“Texas Chainsaw Massacre” is a requel (remake/sequel) of the horror movie “The Chainsaw Massacre.” This one stars Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Elsie Fisher (Castle Rock), Mark Burnham (Lowlife), Olwen Fouere (Zone 414), and Moe Dunford (Vikings).
A group of hipsters buy what they believe is an abandoned town to auction off the buildings and have their own utopia. It happens to not be totally abandoned and they unknowingly unleash the evil that is Leatherface. Now it’s a fight for survival as he goes on a killing spree.
I saw a review saying that someone saw the new “Halloween”, and they tried to do the same thing but with Leatherface. I don’t think you can sum it up any better. Just like Michael, Leatherface is now an old man, easily in his 70s and is seemingly unkillable. Just like Laurie Strode in Halloween an old woman from his past is the only one that can stop him. Not to mention both go on a gruesome murdering spree. I liked it though, Leatherface is my favorite of the original baddies (Michael, Jason, Freddy Krueger, and Ghostface). So, I was excited they came out with a new one. A cool little fact too, the chainsaw used in this one is the same that’s used in the original. If you’re a fan of horror, or The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies it’s worth watching. Sure, it’s cheesy in parts, but what slasher flick isn’t? I give it a 7/10.
