they/them. theatre major. james mcavoy stan.
my ratings have very little rhyme or reason!!
I'm not a big fan of gratuitous gore (this film certainly called for some, but I felt it was too excessive), so I don't think I like it as much as other people have.
That being said, I still recognize and believe that it's a decent movie. It's not for me but certainly will be for others.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
It is much more nuanced than I expected! I was expecting a much more cut-and-dry slasher movie, but the dinner scene completely blew it out of the water! I was not expecting for anyone but Leatherface to be in on it (not even the hitchhiker, to be honest... but I guess I’m just a little oblivious). The ending but with him swinging the chainsaw around aimlessly was spooky.
Overall, I enjoyed it! I am going to have to do more research, but I can confidently give it a decent rating.
