After the first massacre in 1974, the townspeople suspected that the Sawyer family were responsible. A vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer house, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family. Decades later, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from her grandmother. She decides to bring her friends along on the road trip to investigate her inheritance. On arrival, she discovers she has inherited a mansion, but is yet to uncover the terrors that lurk in the basement underneath it. Written by Tom Thomas

Did You Know?


John Dugan, who portrayed Grandpa in the 1974 film, reprises his role in the opening scene of this film. See more »


As revealed in the end of the film, the letter left by Verna reveals Heather's birth name is Edith Rose Sawyer. When Leatherface finds Heather tied up he notices the family sigil branded on her collar bone and in response Heather tells him "It's me! Heather!". This is an illogical response as Leatherface does not know her by her adopted name but rather by her birth name. See more »

Oh wow. Texas Chainsaw 3D was a complete and utter waste of what could have been a fun slasher movie.
6 January 2013 | by See all my reviews

It is unoriginal, uninspired, unscary and so badly put together that it is a miracle that crap like this got made in the first place. I'm a huge fan of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre films (I love the original film and I adore the second part) hell, i even liked the remake and the follow up to the remake. But this film makes the last two films seem like the Exorcist compared how terrible this film is.I first rolled why eyes when i heard who was picked to direct this film, the director of "Takers" which looked like an unoriginal music video looking wannabe gangster film and John Luessenhop lived up to that. This film is completely unoriginal and he creates no tension or scares.

(light spoilers below) As a horror fan, I don't ask for a lot... just show me a good time. I can watch a stupid ass horror movie as long as it's not boring and doesn't insult me as a fan. This film did both. The first being that it's clear that no one gave a damn about telling a good story... want proof... the film opens up with a scene that takes place in the early 70's with a character being a baby... then the film jumps to the present where the same character is in her mid 20's (i kid you not. she should be 40!!!!!) that's how little they cared. The characters are so badly written and in the case of the men... so badly casted.

Man, you know your in trouble when they put a special credit that says "introducing" Trey Songz, which makes me wonder if they even saw this film because he's Busta Rhymes in Halloween Resurrection cheesy and terrible in this film. He clearly doesn't have any real talent or charm as actor but the producers thought it would be "kool" and "hip" and that "the kidz today" would run out to see him and hear him on the soundtrack because that's what kidz like in scary movies.

the only saving this film from completely earning my hate is... Alexandra Daddario. She was out standing. She took a badly written character and really made brought her to life. She gave a paper cut out of a human being... emotion and made me stay with the film despite how terrible the film is. She's gorgeous, i love her eyes and has an amazing stomach (who the director felt he had to show off any chase he got... but I'm not hating ;p) it's only in the last 20 minutes where the film actually gets pretty good, mainly because they stayed with Daddario's character... which is how the movie should have been. Daddario is a real actress... unlike the male characters in this film. Tania Raymonde was gorgeous and played her slutty character down to the letter... nothing more... nothing less. The last 20 minutes is the only thing worth watching.

Besides that, it's a complete waste and an insult to real horror fans. This film wasn't made for fans... it was made by people who wanted to sell out the infamous horror series to the modern kids... with no care about telling a good story or making a good film. You can tell because they took Massacre out of the film title. They had a terrible script and it looks like they didn't really care. They had a director you didn't care as well besides making it look "kool"... and they failed at everything. Don't waste your time watching the first hour of of this unoriginal Hollywood committee made crap.
