I love the original and sequel and really liked the remake. The rest I could take or leave. The only reason I entertained the thought of watching this one was for the 3D. There were a couple good scenes of 3D, but not enough to make me want to give this a positive review. None of the characters were likable. I did like how it picked up right after the original. I also liked the cameos from Gunnar and Bill from the originals.The story was so-so though. Long story short, I don't think I'd purchase this when it comes out even if it was on sale cheap. As a long time Chainsaw fan, this didn't impress me. But this is only my opinion. See it if you want, just keep your expectations low.

So, Texas Chainsaw 3D. If you're an absolute TCM fanatic this film is a MUST SEE for the opening alone. I also have to add that the film is worth it if only for the cameos from the original. Other than that it's a nice stand-alone horror movie. This incarnation of Leatherface is the closest to the original than in any other TCM remake/spinoff, and even sports the original tie! There are a few good scares, but I'd like someone to explain how a character that was a baby in 1974 is so young in 2012. That's the only problem I had with this picture....
Would I see it again? Yes, but I think I can wait until a home viewing.

With all the prequels and different versions that have came out this one was quite good. I was expecting to be let down but they did a real good job of taking you back to the original movie. At first people in the theatre thought it was going to be shot in that old style of cinematography but it made a smooth transition into the sharp detail and quality of movies today we have come to expect. This movie had a good story and was actually somewhat believeable. I have to give the makers of this movie a hand. They did a good job and instead of ruining an already great movie franchise they added what is sure to be a classic. Also if you see this movie in 3D it is pretty cool. I am a fan of horror and I really enjoyed wathing this. If you are in the mood to have your girl grab your arm every few minutes then this is a must see. I loved it. The only reason I didn't rate it is a must go is becuase I save that for the movies that have no comparison in quaility.

While I totally appreciated scenes from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre showing up, oddly enough one scene that made me afraid as a child, I felt like this movie was decent but predictable. Hot guys+ Hot girls+ road trip= DISASTER in a horror film, everyone knows that!
I say watch it, especially to the fans of Trey Songz because he actually did a pretty good job in his role, not to mention he goes shirtless ladies!!!

Texas Chainsaw 3D was just okay, did not reinvent the series, and I don't see any benefits in sequels, it was just okay. 3D added nothing, no shocks or really interesting effects.It seemed like the editing actually hurt the movie, lacked coherence. A popcorn movie, nothing more...
