The original script was much more brutal with explicit gore sequences. The producers objected to many of the scenes (one of which had a nude man being split down the middle while hung upside down) and demanded extensive changes to the script to reduce gore and violence. Further cuts had to be made to avoid an X-rating after the film was finished. See more »
At the climax, the chainsaw falls into a small lake/body pit and slowly begins to sink. First of all, the chainsaw's weight would have caused it to sink almost immediately, not slowly. Secondly, somehow the chainsaw continues running despite the fact that no one is giving it gas and it is partially submerged in water. See more »
Leatherface:Texas Chainsaw Massacre III has to be one of the best "slasher" movies to come out of the late 80's early 90's horror slide. It contains genuine moments of terror and some very disturbing scenes. Its previous sequel fell down in many aspects in that it tried to mix comedy and horror at all the wrong moments, however this sequel seems to get it all right. It returns the setting to the isolated house in the woods, Leatherface is completely maniacal in a circus freak kind of way as in the original movie and he looks as ferocious and scary as I've ever seen him. The acting all in all is quite good especially from our heroine Kate Hodge, and Ken Foree of "Dawn of the Dead" fame puts in a memorable performance as the innocent hunter down on his luck. It was great to see Viggo Mortensen perform in such a psychotic, sick way and compare it to his more recent Hollywood successes. Overall I don't see why people had such a problem with this movie. It's the best of the sequels and although that's not saying much, it's far better than Movies like "Hellraiser" or "Candyman" that we're produced during the post "slasher" phase. Granted the cinema version and VHS versions were hacked to bits by the producers themselves but watching this movie as it was intended on Laserdisc brings back some of the impact that people may have missed in the cinema. I give it 4/5
