(Reads that Texas Chainsaw Massacre article, reads "teeth flying after someone's smashed in the mouth with a meat hammer")
Yeah fuck that, you couldn't fuckin' PAY me to see that. Add this to my list of movies I'll refuse to ever watch. Nope. Ain't gonna happen, for no reason will I see that movie.

Even if we did pay you, it probably wouldn't be enough to cover the cost of the 3D ticket.
The meat hammer thing reminds me of The Midnight Meat Train, which despite having a title that could work for any number of naughty films, is the only movie I've ever seen that has a decapitation from the viewpoint of the victim.
In my case, it's because I have an immense fear of dental horror type stuff. So much so that I just straight up refuse to watch any movies with a scene of it in it.
Considering that multiple films in that series have dental damage(which is inexplicably not a trope?) or the implication of it, I'm surprised if you considered it. Frankly, I'm surprised you bother with horror films at all, considering how many are likely to mutilate someone's pearly whites and not make a big deal out of it.
And I know it's none of my business, but you probably should see somebody about your reactions to that kind of thing, since it's so easy to run into.
How many different names are there for Leatherface now? There is just simply Leatherface, but then there's Bubba, Junior, Thomas, and now Jeb. Okay. It would be great if every horror film series had such mangled continuity.
But in any case, I'm game for another one. I actually like most of the TCM films, except for the couple that I hate.
I somehow doubt this new film will revitalize interest in the series. III tried to boost Leatherface to new, iconic levels and failed pretty miserably(but R.A. Mihailoff's Leatherface was cool).

Eh, it's just something I prefer to avoid. I can deal with it if I stumble upon it, I just prefer to not see it all together. Call it weapons-grade squick for me.

I just saw the Children of the Corn Sy-Fy Original remake. It was okay, but it was extremely anticlimactic. All that build up of the Vietnam vet getting revenge on the kids and he gets lost in the cornfield, goes crazy and gets killed without a fight.
At least we didn't get a horrible, horrible CG He Who Walks Behind The Rows like they planned. I actually kind of liked the Nothing Is Scarier approach.
New Final Destination 5 poster is kinda bitchin'◊.
Of course, I thought The Final Destination had a pretty cool poster and ended up thinking the movie was crap...I'll wait and see what people say about this one.
On another note related to the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Alexandra Daddario is joining the cast.
But yeah, in general I'm not too a big a fan of Slasher Films.
Not due to violence, but because they kill attractive chicks. That ain't cool in my book.
I'd make films that revel in that.
Alternately, a slasher movie where the victims are exclusively "ugly". The Ugly Folk Slasher. All of the potential victims would end up getting cosmetic surgery to save their skins. Potentially offensive.

Hey, don't you cry for them, they knew what they were gettin' into when they went to that campground!
Or cabin, or party, or back road, or...parking terrace.
That makes me wonder, what's the stupidest setting for a slasher film?
A still-active Military Base? After all, you'd expect a building full of trained soldiers to be able to take down one guy with a chainsaw.
I should have said "that they've actually already used".
Can't really think of anything...
Obligatory response of "space".
Some script pages for Before the Mask.

And there having some random rapper play one of the main characters in the new Chainsaw Massacre.
Trey Songz isn't a rapper.
I'm on a Chainsaw kick but aside from the lovely Alexandra Daddario, I'm not sure how excited I should be for the new film.
I wonder who's doing the F/X.
Curse you misleading and superflous letter z... and ill-informed news sites.
Opinion is the same though, I just strongly dislike singers as actors in slashers in general, unless maybe it's just a minor role.
Anywho, watched Midnight Movie a while ago, liked it, and will probably check out the apparently streamlined re-release at some point. I suppose my only complaint is the unimaginatively named "Killer" constantly pulling new powers out of his ass, and the ending, though maybe I'm just jaded when it comes to Kill 'Em All.
And always nice to see Brea Grant.
Victor Crowley vs. Hack/Slash.
Wait, there's a Final Destination 5? Why? (I mean I know why but still) They already ruined the franchise by dropping the bomb that the visions don't mean anything and that death is basically just FUCKING with them.
I can't wait for them to announce her voice actress for the motion comic thing.

How well does it match the trope?
