Okay horror film!
20 August 2002 | by (Chyby, Poland) – See all my reviews

"Leatherface:Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3" is the nastiest installment of the series.There is plenty of violence,gore and ghoulish humour to satisfy many horror fans.The production design by Mick Strawn is simply striking and the acting is fairly convincing.The opening sequence,a grisly excavation of a mass grave in the woods,is unsettling enough to set a proper mood,but the ending is silly and disappointing.As for the characters Alfredo(Tom Everett)simply steals the show-in my opinion he is a variation on the first film's Hitchhiker character.And of course there is Leatherface(R.A.Mihailoff),who has a big shiny new saw.All in all if you liked the first two TCM movies give this one a look-I think that it's worth your time,just avoid "The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre"(1994)like the plague!
