Much sawspoon in the air when entering this rather endaring netflix massacre movie, a mist of blood spreading bloodborne disease within a quater of a mile is just the least of concerns. Its can now easily be pronounced that netflix virginity as a safe and sound film site has been lost, simply because the graphic violence is crudly and utterly grotesque, and the grumpy old mans guts have been turned upside down many times outta disbelief and subnoxious fright. Ive seen a few of it kin over the years but this was some of the worst massacres ever filmatized in a safe environment, and let that be my warning if youre fainthearted or just a bit more sensible than your friend sitting next to you,you can avoid this if you want to.

Its a pitty though that it has a gloomy glow of good sets and filled with gadgets just like cut outta a texas tourism brochure that makes this a film that should be seen. The story and acting is what you expect according to the conseptual recipie, the score cuts deep into your groins, and as a blood and gore horror film it fulfill most of the genres criterias, even the grumpy old mans so its just like a sword it has two safe side and a cutting edge, hard to recommend.

If this were released in the 1990s at Blockbuster, I'm sure it'd have the biggest of stickers on the cover that stated: "BRAND NEW!" so people don't mix up the titles.

Well, I did have high expectations for this due to the wait and I was a huge fan of 2017's Leatherface. And it really didn't let me down. It was plenty GORE and BRUTALITY. But it also had a wacky plot with TONS of WTF & YEAH, RIGHT moments. And, all of this is on par for the TCM Franchise.

In yet ANOTHER Part 2 to the original, the OG survivor, Sally Lee Strode, returns to seek revenge on the big LF. But, LF is also on his own rampage and more ruthless, aggressive and murderous than he's ever been in the series thus far. I'd mention there are moronic young adults also in the mix so LF has targets, but they're just awful.

I really tried to get into the plot, but the more I thought about it and saw the huge holes, I got angrier. So, I did what I probably should've in the beginning. Watch it for what it is.

And DANG...yes, let loose, leave your brain at the door and get ready to be surprised and blown away.

But...also frustrated when that plot and character mistakes as big as Texas rushes back into your face. Kinda think of this as a Godzilla movie. You expect all the humans to make every mistake they possibly could, but you didn't come to a Godzilla movie for the puny humans.

Final Thoughts: Here's my ranking of the franchise from BEST to TRASH:

1. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) 2. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) 3. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006) 4. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (1986) 5. Leatherface (2017) 6. Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) 7. Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) 8. Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1995) 9. Texas Chainsaw 3D.

It's always hard to make a better flick then the original one and be honest, the original one is a classic.

Then came the franchise getting awry and terrible. Then came the reboots, they were okay and the next and the next and now Netflix decided to make a new TCM.

Was it all that bad, no 'cause it's really gory and nasty. The thing I got a problem with is the slaying on the bus. That was exaggerated. About the characters, yes I agree they are a mixed bunch of weirdo's but after all i did like it.

Why you ask, it clocks in under 90 minutes and that makes this flick over just before you know it.

Just after the rather good Scream reboot came this one. It's not that bad as most of the people do say. I enjoyed it, just looked throughout the main lead and yes, it's full of clichés and yes you have seen it all before but I did like it.

Gore 3/5 Nudity 0/5 Effects 3/5 Story 2,5/5 Comedy 0/5.

Right, well I have to say that I was somewhat skeptical about this 2022 movie "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" from writers Chris Thomas Devlin, Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues. Why? Well, let's just face it that the 2017 movie "Leatherface" wasn't exactly a great movie.

But as I had the opportunity to sit down and watch the latest addition to the franchise, of course I did so, as this is a horror/slasher movie that I hadn't already seen.

Well, director Jonathan Liebesman did deliver a more enjoyable and entertaining slasher movie here in 2022, so it was a step up from the somewhat abysmal "Leatherface" movie. And I will say that I was actually adequately entertained by the 2022 "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" movie.

There were a good amount of violence, mayhem, bloodshed and gore here, so an old gorehound like myself was definitely well satisfied. And especially the scene inside the bus was amazing. That scene alone makes it well worth sitting down to watch "Texas Chainsaw Massacre".

For the most part, then it was mainly unfamiliar faces on the cast list, with the occasional familiar face, but they did actually have some rather nicely cast actors and actresses on the cast list here. And it was certainly nice to see the likes of Alice Krige, Moe Dunford and William Hope in the movie.

I was entertained by "Texas Chainsaw Massacre", and pleasantly so. But then again, I was sitting down to watch the movie with zero expectations.

My rating of "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" lands on a six out of ten stars.

Almost fifty years have passed since the events depicted in the original 'The Texas Chain Saw Massacre' and in that time the chain saw wielding maniac dubbed 'Leatherface' was never identified. A new bunch of young adults has come to the remote corner of Texas; this time it is a group of entrepreneurs who have purchased an abandoned town with the intention of selling the various properties. Unfortunately they didn't realise that one building is still occupied by an elderly woman and her adult son... and she claims to have the deeds to the property. She collapses during the argument and dies on the way to hospital. Her son cuts off her face and wears it over his own... Leatherface is back! Once back in town he starts a killing spree that will see most characters meet a grisly death.

Back in 1973 Tobe Hooper set out to make a PG rated horror movie but, despite lacking gore or other events that might garner a higher rating managed to create one of the scariest films ever made... almost fifty years, and several sequels, later this film arrives and despite there being a lot of very gory deaths it doesn't come close to the scariness of the original. The story is solid enough although the basic set up is obviously just an excuse to have Leatherface pick up his chain saw and start killing again. The central group of characters is solid, especially sisters Melody and Lila and their friend Dante. While not everything happened quite as expected most key things that happen are hardly surprising. There are a couple of fairly weak attempts at comedy, such as characters trying to film Leather face on their phones rather than being terrified! These aren't enough to spoil the film though. For the most part it isn't that scary, although the final scenes do manage to produce some scares as one wonders whether the character set up as the obvious 'final girl' will actually be a survivor. The cast is decent enough; I particularly liked Sarah Yarkin and Elsie Fisher, who played Melody and Lila. At just over eighty minutes in length it certainly doesn't drag on too long; the makers are to be commended for not padding it out to two hours plus like some film makers seem to need to do even if the material doesn't justify it. Overall I wouldn't say this is a must see but it is worth watching if you are a fan of the slasher genre.

So I've never been to Texas but I believe when others say that they didn't shoot this in Texas. And hey why should they? Yes it is supposed to play there, but not to burst your bubble: movies are more often than not shot in entirely different locations than they actually appear to play at. I know: shocker (not).

Pun I guess somewhat intended above. Now I know, just by simply being nice and because I actually enjoyed the romp and the mayhem (and the massacre - remember it is a movie, you can easily make that distinction here). One thing that even those who didn't like it can't take away from the movie: the level of violence in it. So no Texas, but yes to Massacre ... and way yes to Chainsaw. Although there are scenes with it in the movie that might make you cringe.

The characters are not really likeable to say the least, the connection to the original is quite thin and most horror fans may not like the fact that our killer has a motive here. But there are also a lot of good things here, that you can find, if you look for them. Like the criticism of society and social media the I reckon already infamous bus scene involves.

Special (and blood) effects are off the hook (something that I reckon is missing from the original)! Know what to expect, get exactly that and be entertained (otherwise you'll probably regret watching this).
