Writer’s Opinion

The movie feels much more of a betrayal with the original film instead of a welcoming addition. It is packed with dumb characters, has no plot, nonsensical, and will leave you with that strong feeling that you are just wasting your time while watching it.

The cinematography, production, and the pacing during the first half was impressive, despite the folly of the plot which had been clearly a means of setting up the smorgasbord of fodder to the Leatherface. The humanization of a character was refreshing and palpable and that everything disintegrated during the second half, wherein the movie followed every horror trope, then an up with the most obvious plot hole and the laughable absence of reality. However, the primary half had the typical local hick that is anticipated as one of the antagonists. Lots of the shots, particularly in the scene from the sunflower field, had been shy of the beautiful in a horrible way. The entire bus scene was mutually fun in a satirical manner, disturbingly gruesome, and what preceded it had made absolutely nonsense.
