Leatherface is back for this third feature in the most recent reboot of the long-running horror franchise. While the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre films weren't exactly runaway box office hits, the addition of 3D to the proceedings could help boost this sequel's appeal. For several years now, horror films have leaned towards the found-footage or paranormal end of the spectrum, so it could be refreshing to see the genre get back to its slasher roots.
In this particular entry, it appears director John Luessenhop (Takers) is forgoing a lot of the hillbilly family elements of the earlier films (or at least that's what the marketing is leading audiences to believe) and focusing on the character of Leatherface. We're not complaining, though; he is quite an iconic villain.
