The beast that started it all is actually a very low budget horror and a successful one at that. Its avant guard new age dialogue meta physical ground breaking-god I wish everyone would just fucking die already.
It’s a fun movie that’s very well paced and doesn’t take itself too seriously. Leatherface isn’t scary, he’s literally retarded. “No dude like the way he moves in the natural lighting” Shut the fuck up bitch, listen to his goddamn voice, he’s fucking retarded. This was an aspect that the remakes kind of left behind, which I didn’t hate but retarded leatherface is kind of true to the inbred fucked up story.
So yeah, it’s fun, go check it out. The kid in the wheelchair is annoying as shit but that whole situation eventually works itself out.
