Was filmed from July to August of 2011, and was originally scheduled for a release date of October of 2012. But due to competition like Silent Hill: Revelation 3D (2012), Argo (2012), Sinister (2012), Paranormal Activity 4 (2012), and Taken 2 (2012), the film got shelved by Lionsgate and eventually released into theaters in January of 2013.

Texas Chainsaw 3D: An improvement on everything that came before
Now having watched all but the most recent venture for Leatherface I can confidently say that I'm not sold on the franchise. How its become a household name I cannot figure out, I only assume its riding off the first movies controversy.
Almost 40yrs after that first movie was released TCM went 3D and delivered what I believe it be the best movie in the franchise.
Starring Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde and Scott Eastwood we see a girl return home for her inheritance only to discover her origins are rooted in blood.
Though the movie doesn't bring anything new to the table it is well enough made and strengthened by a mostly decent cast.
Alas however this is not a sequel and yet another much not needed reboot so expect more origins and less continuation of the Sawyer legacy.
Expectedly gory, mostly well acted and interesting enough to keep my attention this has shown that the TCM franchise has potential but just fails to capitalise.
It's still a reboot
Something about this Leatherface felt off
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
Tania Raymonde's character will have got a lot of tips at the store
Raymonde & Daddario together in a film was too much distraction for my simple mind to handle
Tania Raymonde's character contains enough blood to fill the grand canyon and doesn't require it to operate
Rule 1 of a TCM movie, don't trust anyone
Scott Eastwood is just terrible, I mean seriously the guy never improves
Daddario would make a great villain
