This is one of several prequels in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. The sequels weren’t even sequels, technically speaking. We like to be told the same story over and over, when it comes to Leatherface. He has been the only constant in the seven previous films. None of the other installments were bad and this period piece is another strong addition.
The script is compartmentalized. It all starts with a new take on the classic Texas Chainsaw Massacre supper scene. We soon move to a breath-taking action scene inside a psych ward, then another one inside a diner and so on, so forth. Drama, suspense, action and gore; the film follows a simple pattern and repeats its infallible formula in every scene until the very end.
Between the multiple head shots, the necrophilic threesome and the chainsaw mayhem, there is something for everyone in this gorefest. There are no protagonists or antagonists in this story for a good while. The line between good and evil is pretty much inexistent. Leatherface is extremely violent, upsetting, suspenseful and unpredictable. It is everything Texas Chainsaw 3D should've been!
