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.
Five friends head to a remote cabin, where the discovery of a Book of the Dead leads them to unwittingly summon up demons living in the nearby woods. The evil presence possesses them until only one is left to fight for survival.
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
It was 106 degrees in Shreveport on the day that the fire stunts were performed inside the burning Sawyer house at the beginning of the film. See more »
During all scenes of the VW camper van driving around on the grounds of the house there is tyre squeal this would indicate rubber on tarmac/concrete although all the drive consists of is dry dirt track which would make no noise at all. See more »

Arguably No Better or Worse Than Most of the Sequels
A young woman inherits the estate which belonged to her birth family and takes a road trip with her friends to claim her house unaware that Leatherface lives in the cellar. This seventh Texas Chainsaw Massacre film was shown in 3D in theatres although the process doesn't seem to have helped or hindered the film overall. Bottom line; if you're making a sequel to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre you better be delivering chainsaw action and Texas Chainsaw 3D makes good on that promise. You're not there for the sparkling dialogue, realism or continuity with other films in the series. You're there to be scared sh!tless by a freak wielding a chainsaw and that's what you get...maybe less frequently than you'd like. An average film that is also superior to most films in the slasher genre.
