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
Although she has a rule against appearing nude in films and will only do a nude scene for a TV series if she is paid well, Alexandra Daddario offered to film the scene where she is tied up and has her shirt ripped completely topless, but filmmakers refused, thinking that it would be gratuitous. For some reason though, in the final version of the scene her character is shown to be braless even though it's clearly obvious that before and after the scene she still wears her black bra.

During the opening standoff, a Dodge Diplomat squad car is visible. Diplomats were produced from the 1980s into the early-'90s. See more »
You are not going to watch Texas Chainsaw and expect a classic unless you are seriously deluded. You do get what you expect which is plenty of gore, a far fetched story line and a mindlessly enjoyable film.
This is no acting masterclass although to be fair the cast are not bad at all. Alexandra Daddario is nice to watch and the supporting cast do their best with limited material.
This is a slasher movie and you get your moneys worth of gore and a few pretty tense scenes.
As an easy to watch slasher this works pretty well, it moves along at a swift pace, has all the elements you'd expect in this type of film and is well executed. All in all it's better than I thought and worth a viewing for genre fans.
