Pretty disappointing film. Overall there was parts that were okay but overall not worth at all the prices of new release cinema. Save ur money. This is perhaps best as a rental flick..

I love horror movies, so of course I went to see this. But I expected it to have no substance and just a lot of gore. Well of course there's a lot of gore (it's a Texas Chainsaw movie), but surprisingly the story was very unique and interesting! It starts with the same formulaic group of young adults going to the house that Leatherface is at. But it quickly switches gears and is a really interesting twist on the history of Leatherface's family and the ties that bind him to his only remaining family member. So it truly is a sequel to the original movie from 1974. It even recaps it at the beginning and shows you what happened to the family afterward. So I give the movie props for breathing new life into this franchise with a good story. The 3D sucked (I didn't even notice it), but definitely see it in 2D!

Very exciting and scary. Had me at the edge of my seat. I don't usually like to see these type of movies but I went with my family and felt some comfort knowing they were with me. They will be going back to see it again but not me. I think I'll stay home. Too creepy!

Fun horror ride

Had a good time with this movie last night. Great follow-up that totally disregards all of the original sequels and the remake series. The beginning of the film takes place right as the original ends and then jumps ahead a couple of decades to make a well-rounded storyline. They take some interesting twists and turns with the plot to actually make a non-predictable story. More intelligent than it has a right to be. Some gory scenes, a few eyeroll moments, mostly unlikable characters, decent writing, good cinematography and a little extra 3D fun allowed me to enjoy it a lot but all those things mixed together didn't allow me to LOVE it. Good movie for fans of classic horror, casual viewers of the genre may not feel the same.
