What to know

critics consensus

As an ugly and cynical attempt to rebrand Leatherface as horror anti-hero, Texas Chainsaw 3D is a bold move for the franchise. Read critic reviews

Movie Info

Decades ago, residents of Newt, Texas, long suspected that the Sawyer family was responsible for the disappearances of many people. When their suspicions finally were confirmed, vigilantes torched the Sawyer compound and killed every member of the family -- or so they thought. Much later, a young woman named Heather (Alexandra Daddario) learns that she has inherited Texas property from an unknown relative, and she is unaware of horrors that await in the mansion's dank cellar.

Audience Reviews for Texas Chainsaw

    I know I should have hated Texas Chainsaw 3D, it was an insult to the audience and more importantly to the original film. The CGI in the climax was awful and the story was about as dumb as they get. The whole time I couldn't stop myself thinking about how the whole thing made literally *no* sense. But darn it I actually had a fair amount of fun with this one. And I guess, points for trying your hand at an iota of originality, even if, again, it made no sense.

    Laughable, cheaply made and completely illogical sequel to the original Tobe Hooper classic that features gratuitous but dull violence, stupid performances, and giant plot holes. And if this is set "now", why isn't the lead character in her late thirties?!?

    Sharpen your chainsaws, cause it's time for another massacre in Texas Chainsaw 3D. This pseudo-reboot picks up where the original ended, as a lynch mob comes for Leatherface and the Sawyer clan, and burns them alive in their home; however a child survives and returns years later (along with some friends) when her grandmother leaves her an estate, but she finds that she's inherited more than she'd expected. Alexandra Daddario leads the cast and does a fair job as a scream queen. But there are a lot of script problems, and the film doesn't do anything new or interesting with Leatherface. Texas Chainsaw 3D has a few thrills and scares, but it's too formulaic and lazy to really deliver that much terror.

    After reading & hearing so many bad reviews for TCM3D I went in thinking I was absolutely going to hate it but it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be.I loved the way it started off but when it switched from past to present that's when I really expected that I would start hating it but I didn't.I enjoyed the movie up until the part where I guess I was suppose to feel sorry for Leatherface.It didn't make me hate the movie but it did make me feel WEIRD.Who's really going to feel sorry for Leatherface!? I didn't find TCM3D to be all that bad, Maybe just strange especially with the final plot twist & the way it ended.I do wish I would've gone to see it in 3D at the theater
