It ain't on the same level of quality as the original but as a slasher movie it ain't to bad.
The acting is decent. No one here gives any award-winning performances but for slasher standards it is fairly decent.
The effects are great, mainly practical stuff here and it looks top notch. If any CGI was used it was so briefly I didn't notice it.
The story is pretty standard as far as slashers go, with a couple of clever plot twists here and there. There were some plot holes that bothered me. Such as most of the people from the flashback in the beginning don't look 30-40 years older when they later reappear in present day. Where did all these new family members from the opening come from? And why is Leatherface now called Jed instead of Bubba?
I liked the directing and cinematography. The movie is well paced and offers some nice angles and panning shots. The murder scenes are well staged and pretty suspenseful.
If you're a fan of slasher movies from the 70s and 80s this might be up your alley. But if you're a movie snob that's hard to impress go watch something else.
