The gore is plentiful, the acting is solid, and Leatherface is a monster once again.

Texas Chainsaw immediately establishes itself as a significant improvement over the various other entries in this enduring franchise...

"Texas Chainsaw 3D" is not a very original slasher film. It mostly serves fans of the horror genre with its stereotypical characters and gore.

An artless exercise, but also sporadically successful in its attempts to expand on the Leatherface mythos in a new-ish way.

Maybe it's due to ... lowered expectations, but I found "Texas Chainsaw 3-D" a mildly entertaining way to pass an hour and a half on a cold winter afternoon.

That it heads off the beaten track is to its credit - this is a farily self-aware affair - despite the ludicrous nature of the events.

Make no mistake: Texas Chainsaw 3D is a terrible movie, but it delivers better than any other follow-up to the original film. I have to admit I had a lot of fun watching it.

In such slabs of beef, there's always going to be gristle. At least Luessenhop and company cut around most of it and sear in enough seasoning to serve something that, as cheapie-roadside cinematic meals go, is surprisingly digestible.

A better-than-average horror-thriller that relies more on potent suspense than graphic savagery or stereoscopic tricks.

It's kind of surprising. And interesting. And even entertaining after a fashion, if your idea of entertainment involves warranty-voiding uses of the Black & Decker catalog.

An enjoyable sequel that could never live up to the legacy of the original film, and to its credit doesn't try to, but does at least rinse out the sour taste of the Platinum Dunes installments.

Is this a great film? Not even close! How about an enjoyable entry in a decent horror series? I reckon it is!

Will no doubt divide audiences, even within die-hard fan circles, but it is almost always preferable to take chances than to repeat old tropes with no concern for putting a spin on things.

It is every 16 year-old's rite of passage to sneak into an R-rated slasher, get grossed out by blood, turned on by boobs and shout back at the screen. To that end, 'Texas Chainsaw 3D' is a worthy claimant to the franchise.

The trend lately in Hollywood is that the first weekend in January belongs to horror. Unfortunately for us, it's subpar horror.

With acting that falls way under the bar, poorly written characters, a ten year gap that everyone ignores, and a pretty laughable storyline, Texas Chainsaw is somewhat watchable thanks to the legacy its built on that it nearly pisses all over.

There's a great deal of potential in the approach. The execution, however, is half-baked and half-assed.

It deserves a modicum of credit for actually making you despise a chainsaw-wielding maniac less than a bunch of lowlife redneck scum.
