Leatherface Reviews

May 1, 2019
What's best is that beneath the horror are questions of identity. The origins of the character are changed, just a touch. The core remains the same. The saw's still family.

The plot is strangely muddled. It works out in the end, but you'll definitely be questioning whether you're watching the right movie for at least 30 minutes.

Overall, Leatherface feels fresh and different from your standard horror slashers. It's an origin story that's compelling and its own entity.

Ultimately, Leatherface can't really stand on its own, but it hardly needs to.

Like the film's punishingly gory set pieces, the storytelling itself is meaty.

"Leatherface" is the best "Chainsaw" movie that doesn't have "Directed by Tobe Hooper" in the credits.

This Texas Chainsaw prequel lacks the original's terror but gets by on style, strong performances and a bucket or two of the red stuff.

This eighth entry is above average for its attenuated series.

While the account is not terribly original, [Alexandre] Bustillo and [Julien] Maury bring a joie de mort giddiness to Leatherface. It's great to see their French New Wave/splatterpunk sensibilities come alive once again...

the film becomes a kind of whodunnit, or whowilldoit, as we try to second-guess which character will eventually put on the skin mask, and come of age from juvenile delinquent to adult family butcher and human meat chef.

There is never much sense of hope in the film, only a brash defiance that sometimes, for all its ugliness, verges on the heroic.

The gory carnage is sparingly but vividly staged, the suspense-driven plot twisty enough to tax the brain.
