Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"The original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" leaves audiences feeling hollowed out, dispirited and dissolute. "Texas Chainsaw 3D" is simply a bummer for being a big nothing."
‑ Mark Olsen, Los Angeles Times
"All the makers of "Texas Chainsaw 3D" cared about was getting your $16."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"Characters usually suffer their terrible fates through blatant stupidity."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Common Sense Media
"With acting that falls way under the bar, poorly written characters, a ten year gap that everyone ignores, and a pretty laughable storyline, Texas Chainsaw is somewhat watchable thanks to the legacy its built on that it nearly pisses all over."
‑ Chris Sawin, Examiner.com
"Texas Chainsaw immediately establishes itself as a significant improvement over the various other entries in this enduring franchise..."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"As pointless as one feared it might be."
‑ Nigel Floyd, Time Out
"Try as [Luessenhop] might to honor the original -- flashbulb transitions, a skeevy (yet buff) hitchhiker, metal doors, and meat hooks -- there's little of its mounting dread."
‑ Pete Vonder Haar, Village Voice
"embarrasses a horror icon"
‑ James Luxford, The National
"There's a great deal of potential in the approach. The execution, however, is half-baked and half-assed."
‑ Bill Gibron, Film Racket
"The equivalent of filmic road kill ... An abridged version of the original, rendered in bad 3D, serves as a pre-credit set-up and makes us long for the real deal."
‑ Glenn Lovell, CinemaDope
"Alexandra Daddario, playing a distant Leatherface cousin set to inherit the manor (and manner), continues her sad career in unbuttoned bondage, and the 3-D effects are especially ruinous."
‑ Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out New York
"An effort is made to provide some character definition for Leatherface, which is probably a mistake. He's much scarier as a cipher."
‑ Peter Howell, Toronto Star
"The gore is plentiful, the acting is solid, and Leatherface is a monster once again."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It deserves a modicum of credit for actually making you despise a chainsaw-wielding maniac less than a bunch of lowlife redneck scum."
‑ Steve Newton, Georgia Straight
"You may think that after six movies that there would be nothing left to say on the topic of Texas chainsaw massacres, and you would be right."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
