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

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

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.

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

It deserves a modicum of credit for actually making you despise a chainsaw-wielding maniac less than a bunch of lowlife redneck scum.

Texas Chainsaw immediately establishes itself as a significant improvement over the various other entries in this enduring franchise...

The equivalent of filmic road kill ... An abridged version of the original, rendered in bad 3D, serves as a pre-credit set-up and makes us long for the real deal.

You may think that after six movies that there would be nothing left to say on the topic of Texas chainsaw massacres, and you would be right.

Director John Luessenhop delivers some jolts as well as much gruesomeness, but a bogus ending and the convoluted morality of a script that tries to transform the vengeful Leatherface into a sympathetic if psychotic antihero hamstrings his efforts.

( ... ) you might want to imagine I'm wielding a chainsaw that's making the noise rrrrrrrrrrrLLLLLLLLL! And that, as I write, I'm chopping up the three scriptwriters and three story writers on the grounds of over-manning (ditto, nine producers).

Seeing a flick in January usually means lowering your expectations, but no moviegoer should have to endure this.

Leatherface is the smartest one in this picture: he's the only one with the good sense to cover up his face so no one will know he was involved in this putrid waste of time.

This new film survives on its formulaic horror mechanics and the powerful image of a chain saw wielded in 3-D.

There are some gory kills and some goofy fun as a huge chainsaw thrusts out of the screen in 3D, but this is a generic by the numbers slasher that squanders TCM's grimy history.

Includes some of the absolute worst 3-D effects that I can ever remember seeing.

Texas Chainsaw 3D is the sort of movie that makes you wish they made kevler contact lenses.

"Texas Chainsaw 3D" is not a very original slasher film. It mostly serves fans of the horror genre with its stereotypical characters and gore.
