Based loosely on the true events that inspired both the original "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and the Oscar-Winning "The Silence of the Lambs," the new film centers around a group of college kids on their way back from Mexico heading to a Lynyrd Skynyrd concert in Dallas. Along the way they come into contact with the serial killer Leatherface who proceeds to try and kill them with his chainsaw. Starring Jessica Biel ("The Illusionist," "I Now Pronounce You Chuck & Larry"), Jonathan Tucker ("The Ruins," "100 Girls"), Erica Leerhsen ("Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2," "Wrong Turn 2: Dead End"), and Mike Vogel ("Cloverfield," "Poseidon").
Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: An unnecessary remake that's more gory and less scary than the original.
Hard to do worse than this extremely gory mess.
