Synopsis
Texas Chainsaw 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought.

Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars…

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

  1. The second mask he put on for the third act was acceptable. The one he wore for two thirds of the flick looked like frayed cardboard.

    • Honestly I couldn’t tell much of a difference between the two that he wore during the 1980s/90s/00s/whenever the hell it was suppose to be.

  2. Really?

    I thought the main mask in this one was better than the masks in part 2 and next generation.

    The one used in 2 looked more like an expensive brought halloween mask rather than actual mask of skin.

  3. The new mask I didn’t have an issue with. I only had an issue with the remake of the original mask in the prequel sequence; that looked far too much like plastic.

    Of the three here…first looks too Uruk-Hai/Neanderthal, second looks like part of his face is leather/he’s missing part of his face. Third looks fine, just the white color is a bit off putting.
