Ignoring its sequels, and the Michal Bay owned ‘Platinum Dunes’ remake and prequel, comes what is seen (well to the filmmakers – not so positive Tobe Hooper) to be the ‘proper’ sequel the 1974 classic ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’, comes ‘TEXAS CHAINSAW: 3D’. Set a few years after the events of the 70’s film, a young Sawyer family member discovers she has inherited her family home, and more so her murderous nephew of Leatherface.
The problem with this film is it’s just bloody horrible. Nothing makes sense, in the 1974 ‘Chainsaw’ it was based in (then) present day of the 1970’s. This taking place only a few years down the line, has this weird thing where mobile phones are present. Another huge issue from this is Alexandra Daddario’s main character age just not adding up at all. The thing is you might be thinking, im looking into it too deeply, but the thing is, it’s such a big plot hole that it just distracts you from what is going on in the film. More so is the random out of character moments which act as ‘twists’ which lacks any real sense of logic at all. Frankly it is insulting to the original 70’s film, it’s not as if it’s so bad its good, but it really isn’t. If you want a random ‘Texas Chainsaw’ instalment, then look at the 90’s ‘Next Generation’ with a young Matthew McConaughey, Renee Zellweger and Aliens
