In 1974 there was a massacre at the Sawyer property and a bunch of young people were murdered. The townsfolk suspected the Sawyer family was responsible, and the sheriff was out to get them to surrender, when a rowdy group of townspeople arrived and burned down the property and they thought they killed all the Sawyers. But a few survived, including mentally challenged Jedidiah Sawyer, aka Leatherface (Dan Yeager). Meanwhile, Heather Miller (Alexandra Daddario) receives a letter informing her that she has inherited a mansion in Texas from her Aunt who just passed away. Heather did not know she had been adopted, and when her parents refused to give her any information about her birth parents, she and her friends decide to take a side trip on their road trip to New Orleans and stop and check out her inheritance and to see what she can find out about her mysterious birth parents.
This is a sequel to the 1974 film Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It gives us the background story on the original massacre, along with a lot of follow-up information on what has happened to the original people. But most of all, it gives a really classy horror film. Yeah, Leatherface has been done to death, it seems, but of all the follow-up films, I’ve certainly enjoyed this one the best. It seems Lion’s Gate has done a master job of putting out some great horror films in recent years. This has all of it, dark spooky scenery, sudden jumps and surprises, tons of tension and suspense, and certainly a whole lot of gore. I haven’t seen a good slasher film like this in a long time. It is a very good film, and if you’re a horror fan, you should check this one out.
I didn’t get to see it in 3D, but that didn’t seem to take any of the terror out of the film for me. I didn’t see lots of those obvious 3D gimmicks, and I soon forgot it was even originally in 3D. But my wife and I did scream out loud a little several times. Enjoy it.
