    Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III Movie Review

    I’ve never been a big fan of horror movies.

    However, I’ve really liked the old 50s horror movies and the Halloween franchise for a long time, but not really any other movies.

    But for some reason, I’ve warmed up to the idea of checking some more horror movies out in the last few years.

    This includes the Nightmare on Elm Street movies, Friday the 13th movies, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies.

    I’m still discovering these, and for the most part, I’ve enjoyed them.

    I have yet to watch all of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, but I will.

    I’ve only seen the first 3 (reviews of 1 and 2 are here) and here is my review of the 3rd movie.

    I heard that this movie was not that great and that a lot of editing was done to this movie.

    But after seeing the Unrated version (I did not watch the Theatrical version because it seemed to just be shorter.) I enjoyed it.

    It was more serious in tone than the 2nd one and seemed to try to get back to more of how the first movie is.

    None of these I’m sure will have the legacy or impact the first one has, but again, I enjoyed this.

    If you’re a fan of 1 and/or 2, you should see this.

    Again, I don’t know why I’m becoming a horror movie fan, but I am.

    I look forward to discovering more.

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Movie Review

    Director Tobe Hooper, who made the first The Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie, returns with this long awaited sequel to the 1974 horror movie classic.

    Spoiler alert:  More killing from Leatherface and his family happen in this movie.

    Dennis Hopper plays a Texas Ranger bent on seeking revenge on the Sawyer family, consisting of Leatherface, Chop-Top (played by Bill Mosely), Cook (played by James Siedow, who is the one returning cast member from the first movie), and Grandpa.  A radio DJ is also involved in helping Hopper.

    The first movie is much more a real scary thriller but with a documentary feel to it.

    This movie is still wild, but it’s not meant to be taken seriously.

    As grotesque as it gets at times, it’s just a fun horror movie, I think.

    If you like the first movie, you should like this one.  Maybe more so, who knows.
