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.
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.
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.
