Movie Review: Texas Chainsaw 3D

Alexandra Daddario: Heather
Tania Raymonde: Nikki
Scott Eastwood: Carl
Trey Songz: Ryan

Runtime: 1 hr 32 mins
Rating: R

Plot: Heather goes to Texas with friends to collect an inheritance. It is here Heather and her friends meet up with Leatherface. Little does she know the connection she has with him.

In My Opinion: I knew this movie was not going to be anything new and would be a total cliche, but the horror movie lover in me had to go and see it. First of all this movie is not a remake, it's the sequel to the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw film. You have to pretend none of the others were ever made. It was awesome to see the a montage of clips of the original movie. Okay this movie wasn't as horrible as I thought it was going to be as it had many parts that actually made me jump and some cool gruesome slasher scenes. Now for the bad: The characters were horrible. You had all your cliche personalities, which include the slut, the hitchhiker, and so on. The biggest issue I had with all these characters was they were all so annoying that you actually looked forward to seeing them get killed. The twist was also very predictable and you saw it coming as soon as the movie started. I must also point out that no one in this movie could run without tripping or falling. I know very cliche. It became a little annoying after a while. The truth is it's become difficult to find a horror movie without it having the same old formula. Maybe it's the reason I like horror movies, because I know no matter how predictable they are they are still going to find a way to make me jump.

It Rating Time

The Story: 2 out of 5 stars: It was okay and it did mange to keep me entertained.

The Acting: 1 out of 5 stars: They were all really bad with the exception of Leatherface. 

The Scare Factor: 3 out of 5 stars: Yes it was predictable, but it did keep me entertained.

Overall Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars

Bottom line: It was alright, but you can wait to see at home. Trust me the 3D effects make no impact on this movie.

  1. The original freaked me out more than any other horror movie out there. I watched the Jessica Biel remake and the spin-off with Matthew McConaughey-hey, but have no plans to watch this one. I'm over it. You should've gone to see Zero Dark Thirty!
