Movie Review:

I would like to say this movie is a must watch, but unfortunately I can’t. This film is another one of those movies that literally put me to sleep. I managed to stay awake for about half of it, but then lost interest and crashed out.

The plot was so so, but the actors missed their mark on this one, there was a couple of the actors that did good, but not going to say who. So if you want my opinion, pass on this one, unless you have nothing else to watch.

Movie Rating: 1 out of 5

Texas Chainsaw 3D Synopsis:

Decades ago, residents of Newt, Texas, long suspected that the Sawyer family was responsible for the disappearances of many people. When their suspicions finally were confirmed, vigilantes torched the Sawyer compound and killed every member of the family — or so they thought. Much later, a young woman named Heather (Alexandra Daddario) learns that she has inherited Texas property from an unknown relative, and she is unaware of horrors that await in the mansion’s dank cellar.

Movie Review:

I caught this movie on IFC channel yesterday, and I sure am glad IFC doesn’t edit the movies they play. Nothing worse then a horror movie on cable TV. They usually manage to edit out every good part of the movie.

Must say it was a pretty good movie, the main character Heather, finds out her Grandmother willed her a house she didn’t even know she had. She finds out that she was actually adopted. So her and a bunch of her twenty-something friends head on out to Texas to see the house that was left for her. They pick up a hitchhiker along the way and bring him with them, only to leave him at the house by himself to collect and steal whatever he wants. During his looting spree he comes across the secret in the basement though….Leatherface

Not going to spoil anymore of the movie for anyone who hasn’t seen it yet, but I do highly recommend it. And it’s always STRANGE by the end of the movie your cheering for the bad guy.
