Leatherface: This franchise needs time off
14 November 2017 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

I've not been a fan of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, they've had their moments but have never impressed me. This latest outing is no exception and I feel the whole thing needs to be put on the shelf for a while.

With a couple of familiar faces in Stephen Dorff & Lili Taylor we see an alternative origin story for our antagonist as it tells the story of young Mr Sawyer and his early run ins with the law.

It starts strong enough and exceeded my expectations (Which were low going in) but it quickly spirals into mediocrity and covers the content we've seen already for the past 40yrs! It's time for Leatherface to hang up his chainsaw and go on an extended vacation. Somewhere nice, to recuperate and come back reinvigorated in a decade or two.

The Good:

Starts strong

The Bad:

Predictable twist

Falls apart a tad near the end

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

It takes approximately 1 minute 20 seconds to get over a murdered child

The franchise is badly burnt out

Leatherface should have kept the cow mask!
