great but dismembered movie
the movie could be a great -and bloody- piece of splatter-history... but -alas!!- it's cut to ugly pieces in German and austrian cinemas! just because of this extremely idiotic censorship the whole film has logical mistakes and scenes that don't fit to the following scenes! when is this dumb pseudo-morally cutting going to stop? my gracious lord of bioscopes, the whole movie is rated for adults over 18!!!! why has it to be cut and dismembered???? this is an attack on democracy, free will and art! it is medieval ethics. everyone should boycot films that are cut for "morally" issues! all in all, "texas chainsaw massacre-the beginning" is a remarkable film, worth every second of viewing.
