Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the newest entry in the long running franchise, takes the recent Halloween route ignoring all the sequels after the original.  However instead of doing anything interesting with the conceit David Blue Garcia’s film is total misfire on multiple levels.  Garcia’s disposable and forgettable film comes off as rushed and a haphazard cash in on the franchise name.  The nonsensical script from Fede Álvarez and Rodo Sayagues does nothing but prop up dislikable characters who are nothing more than meat for the grinder.  The main hook here is supposed to be its connection to the original film but for some reason it decides to make Sally, the lone survivor from the original, nothing more than an afterthought and giving her an utterly unsatisfying resolution.  The plot’s only purpose is to serve up mindless blood and gore while ignoring any semblance of a coherent, logical story that ties this entry to the original film.  This iteration Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a disappointing revival which will be forgotten as soon as its finished.
