I hate that i am gonna say this but it was stupidly-comedic and hilarious. It's a fun movie actually, and as a fan, i find it very interesting to see if a 2012 type Texas Chainsaw will work and it did. No scare at all but i don't care, do you? 2 THUMBS UP!
In a post-Saw (that's just "saw", no chains attached) cinematic universe, it's refreshing to see a recent horror film which starts off with a premise which tries in no way, shape or form to be needlessly "clever"...honestly, it takes boldness in this day and age to do a "for God's sake,In a post-Saw (that's just "saw", no chains attached) cinematic universe, it's refreshing to see a recent horror film which starts off with a premise which tries in no way, shape or form to be needlessly "clever"...honestly, it takes boldness in this day and age to do a "for God's sake, don't let the monster out of the basement!" movie, and even more balls to make that monster the mighty Leatherface. Sure, by the end it all goes completely batpoop-crazy, but it still retains an internal logic - however "nutzoid" - which endings like the first Saw simply fail to have (guy dying of cancer, decides he's going to imitate a CORPSE in a room with two desperate, trapped guys who have access to nasty bladed implements...just so he can give the audience a big, nasty "couldn't see that comin', could ya?" spook at the end? Spare me)...
Look, this movie is mad, but it's hardly "bad" in an incompetent sort of a way, and certainly doesn't fail to deliver the gruesome goods. Is it as good as the Tobe Hooper original? Of course not. NONE of these reboots or sequels ever had ANY chance of achieving such a thing. Have some more popcorn, and enjoy.…Expand
Movie was great with lots of gore. But how many people are Leatherface?! This one is Jed so I can't keep track.But the directors did a great job into making a new Texas Chainsaw movie after so many years.

This is probably one of the dumbest, most unbelievable films in the series. There is a scene where leatherface chases one of the main characters and she falls not once, not twice, but three times. Leatherface then chases her over a fence into the middle of a carnival, where he runs past about 50 potential victims, apparently set on killing the unbelievably sexy white girl (leatherface must not have approved of her interracial relationship). The girl then decides to grab onto the bottom of a ferris-wheel carriage, because ferris wheels don't go in a circle in her mind. Low and behold, as she is almost to the bottom a cop shows up with a gun. Leatherface throws his chainsaw like a boomerang at the cop.
That was all in the scope of a 2 min scene. This movie is pure silliness. In fact, it is still running in the background as I type this; that's how uninteresting it is. Oh wait, more silliness. Now, after leatherface has killed her boyfriend and 2 friends, this chick all of a sudden decides to save him from a rather fitting and ironic death, and then help him kill the evil hillbilly police that killled his family but somehow let him escape. Like most 3d films, this relies on a name and the fact that people will pay to see the same rehashed crap again.…Expand
