Why oh why can't hollywood create something new? Why oh why do they keep squeezing the last bit of life out of a franchise till there's nothing left anymore..., especially when we're talking about horrorflicks... i mean ten jason movies??? seven freddy ones??? about ten or so, michael myers movies.... and now... the King of all slashers is forced to undergo the same faith....

Why make a prequel to tcm? there's no need for it... the original classic is well a classic... awesome for it's time and still pretty damn scary when u see it nowadays... 2003's remake was, for me, an also very good horrorflick but the sequels were CRAP, i mean they totally dissed the idea and fooked up the franchise... but i guess that wasn't good enuff for hollywood, no they need to make it even worse by adding a prequel in which we get to dig into leatherface's past... :icon_err: They wanna show him before he wore the mask... i mean i don't need to see that... i wanna see leatherface swinging his chainsaw around, cuttin up dumb teenage girls who were so stupid to go and see what that scary noise in the dark was all by themselves wearing nothign but a wet t-shirt and some hotpants.... but i don't need to see leatherface's traumatical childhood years... i mean the peeps who have seen the tcm next generation (i believe it was called) wtf was that...? it was so crap, and i fear this will be the same...

and to make the disaster complete they've hired some noob named Jonathan Liebesman... who also gave us the exititing and awesome "darkness falls" :icon_conf
I don't like the idea of a prequel but ok, IF you really wanna make one at least choose a good director, with experience, not someone who thinx leatherface wearing a pink dress and a chainsaw with lightfx is a great idea.... *sigh*

it looks as if in a few years the icon leatherface was, will be nothing more than a guest appearance in the care bears or something...

sometimes, i really hate Hollywood

Hollywood will green light anything. And if indeed this is true, I wouldn't mind seeing it I guess. Oh, and you're one behind. There's actually 11 Jason movies, and 8 Freddy films. :p

We can't count 'Freddy Vs. Jason' as both a Freddy and Jason film? I don't know. I would.

i hate horror movies, they just ARENT scary
the only movie ive ever been a lil frightened in was the shining and thats coz of the head-fuck it gives not the scaryness
i saw half of texas chainsaw maccacre and turned ut off, it was crap
and what i dont get is when theyre hiding from him and its perfecctly silent then *RRRRRRRRRRRRRRR* a chainsaw comes flying into the shot, chainsaws idle loudly (especially ones made back then) it doesnt make fucking sence
stupid bloody movie, and now theres a prequel, woopty-doo

as you can see, i'm in a good mood :p

Lol, i do admit that modern days horrorflicks are pretty silly, corny but still... it's not my fav genre, but i can enjoy the slashering of blonde bimbo's every now and then ;)

I did like tcm a lot, in my opinion there's no cooler killer than leatherface, but that's just an opinion of course... But what bothers me most is just how hollywood seem to have lost all it's creativity... there is absolutely no need for a sequel, let alone prequel to tcm... As there was no point in making freddy vs jason.... that's the prime example of a lack of inspiration... and now there's talk of freddy vs jason vs pinhead or freddy vs jason vs ash... trust me, in a few years we'll all be watchin' steven's jp dino's flying x-wings using bullit-time... *sigh*
