Excerpt: Given the history of this franchise and the cult status of the original, the tongue in cheek departure part 2 carries, I've not seen part III or Next Generation and the decent reboot's + it's sequel, this Texas Chainsaw is cool in a essence because it picks up where the original one ended. Leatherface is certainly ruthless and menacing and the "family" connection is an interesting twist. Bottom line I enjoyed this flick.
Excerpt: just watched this one and while the story has some errors that are easy to notice the movie is great fun if you dont expect a micheal bay badass movie.. this one has some gore scenes as well is brutal and "scary" but more in a less serious and more fun way. i did enjoy it a lot after the first 25 min where over (some of the actors ..not all.. are really B movie actors) video and audio quality is like what you exept from a new lionsgate release.
Excerpt: The movie is decent. Not bad, not good. I kinda knew what I was going into when I bought it but the main selling point for me was Alexandra Daddario. That girl is just lovely. I'm half-serious though. Anyway, the movie is your typical slasher film. there's your helpless teenagers, there's your killer, there's your stupid local cops. Anyone who has seen a decent amount of slasher films will know what to expect. No twists here.
Excerpt: After witnessing that mess called Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning that followed in the tradition of brutally torturing and psychologically flaying young groups of off-the-trail road trippers surrounded by "oh my God" moments, I had the lowest of expectations for TC3D. I think the director did an outstanding job and besides the 03 remake, this is now my favorite "sequel".
Excerpt: I watched The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) and Texas Chainsaw 3D back-to-back today. The first was a grimy, disturbing, psychologically scary film, and the second was a beautified, cheesy B-movie homage to the first. I found both enjoyable, but for very different reasons. I really appreciated Texas Chainsaw's attempt at shooting in 3D with Red Epic cameras. I love the look of native digital 3D!
Excerpt: Yea..This has been done a hundred times over...Nothing near the original..I'm not in to the whole 3-d thing..Like previous posters, I think its a gimmick...The movie wasn't extremely bad, but it was predictable..I'm guessing there is going to be a Texas Chainsaw 500..Or whatever the next sequel number is....Just like the Saw franchise, they are running it in to the ground...
Excerpt: I thought the movie was cliche and horrible, and I predicted the ending. Making it 3D does nothing for me, as I hate 3D and think it's a gimmick. Nothing new with this movie that hasn't been done a hundred times over and the teenagers looked to be straight out of a Hollister catalog. Reference quality audio and video though.
Excerpt: i do truly believe tobe hooper loved and enjoyed this film. he says "it has the spirit of the original". IT DOES. it's the best leatherface since the original in terms of character (the way he's actually sensitive and thinks, though in the mindset of an child. in the original he's treated like a dog, a pet, their protector, cause he's easy to manipulate.
Excerpt: Over all this is definitely a top notch horror movie. When it comes to picture, sound, 3D effects, and acting I don't think one could really expect more. Extras I could care less about since I usually never pay attention to them anyway.
Excerpt: Since the original Texas Chainsaw is 1974, no other movie had reach such acceptation. Personally, I got a lot of expectation about this film, but it just was dissapointing. At least is has a good Blu Ray release.
