Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
After the first massacre in 1974, the townspeople suspected that the Sawyer family were responsible. A vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer house, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family. Decades later, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from her grandmother. She decides to bring her friends along on the road trip to investigate her inheritance. On arrival, she discovers she has inherited a mansion, but is yet to uncover the terrors that lurk in the basement underneath it. Written by
A draft of the script had Leatherface's name being Jebadiah Sawyer. However, this was later changed to Jedidiah Sawyer. In the 2003 remake, Jedidiah is the name of a young member of the Hewitt family. See more »

January is the time of the year that I see as a dead period for great movie releases. As I look at box office results nothing seems to impress me, unless they are December releases or Oscar nominated movies. For the past two years, the first major release of the year was a horror film, and in 2013, Texas Chainshaw 3D was the example. Watching this movie I knew exactly what I was experiencing: an escapism flick. This is the kind of movie I view whenever I wanna have a fun evening getting off from watching blood splatter all over the place. The acting is as you'd expect average, the direction textbook horror and the film as a whole serves its purpose of arousing horror junkies who enjoy these films. I haven't watched all the movies of the series and I didn't watch it in 3D (which I hear wasn't that good), still I managed to enjoy myself, as i just sat back and spent a good time.
