Did You Know?


A draft of the script had Leatherface's name being Jebadiah Sawyer. However, this was later changed to Jedidiah Sawyer. In the 2003 remake, Jedidiah is the name of a young member of the Hewitt family. See more »


Leatherface appears to move very fast and limber and very fit to be able to chase around Heather and her friends. Given that the film is set 39 years later he would be in his 60's and not physically fit to terrorize the characters as seen in the film. See more »

Not good
11 January 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only really good thing about this movie is that it picks up right where the original left off, with a new opening scene featuring many of the original actors, but sadly, they're barely used. After that it skips ahead to a new sort-of sequel, even though the time span doesn't make sense (It goes from 1974 to 2012, even though the main character, who was a baby back then, is in her 20s, but there's iphones and modern music too.) The characters are all bland and barely developed, including leatherface himself. The action scenes are just decent or really dumb, like the scene at the carnival. The gore switches from practical effects to bad CGI at points, and it's hard to take seriously. The movie is very straightforward, even for this genre, and there are some gaping plot holes and a twist ending that is so unbelievable that it actually upset me a bit.

You should only watch this movie if you want to laugh at how bad it is. Other than that, don't bother.
