Our Score
Leatherface is back, and in gloriously indifferent 3D for this semi-coherent, morally confused, clumsy and superfluous sequel. It offers more slicing and dicing by filmdom's favourite chainsaw-toting cannibal, who emerges implausibly from the basement of the old family home to butcher its new occupants. But there's a family tie, and blood ultimately proves thicker than slaughter. Almost 40 years separate this and Tobe Hooper's original everyday story of flesh-eating folk, but there's no Hooper this time and director John Luessenhop (Takers) fails to match the short, sharp shock of the 1974 classic. Instead, this is chock-full of missed opportunities, with precious little to satisfy even the most easily pleased of horror film fans. Clint Eastwood's son, Scott, has a prominent role, but this isn't something he'll want to write home about.

Summary

A murderous Texas family's killing spree is brought to an end by a vigilante mob. Years later, a woman inherits a house in the area, but when she and her friends visit the property, they discover the last survivor of the evil clan is lurking in the basement ready to start the slaughter all over again. Horror sequel, starring Alexandra Daddario and Dan Yeager.
