Texas Chainsaw (2013)



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

All Critics (75) | Top Critics (13)

Texas Chainsaw 3D isn't exactly good, but despite its many clichés and generic indulgences, you want to give it some points for trying.

The original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" leaves audiences feeling hollowed out, dispirited and dissolute. "Texas Chainsaw 3D" is simply a bummer for being a big nothing.

Alexandra Daddario, playing a distant Leatherface cousin set to inherit the manor (and manner), continues her sad career in unbuttoned bondage, and the 3-D effects are especially ruinous.

All the makers of "Texas Chainsaw 3D" cared about was getting your $16.

Try as [Luessenhop] might to honor the original -- flashbulb transitions, a skeevy (yet buff) hitchhiker, metal doors, and meat hooks -- there's little of its mounting dread.

There's no "there" there. Someone at the studio wasn't thinking when they put this one together.
