Texas.
The Gein story also inspired the film Psycho and the Buffalo Bill character from Silence of the Lambs.
