Texas Chainsaw 3D *1/2
D: John Luessenhop
C: Alexandra Daddario, Dan Yeager, Tremaine Neverson, Tania Raymonde, Thom Barry, Paul Rae, Bill Moseley, Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns, John Dugan
P: Picking up directly where the original 1974 cult classic left off, a young woman travels with her friends in tow to the backwoods of Texas to claim her inheritance, a house with hidden passageways and her long lost cousin - Leatherface.
REVIEW: As someone once wisely pointed out to me, take a look at the horror films that have been released in January in recent times - The Devil Inside, The Unborn, The Rite, White Noise, Hide and Seek, The Hitcher (2007), My Blood Valentine 3D, etc. Texas Chainsaw 3D is no exception to the rule that if it's a horror film and it's coming out in January, it's probably going to be a sub-par genre effort.
Texas Chainsaw 3D is a pointless continuation / sequel that serves up yet another group of young people for slaughter at the hands of Leatherface. This one goes through the usual paces, but without any energy or gusto. There's a plot twist in the film's final act that is going to anger some and intrigue others, but by then it's too little, too late. [R] 92 mins.
