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.

No Bueno

I only saw this movie to see Trey Songz's acting debut. He did just okay but the script as a whole was terrible. The movie didn't have enough of a story line. The beginning was also weird. I almost walked out in the first 5 minutes. I would recommend seeing this movie at your nearest $1 theater in a few weeks. We also laughed more than anything so if you want a real horror flick don't see it. The 3d effect was also low. I gues it's just another way to raise the price.

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..

An unusal family bonding experience

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!!!

Much better than expected!

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!
