Following in the more serious footsteps of the original TCM and abadoning the campy comedy of the first sequel, this third Chainsaw movie (written by David J. Schow, directed by Jeff Burr) depicts a couple (Kate Hodge and William Butler) on a cross country trip falling prey to Leatherface and his new family of cannibals. However, Hodge and Butler run into a survivalist (Ken Foree) who is on his way into the woods for a weekend of military/survival training and is slightly prepared to deal with the situation. Not much of this storyline is different from the original except for how the victims end up stranded in Leatherface’s territory, and that the cannibal family is much larger. Hodge ends up being the girl invited to supper this time, watching her boyfriend get gutted like a pig while she’s nailed to a chair. Finally she escapes, and there’s a battle between Foree and Leatherface in a swamp used to dump unwanted body parts. If you’re a fan of the series or want something you don’t see everyday, I reccomend you check this out.rnSide Note: Kane Hodder of Jason fame did stuntwork as Leatherface in this one. Also, look for the unrated version, as the R-rated has been edited to exclude a lot of gore.
