When their suspicions finally were confirmed, vigilantes torched the Sawyer compound and killed every member of the family -- or so they thought.

      What to Know

      Critics Consensus

      As an ugly and cynical attempt to rebrand Leatherface as horror anti-hero, Texas Chainsaw 3D is a bold move for the franchise.

      Nikki This movie is ass they took a great movie and ruined it the whole movie makes no sense it's horrible and all it's about is people fucking it's bad DONT WATCH THIS MOVIE Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/24 Full Review Josh u It wasn't bad. It's just a pointless direct sequel to the Texas Chainsaw (1974) movie, that shouldn't have been made. It was a decent movie, however, it just knocks the other movie's timelines. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/06/24 Full Review George X Texas Chainsaw 3D makes no sense in Leatherface's Legacy but it has over-the-top blood & gore action sequences and a noisy raw Chainsaw (plus the poster of the film is beautiful such as Alexandra 😏) Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/18/24 Full Review Emilliano Jr S A trying hard version of previous ones. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 09/03/23 Full Review C C I remember wasting money in a theater to see this film upon it's initial release, and after revisiting it on DVD today, realized why this pile of hot garbage is easily the worst film in all of the sequels and reboots. The only integrity this film holds is casting actors from the first two films, of which I've admired and respected, but to cast them as bit extras for 5 minutes, it serves no honor to those first 2 films. There is nothing likeable about the cast otherwise. Even without the loose connections to the original, if this film was made as an original piece of cinema, it's plot is so absurd and ridiculous, that it's a complete waste of the money and budget used to make it. Rated 0.5 out of 5 stars 08/28/23 Full Review wajd m Cheap, cringey, predictable and boring Rated 1 out of 5 stars 08/12/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating

      Sara Michelle Fetters MovieFreak.com Every horror clich in the book is unleashed. Rated: 1/4 Aug 9, 2016 Full Review Chris Stuckmann ChrisStuckmann.com The trend lately in Hollywood is that the first weekend in January belongs to horror. Unfortunately for us, it's subpar horror. Rated: F Apr 23, 2015 Full Review Marjorie Baumgarten Austin Chronicle This new film survives on its formulaic horror mechanics and the powerful image of a chain saw wielded in 3-D. Rated: 2/5 Jan 11, 2013 Full Review Debbie Lynn Elias Behind The Lens This is what good horror film moviemaking is all about - story, characters, visual appeal and genuine jump out of your seat terror! Nov 27, 2019 Full Review Cleaver Patterson CineVue Starts promisingly but soon becomes yet another sub-standard American gorefest, with little or no real body. Rated: 2/5 Feb 7, 2019 Full Review Jennifer Heaton Alternative Lens ...Continuing where the first left off? Good idea. Filling the movie with unlikable characters, stupid plot twists and broken continuity? Terrible idea. Rated: 2/10 Nov 1, 2018 Full Review Read all reviews
