LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3 (1990 U.S.) D: JEFF BURR W: DAVID J. SCHOW P: ROBERT ENGELMAN
This is the best of the sequels, but that`s not really saying much. The female lead and her boyfriend are hunted by the cannibal clan while travelling cross-country. Leatherface (who has a new gold chainsaw with The Saw Is Family inscribed on the blade) is more like a kid here, and there`s some other new members of the family, including a little girl and Viggo Mortensen as Tex. At least grampa`s back (along with grandma in a wheelchair with a voicebox). With Marilyn Burns. In it`s full Director`s Cut form there are some choice gore scenes that make it worthwhille. But most people will see the tame re-edited and re-shot version put together by New Line after Burr was fired. Kane Hodder (Jason in some FRIDAY THE 13TH sequels) was Stunt Co-Ordinator. RETURN OF THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE followed (unfortunately).
