At the weekend, I went to see Texas Chainsaw 3D, the latest film in the “Chainsaw” franchise. I, naturally, loved it; some of my friends didn’t. It wasn’t by any stretch the best in the series, but it was a good horror movie. I think one of the issues is that it’s in 3D. I’m not a massive fan of 3D movies – it works for things like Disney Pixar films, but I actually think its detrimental to, for example, slasher films. There’s something about a chainsaw slicing through somebody’s torso causing the blood and flesh to splatter outwardly at the audience in all its three-dimensional glory that is more funny than scary.

Texas Chainsaw 3D is great as a direct sequel to the original 1974 film…it tries its hardest to continue the story in a unique way, that offers plenty of possibility to churn out a few more films as well. I’m happy with that. However, put it up against Tobe Hooper’s original masterpeice, and Michael Bay’s remake and prequel, and it falls slightly short. Check out my review for it for Baylis Media (who kindly tweeted it to Lionsgate films!!!):
