Critic Reviews:

Texas Chainsaw Massacre fails to redefine Leatherface's legacy any better than the sequels and remakes it leaves in the rearview. Those who only value slashers based on their body count and murderous creativity might give this pure guts, no glory slasher a pass. Otherwise, 2003's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre does "dark and gritty" better.

On the one hand, it's a bummer to see yet another Texas Chainsaw Massacre fail to capture what makes the first among the most terrifying tales ever told. On the other hand, it's the sort of disappointment you get used to as a TCM fan. Bad sequels are now as much a part of Leatherface's legacy as his inaugural installment. So, in that way, this one kills.

...the death scenes in this one are seriously impressive. I loved them so much that it’s one of the few reasons I didn’t give this one a lower rating. The gore is absolutely fantastic, the deaths are brutal and energizing, and the effects are top notch. Even though I was not a fan of this film I will still be praising these deaths for years to come.
