In Newt, Texas, for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family -- or so they thought. Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion's dank cellars...
Horror - This is not a sequel to the fairly recent horror remake nor another
series reboot entirely but a direct sequel to the original 1974 film.
As expected, this has a lot of bloody, graphic gore that would be
all the more intense for kids in 3D. The one name star is R&B star
Trey Songz in his first major film role, but his is a distinctly
supporting role. The target audience is, as the horror norm, older
teens and young adults, particularly males.
OPINION OVERVIEW The following is the original "What's Worth
Watching" write-up for this movie.
Based on a theater exit polling of 26 moviegoers:
We can never seem to collect very many reviews for horror/slasher films. The younger audience they attract are not very interested in filling out our questionnaire.
TEENS:The three male reviews are too mixed to be of any help. One loved it, one rated it average and one hated it. The female reviews are pretty good. Five of the seven indicated they enjoyed "Texas Chainsaw 3D" very much. The other two rated it average and below average.
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Again, the reviews are very mixed for both the males and females. One-third of the males loved it, one-third rated it average and one-third rated it below average. Two of the seven females loved it and the rest rated it average.
ADULTS:Unfortunately, there are too few adult reviews to be of much help. One male rated it average and the other rated it above average. The one female loved "Texas Chainsaw 3D."
