I recall that I went today to see Texas Chainsaw 3D, made as a sort of a direct sequel to the very original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. To some degree it made the character Leatherface seem quite fearful and also a being that one might have sympathy for. However a trail of blood that went on for quite a distance in the film possibly went on too far to fill up one body and certainly too much for the body in the state that it was found.
There were a few other things that just didn't ring right with the story but it was a brave attempt and the director had the original house rebuilt for the movie rather than something that looked like the remains of the house next door in the original movie. It certainly wasn't a cheesy piece of rubbish, it was much more interesting that the Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake even.
I actually enjoyed the film for what it was, along with the unfolding drama, it didn't leaveme wondering if I could have spent the time doing something else such as stare at the wall or through a window, but a little while later the film seemed more and more meaningless as a memory. It didn't quite have the bite of the original but this seemed to be a serious attempt at a different sort of a movie.
Maybe the sequel to this movie might do away with the events of this Texas Chainsaw 3D completely to look as if it might have a sequel worth watching because the story didn't really set itself up for any sort of an interesting follow up movie, unless I totally missed something.
