Leatherface Reviews

Top Critic

Leatherface ... falls squarely in the tradition of a series that's failed, movie after movie, to recapture the raw, reptilian power of its first entry.

Sadly, the makers of Leatherface didn't put enough thought into a sleepy story that could easily be titled 'I Was a Teenage Leatherface.'

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

The best horror movies leave the most frightening elements to an audience's imagination. Leatherface is not one of those movies.

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

Directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo lay on visual style as thick as the corn syrup used for their buckets of fake blood while Lili Taylor and Stephen Dorff try in vain to lend dignity to the film's lousy, anemic premise.

The effect of the film is the same as the deflating effect of explaining a joke; it completely miscalculates the phenomenon of the audience's original reaction.

An earnest and well-crafted attempt at course-correction, straying from stock slasher recyclage to provide a different story that actually connects a few dots in the very tangled cinematic "Chainsaw" universe to date.

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