The R-Rated Horror Movie You Probably Forgot Starring Alexandra Daddario

The seventh film of the Franchise “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, simply titled “Texas Chainsaw” (or “Texas Chainsaw 3D”), was released in 2013 – and featured none other than Alexandra Daddario. Directed by John Luessenhop, the film picks up after the events of the original 1974 film and follows Heather (Daddario), a young woman who travels to Newt, Texas to visit a property she inherited from an unknown relative. There, she and her friends face the horror and wrath of Leatherface (Dan Yeager), the infamous killer from the “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” film series.

“Texas Chainsaw” unfortunately wasn’t very well received (which may be why some viewers forgot about this particular Daddario film). As of this writing, the film only holds a 19% Tomatometer score on rotten tomatoes. The viewership rating is only slightly more forgiving and sits at 40%. Many critics noted that the film was an unnecessary addition to a series of films. Additionally, many other critics also complained about the film for reasons specific only to the 2013 iteration.

Jennifer Heaton Alternate lens wrote, “Continuing where the first left off? Good idea. Filling the movie with unlikable characters, silly twists and broken continuity? Terrible idea.” Additionally, Mark Olsen of Los Angeles Times wrote, “The original ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ leaves audiences feeling drained, dispirited and dissolute.” Texas Chainsaw 3D “is just a shame to be a big nothing.”
