Movie director John Luessenhop completely missed the memo when it came to the remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Originally going into a scary movie you would expect loud screams, gory scenery, and an ‘at the edge of your seat’ feeling but this one is not like that. The new sequel to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre has nothing to offer in comparison to the original work done by Tobe Hooper. John Luessenhop’s adaptations failed from the original. The word ‘massacre’ was even removed from the title. Texas Chainsaw 3D starts off where the original movie ended. They begin by showing how much hatred the towns people had for the Sawyer family and their cannibalistic (leatherface) family member. Concluding their rage the towns’ people burned the Sawyer home with all of them in it. It was believed that the disasters had stopped and they were all heroes until the main character, Heather, came long. To her surprise and those of the towns’ people she was a long lost Sawyer. John Luessenhop thought he would remake this movie to be compared if not better than the original but the three dimensional effects, thrills, and suspense made this movie a waste of $15.00 for all of those who watched it in theaters.
The 2012-2013 movie lists were very broad when it came to 3D films. It was a huge discouragement watching Texas Chainsaw 3D because it lacked the three dimensional effects itself. Critic Joe Neumaier from Daily News commented, “The only thing that jumps out during “Texas Chainsaw 3D” is a few shots of the titular portable mechanical tool, though the technology here makes “Jaws 3-D” look like “Avatar.” Joe instantly displays a lack of interest for the movie’s technological input. As I would agree, having paid $15.00 for a three dimensional movie I would expect a bit more than just 2-4 pop outs of the chainsaw throughout the whole 92 minutes of the film. Sadly, that wasn’t the only failure throughout this movie.
Texas Chainsaw 3D is a failed remake...
