There's a moment in the latest Texas Chainsaw movie where Leatherface—now referred to by the family name Jed Sawyer—throws his trademark weapon at a police officer, who moves out of the way so the chainsaw comes hurtling toward the camera. If you see it in 3D, the chainsaw almost looks like it's coming at you. That's the point of 3D and, apparently, the whole point of this movie. But what if you just see it in traditional 2D? It doesn't really matter, because the 3D is such a non-factor, anyway, and the film is irredeemable regardless of whether or not you spring for glasses. This time around, we learn of a long-lost relative (Alexandra Daddario) who moves into the Sawyer family home, unwittingly letting her homicidal cousin back into the wild. You expect bad movies in early January, and Texas Chainsaw 3D delivers.
