Honest Documentary About the Troubled Film
22 March 2012 | by (Louisville, KY) – See all my reviews

The Saw is Family: Making Leatherface (2003)

*** 1/2 (out of 4)

Extremely entertaining and most importantly honest look at the making of the now notorious LEATHERFACE: Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE III. I was just old enough to remember the controversy around the film with it being taken away from the director, cut up by the MPAA, missing its release date and then getting dumped into theaters where it turned out to bomb and not even enter the top 10 at the box office. Director Jeff Burr is joined by Greg Nicotero, screenwriter David J. Schow, actor William Butler, Leatherface himself R.A. Mihailoff, Robert Engelman and Executive V.P. at New Line Mark Ordesky. Most of these featurettes that appear on DVDs are made to have people talk about how wonderful everything is so I'm happy to report that this one here doesn't do that. Thankfully this 28-minute documentary doesn't shy away from all the controversy as everyone talks openly about mistakes being made and why the film turned out the way it did. I personally enjoy the film on some levels but there's no question that it's a mess that often doesn't make much sense. With this documentary we at least get to hear and see why things went so far out of control and even learn that Burr was fired only to be brought back two days later when the studio couldn't find anyone to replace him! Fans of the film, or those who hate it, will certainly enjoy hearing these stories as they shine a light on the rumors and myths that have been out since 1989.
