Reveiw: (This reveiw may contain mild spoilers) Well, I expected this movie to be a really good one. It started an entire series as well as a remake with it's own prequal. When I started watching it I seen that this would be a good movie with some decent actors. However, I then began to get sleepy after the hitchhiker scene. I was begining to ask myself if this were meant to be a horror movie or not. After the first two victims of Leather Face I began to wake up. The freakiest part of this movie for me, was when one of the characters gets hung by her back with a hook. There is a chase scene soon after that. I found the chase scene to be boring and sad, rather than thrilling. There wasn't really any music to make you stay on the edge of your seat to see what would happen next. I couldn't belive that that scene had so much potental, but was boring. After the chase scene I began to get a headache from all the screaming. The screaming was really getting annoying, and began to drive your attention from the movie and onto other thoughts. The ending was my favorite part of the movie, but I didn't get scared or anything. If you are looking for a decent movie then this isn't what you are looking for. There is some good dialoge scenes and some really decent acting, but all the scenes that should have frightened someone sucked. There could have been more music, more gore, and more special effects.
