David Blue Garcia directs Elsie Fisher, Sarah Yarkin and Moe Dunford in the legacy sequel to the gory horror classic where a group of annoying influencers buy up the town Leatherface has been hiding out in.
You’d think there be some entertainment value in seeing such a repugnant bunch of youths chopped to bits but the scares don’t land and the cast is a bit too soft and pleasing to deserve their characters’ fates. Not that I’d want to watch a movie where any more of this lot survive. It just all feels out of sync, whenever the visuals are good the pace drops, whenever the kills get giddy, you question the set-up. Pass.
