I guess the younger members of the cast were sufficiently photogenic but that is about all I can come up with in the plus column for this movie.
Where to start? Firstly the story is a jumbled mess of nonsensical gibberish that was made even more horrendous by the films turn to attempting to make Leatherface into some sort of sympathetic anti-hero. I don’t care if he is mentally challenged and his family of murderous rednecks all got burned to a crisp by a gang of vigilantes. Nothing about the townsfolk all being corrupt dickheads justifies anyone siding with Leatherface for any reason let alone a woman whose friends had been butchered by this freak not more than an hour earlier and especially not the gotdamn sheriff of the town.
Idiotic is way too genteel a term for this pile of crap.
I could have done better effects on my iMac than what was produced by what is supposed to be a major motion picture studio. The effects were just sloppy and cheap looking.
Final Verdict: TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D is a steaming pile of excrement that made me ashamed to be a horror movie fan while I was watching it especially when I realized that it made enough obey at the box office to get a sequel made.
