In the late 1980s, someone made the decision to reboot the TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE franchise. Apparently, the general public was unhappy with the tongue-in-cheek direction of TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE PART 2. I had no problem when Leatherface dry-humped his girlfriend with a chainsaw in that movie. But whatever. The point is, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III was an attempt to get back to the gritty roots of the original 1974 film. In order to achieve this, Leatherface was given a Speak 'N' Spell. That's my recommendation. If you need more, take note that a pre-LORD OF THE RINGS Viggo Mortensen appears as Leatherface's brother. And yes, this is the TEXAS CHAINSAW movie with the teaser trailer that spoofed EXCALIBUR and assured the world that, "THE SAW IS FAMILY." REV IT UP. (Joseph A. Ziemba)
