All Critics (75) | Top Critics (13)

The trend lately in Hollywood is that the first weekend in January belongs to horror. Unfortunately for us, it's subpar horror.

The National

The gore is plentiful, the acting is solid, and Leatherface is a monster once again.

Cinema Crazed

With acting that falls way under the bar, poorly written characters, a ten year gap that everyone ignores, and a pretty laughable storyline, Texas Chainsaw is somewhat watchable thanks to the legacy its built on that it nearly pisses all over.

Full Review… | May 14, 2013

There's a great deal of potential in the approach. The execution, however, is half-baked and half-assed.

There's no "there" there. Someone at the studio wasn't thinking when they put this one together.
