When the fourth Texas Chainsaw Massacre was released quietly to video, it seemed Leatherface's terrorizing of Texas teens had been terminated. Only Michael Bay and his new production company Platinum Dunes gave Leatherface another look, deciding the time was right for a proper Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot, bringing us a new Leatherface, a new group of teens, and a twisted new family lead by Full Metal Jacket hard-ass R. Lee Ermey as Sheriff Hoyt. This film launched Platinum Dunes' reputation as horror rehab, a reputation that is less than stellar after their reboots of Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street. Was their first attempt their best? Is this Arnie, Stuart, or Brock's favorite of Platinum Dunes' reboots? Listen to find out!
