A failed attempt by New Line to reinvent the titular chainsawer into a Freddy Krueger-style villain.

It's certainly a cut above the standard late-'80s horror film, though hardly up to the level of Tobe Hooper's original.

It's really just another generic slasher flick with nothing beyond the Leatherface connection to recommend it to discerning fans.

For those who saw the first two Massacres, this will seem pretty much deja-boo!

The blade is dull, but there's just enough to make it worth watching.

Taken as a separate entity, this is a competently packaged horror movie that plays by the rules and delivers what the title promises: sadistic killers, whimpering victims, and chainsaws.
