“Leatherface” continues the proud tradition of building onto a film franchise that didn’t really need sequels. This 8th TCM film apparently got Lili Taylor onboard by saying it was like a horror version of Badlands. I almost feel bad for her. So much of the film spends its time trying to give Leatherface a back story. But, this has to be about the fourth back story for a guy that goes between deformed freak to edgy teenager.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre should’ve ended at Part 2. I know that there is a growing amount of “Leatherface” fans out there and WB Archive is obliging you guys in 2018. It’s just that after the Sawyer family died, why relaunch or keep trying to tell the same story? Leatherface was a fat hick with a human skin face. His family makes him do things that he doesn’t understand, but he performs out of loyalty. Did we need the extra kids that gave Stephen Dorff something to shoot at?
Honestly, I can’t remember seeing a more pointless film in 2017. This is coming from someone who saw that Amityville movie twice. Poor form, guys.
