Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022, dir. David Blue Garcia)

Gentrifiers seeking to invest in a Texas ghost town provoke the residents. Uneven belated sequel, taking the 2018 Halloween as inspiration. Some gleeful gore and a couple of sly gags and visual moments, but Leatherface is entirely justified here, and huge chunks of the movie have neither sense nor logic.

Here’s the trailer.

Leatherface (2017, dir. Julien Maury & Alexandre Bustillo)

An origin story, tenuously linked to Chainsaw 3D. And not a very good one. Clumsy scripting, awkward directorial choices, continuity errors, and an inconsistent tone mar this prequel. Veterans Dorff and Taylor do what they can to add a little class.
