There is reportedly another alternate version, other than the uncut released by Newline: a roughcut that features deleted scenes and the original ending. The bulk of the deleted scenes contain the following:
A scene where Tex, badly burned, is impaled by the spiked trap.
The little girl releasing the sledgehammer that kills Ryan.
Some alternate dialogue excluded from the theatrical print.
"Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3" is the third installment in the "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" series, and proves to be much, much better than the huge disappointment of the ridiculous Part 2.
"Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III" is about a couple who are delivering a car to California, and are crossing Texas country. They stop at a gas station where a creepy set of brothers work, and they are back on the road again. When a tire goes out, they stop to try and fix it, but Leatherface emerges from the darkness with his trusty chainsaw. In a panic to save themselves, they speed off and end up later crashing into another man's car. After the accident, they are chased through the woods and taken to an old secluded farmhouse where more torture awaits.
The family includes Viggo Mortensen, far before his "Lord of the Rings" fame, which is interesting to see him in his early movies. This movie doesn't skimp up on the gore, it is an all-out gorefest, much like "Part II" was, except I enjoyed this one a lot better. I rented it on DVD and watched the unrated version, and it was enough to make you think twice about eating anymore meat, it was pretty darn gory. Bottom line, this is one of the better sequels of the series, and a giant improvement from part 2. It had some suspenseful scenes that were well done and the acting wasn't bad. Overall, a well paced, well made sequel. 7/10.
