For those who saw the first two Massacres, this will seem pretty much deja-boo!

Lacks the clarity and identity of the earlier 1974 and 1986 installments.

The blade is dull, but there's just enough to make it worth watching.

Antagony & Ecstasy

It's certainly a cut above the standard late-'80s horror film, though hardly up to the level of Tobe Hooper's original.

Lessons of Darkness

A failed attempt by New Line to reinvent the titular chainsawer into a Freddy Krueger-style villain.
