Leatherface: the Texas Chainsaw Massacre III
Film Review
Reviewed By
3 out of 5

Gory, graphic, gruesome and bloody hilarious, director Jeff Burr's second sequel to Tobe Hooper's classic gut-wrencher combines the suffocating atmosphere of the original with the razor-sharp black comedy of Hooper's second reworking. Kate Hodge and William Butler are the ingenuous tourists who this time take a backwoods detour and end up being prospective sausage filler thanks to Leatherface and his splatter happy family of cannibals. More provocative and taboo-busting than the first two entries in the censor-upsetting series, strong stomachs are a requirement for the tense grip this powerful charnel house of extreme horror exerts.

Plot Summary

Horror starring Kate Hodge and featuring Viggo Mortensen. A couple driving to Florida find themselves waylaid in the lonely Texas wilds when they are targeted by crazies at a gas station and then have their vehicle run off the road by a truck. But this is just the beginning of their troubles.
