New Line had to pay $3 million more than it expected to in order to keep the series in the studio fold after Dimension Films made a pricey deal with original rights holders Tobe Hooper, Kim Henkel and Robert Kuhn. See more »

This is a list of every extra scene on the Unrated DVD 1. A bit more blood when Sloane (Leatherface's mom) is in labor with Leatherface. 2. Two more violent shots of Leatherface smashing his boss's legs with the hammer. 3. A whole new scene where nine bikers, including Holden and Alex smash up the car of the teens, also causing Eric's mirror to break which explains his line ''God Damn it, broke my mirror!'' 4. Some extra dialog when Sheriff Winston and Hoyt (not the sheriff yet.) Where Sheriff Winston tells Hoyt how one of his friend told him how to finger a horse. 5.

There's a very short conversation with Holden and Alex into Luda Mea's store after Bailey asks where the bathroom is. 7. Hoyt pulls the piece of glass out of Bailey's stomach after the car crash and he licks the blood off of the glass and Bailey screams at him ''You *beep*
beep* 8. There is some more dialog in Sheriff Hoyt's car with Eric, Bailey and Dean in it. 9. When Bailey is tied under the table, Leatherface walks into the room and she starts screaming as he stares at her. 10. Before letting Dean do the push ups, Hoyt yells some more at Dean and now, Dean has to do twenty push ups instead of ten. The scene is the same, but Dean just like, goes from eight to eighteen. 11. There is more dialog between Luda Mea and the Tea Lady including the Tea Lady saying how good she thinks Ice Coffee is. 12. Eric's torture scene is a bit longer, it includes some more shots of him getting tortured and an shot from his arm skin getting peeled off. 13. The scene where Chrissie first enters the house is extended a bit, when Luda Mea drops the jar, she cleans up the mess and she throws it into the trash can. 14.

In the slaughterhouse, When Leatherface looks for Chrissie in the blood pools, we see an extra POV shot of Leatherface looking into a blood pool, without Chrissie in it, and lots of rotten flesh floating around. 19. During Dean's death scene, there's an extra graphic shot above Dean when Leatherface is still running the chainsaw for five more seconds. 20. Chrissie's death scene includes two extra shots, one is the chainsaw cutting up her belly button, and the second shot is him pulling the chainsaw out of her.
Personally, I can't stand horror films sometimes, but I love to watch them at the same time. I know that's ironic, but a good scare is in need once in awhile.
Now if you like gore, suspense, and intensity then this is the movie for you! The acting was great and I loved finally seeing how the family came about with their sickness for killing people.
The gore is so bad that a few girls at different times ran out of the theater about to throw up, but that's how you know that is a good movie. So I would definitely say go see Texas Chainsaw, but BE PREPARED for what you are going in for once you sit down in that dark theater!!!
