Heather lives a normal life as a young 20-something individual, living with her boyfriend. One afternoon she receives a letter from a lawyer in Texas, explaining that she is the sole benefactor of her grandmother's estate. A grandmother she never knew existed, Heather travels to Texas with her friends to collect her inheritance. On arrival Heather soon discovers her inheritance isn't exactly ideal, as the chainsaw-wielding killer known as Leatherface is part of the reward. John Luessenhop's Texas Chainsaw is the epitome of what is wrong with the current state of mainstream Horror films. The film is ridiculously violent but not even in a creative or fun way, as it seems to just go through the motions doing what it thinks audiences want to see. Every horror trope is fulfilled in spades with my favorite being how the film spends the time to show how terrible of a person every character is directly before they die. If being an incredibly generic and bland horror film wasn't bad enough, Texas Chainsaw essentially degrades the original completely with this stupid plot centered around feuding families with the last living bloodline of the Sawyer family being Heater. Hollywood's typical prejudice viewpoint of the deep south is in full effect, making for a movie that isn't scary but more effective as a comedy. This is the worst horror film I have seen in a long time, I don't have anything else to say.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
