On one last road trip before they're sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends get into an accident that calls their local sheriff to the scene. Thus begins a terrifying experience where the teens are taken to a secluded house of horrors, where a young, would-be killer is being nurtured.
After being committed for 17 years, Michael Myers, now a grown man and still very dangerous, escapes from the mental institution (where he was committed as a 10 year old) and he immediately returns to Haddonfield, where he wants to find his baby sister, Laurie. Anyone who crosses his path is in mortal danger.
Prequel about teenage Leatherface who escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge.
After the first massacre in 1974, the townspeople suspected that the Sawyer family were responsible. A vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer house, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family. Decades later, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from her grandmother. She decides to bring her friends along on the road trip to investigate her inheritance. On arrival, she discovers she has inherited a mansion, but is yet to uncover the terrors that lurk in the basement underneath it. Written by
Filmed primarily in July and August 2011, but unreleased until January 2013. See more »
The film takes place in 2012. At the beginning of the film, Heather Miller is shown to have been a baby in 1973. This would make Heather at least 39 years old. However her character is obviously much younger than that (her actress Alexandra Daddario was only 26 years old at the time of filming). See more »
January is the time of the year that I see as a dead period for great movie releases. As I look at box office results nothing seems to impress me, unless they are December releases or Oscar nominated movies. For the past two years, the first major release of the year was a horror film, and in 2013, Texas Chainshaw 3D was the example. Watching this movie I knew exactly what I was experiencing: an escapism flick. This is the kind of movie I view whenever I wanna have a fun evening getting off from watching blood splatter all over the place. The acting is as you'd expect average, the direction textbook horror and the film as a whole serves its purpose of arousing horror junkies who enjoy these films. I haven't watched all the movies of the series and I didn't watch it in 3D (which I hear wasn't that good), still I managed to enjoy myself, as i just sat back and spent a good time.
