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
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 »
After the confrontation at the bar, Heather flagged down Carl's police car. The police car had Texas license plates, but Louisiana registration on the windshield. 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.
