Leatherface: the Texas Chainsaw Massacre III

Leatherface: the Texas Chainsaw Massacre III

Jeff Burr (1990)

18 Certificate


Our Score
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.


A couple driving through the backwoods of Texas survive a series of disturbing experiences, and end up turning to a survivalist for help in avoiding the violent locals. However, all three are pursued onto the estate of a family of cannibalistic serial killers. Horror sequel, with Kate Hodge, Ken Foree, William Butler and Viggo Mortensen.
