The movie is actually kinda scary and reminiscent to the first film. While it isn't as creepy, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is a pretty decent flick. If you take it's predecessors out of mind, this movie is a pretty potent slasher and one of the best sequels in the franchise!

A decent sequel, but doesn't do anything to set itself apart from the rest of the series. Worth a watch if you want see some of Viggo Mortensen's earlier roles before he was in Lord Of The Rings.

A straight-up gore house. No substance, little style and zero sense.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 was a pretty good movie, that at least I enjoyed and had fun watching. The movie was rather chilling and was pretty thrilling at times.The acting here was okay, but the biggest name cast member in the film was Viggo Mortensen (Psycho, A Perfect Murder). The rest of the cast was unknown by movie-goers, but they weren't too bad. If you want te be scared and entertained, rent Leatherface.

Intense and horrific, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is a return to form for the series. While traveling through Texas a couple on their way to California are run off the road and hunted by a cannibalistic family. Viggo Mortensen leads the cast and gives a strong performance, and newcomer Kate Hodge is also quite impressive. And while the story follows the structure of the other films, it's still able to remain frightening and suspenseful. Additionally, the fights and chases are exciting and action-packed. Though it's cliched at times, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is a chilling and terrifying slasher film.

I loved it as a standalone sequel

A decent addition and second sequel to the franchise, LEATHERFACE won't win any medals for bringing new chills to the table, but its tight, campy directon and creepier version of the chainsaw wielding maniac adds onto the consistency that makes it live up to its preceeders.

It's much closer to the original than part 2, but 'Leatherface' suffers from a franchise that ran dry after the first film. I don't really recommend it, unless you're a hardcore TCM fan or you just like B Horror films.

Now this time leatherface returns but this is now more of a reboot because leatherface was killed in the second one but leatherface is still a good third entry in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise but just like most sequels just doesn't live up to the original but it's a good movie just overall I liked it.

You know what I'm not going to waist my time, this film sucked. It fails in all departments, is a cheaply made slasher, and has nothing to do with the original. Texas Chainsaw Massacre III is pure garbage and not worth any of your time.

An overlooked, fun, campy run at the classic.
½ April 23, 2013
Offers nothing new or exciting at all.

While It's not really original or truly creative, "Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III" is a solid but very inferior sequel (or reboot, maybe?) to the first two films. The new crazy cannibal family is not as engaging as the family in the previous films (which always seems to keep changing, by the way). It tries to be darker than the black humor approach of TCM 2, but it utimately fails at being a gritty horror film and ends up being a fun little sequel that delivers some thrills and some laughs. It's entertaining and even interesting at times, especially to fans of the franchise like myself.

This ended up as more of a re-do and not at all a bad one. It's nasty and was filmed in California instead of Texas, but still feels like some Texas ghost town with some interesting new Chainsaw family members!

A complete waste of time. At least part II had a certain camp quality to it. This one has nothing.

Leatherface is back, and this time, he has brought a whole new family with him! A feuding couple is run off of the road in the middle of nowhere, Texas, where the infamous Leatherface takes after them with his trusty chainsaw. It isn't long before they wind up back at the house of everyone's favorite cannibal clan, but luckily, they made it home just in time for dinner! TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3 is all guts and no glory, taking a big step down from the first two films in the series. It is bogged down by a crowd of unnecessary characters that slow the plot and add little to the story. In its unrated form, the script is still a boring mess, and consists of nothing more than a tedious game of "Stalk and Kill" with too much waiting for far too little action. Even the jilted attempts at humor feel forced and out of place. Director Jeff Burr would blame studio interference for screwing up his film, but LEATHERFACE is way beyond repair.

An incredibly lazy sequel. Adds nothing new the series, Leatherface is played by a sleepwalking stunt man with no creative identity. The film is called: LEATHERFACE! His miscasting should not have happened. Viggo Mortensen tries his best, but isn't given anything interesting to do. I hate to say it, but the film failed to live up to its teaser trailer.

Don't compare this to the original, tie it to it in any way or expect anything similar in any respects and you may be able to take this one as a bog standard slasher. I've seen worse.
