I saw a sneak preview last night at my university so decided to do a little write up. I have to say that i never saw the original so watching this movie was the first that i got of this story. Despite how loud the crowd was (laughing and screaming at moments that were good, but not particularly THAT funny or scary) i enjoyed myself but couldn't get totally envelloped in the movie, thus wasn't as scared as i should have been if the theater was quiet. Jessica Biel looks awesome and they (purposely i'm sure) have her in a white tank top throught the movie and throw in some rain and puddles for good measure. The rest of the teenagers are good actors and very quickly did i start to relate to them and care about them. Although set in the 70's they are still dressed in clothes that could be considered hip nowadays and some scenes you forget this was based over 20 years ago. The sound is awesome, the chainsaw is loud and gets a lot of screentime, this will make a great reference DVD. There are some good surprises littered throughout the entire movie and definately lot of shocks. The actor who plays the cop turned a good movie into a great movie in my opinion (i won't say his name, since it was a nice surprise to recognize who it was since its hard to make out in the trailer). Bottom line, go see this movie when it comes out. I saw it for free but definately would justify paying to see it, I will definately be buying the DVD for multiple viewings. Overall score, A-/B+.
