'Texas Chainsaw 3D' bleeding with gore


A metaphor for the dehumanizing aspects of contemporary technology? A sly commentary on drone warfare, you ask? If only.

With Heather’s boyfriend unfaithful and best friend promiscuous, the hitchhiker a thief and the other fellow a playboy/ operator type, well, their deaths can all be rationalized. The film has something of a late twist that won’t be given away here but needless to say, it sets up a sequel.

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.
