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
Marilyn Burns, who played Sally Hardesty in the original film, plays Verna in this. This film and Butcher Boys (2012) were Marilyn's first movie roles in 28 years (excluding an uncredited Cameo in Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation). 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 »

As we are all aware, it is hard to achieve the same success with a sequel compared to the original film. Texas Chainsaw 3D carries on for the 1974 version and acts like the other films from the franchise existed...
The film is very entertained and is 'gory. Dan Yeager for fills the role of Leatherface very well and is a due credit to this film. His ability he ensures to the role is up to the standard of Gunnar Hansen in the original movie. However, nothing will ever come close to the original Leatherface. Dan Yeager does exceptionally well and is a lively horror character (obviously suits the role). (9/10) The film is very awarding and the storyline is interesting. It is an enjoyable film unless you're a 'noob' and expect it to be a KICK-ASS blockbuster. The film is easy to follow if you've watched the film movie(1974), as you know the whole 'TCM' storyline.
The bad points: Acting- The whole stereotypical performance of a horror film is portrayed where 'Girl runs off but falls to await her death by the serial killer'. Trey Songz, in my eyes is not an actor and there is a reason he is an artist. But his credit to the film isn't satisfactory as he just drives a VW van, play pool, cheat on his girlfriend and die.
If your cousin was Leatherface you wouldn't throw him his chainsaw and say "Do your think cuz" and that line in the film is a very poor line. No criticism towards Alexandra Daddario as her role deserves credit as her skills are awarding. I think the line wasn't thought through well enough.
Summary: This movie is excellent and 'watch-able' more than once. The scenes are detailed and are extreme with the use of blood which is good as they hold no barrier seen as the movie is about one of the most psychopathic serial killers. Actors from the 1974 version (Gunnar Hansen)appear and I think it was clever to bring them back as it suddenly makes the movie better. Relations back to the first movie gives it a boost as despite being a sequel they don't forget previous happenings and retain some of that '74 momentum. Worth a watch. Rating 7/10 improvement(s): The quality of acting.
