Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"For those who saw the first two Massacres, this will seem pretty much deja-boo!"
‑ Richard Harrington, Washington Post
"Lacks the clarity and identity of the earlier 1974 and 1986 installments."
‑ Dustin Putman, DustinPutman.com
"The blade is dull, but there's just enough to make it worth watching."
‑ Staci Layne Wilson, About.com
"It's really just another generic slasher flick with nothing beyond the Leatherface connection to recommend it to discerning fans."
‑ Chris Parcellin, Film Threat
"I much preferred it over the second film..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's certainly a cut above the standard late-'80s horror film, though hardly up to the level of Tobe Hooper's original."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"A failed attempt by New Line to reinvent the titular chainsawer into a Freddy Krueger-style villain."
‑ Nick Schager, Lessons of Darkness
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
"...a typically underwhelming horror sequel..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Taken as a separate entity, this is a competently packaged horror movie that plays by the rules and delivers what the title promises: sadistic killers, whimpering victims, and chainsaws."
‑ , TV Guide's Movie Guide
"Director Burr should never have shouted 'Cut.'"
‑ Steve Crum, Kansas City Kansan
"Believe it or not, even horror movie fans like some meat in their stories. You should pardon the expression."
‑ Chris Hicks, Deseret News, Salt Lake City
