Texas Chainsaw Massacre Viewers All Have The Same Complaint About Reboot's Plot

The new reboot of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre was released on Friday (February 18th) and while fans were excitement for the new instalment, many had the same complaint about its plot line – or lack of it.

The latest film in the horror franchise picks up several decades after the events of the original film and sees a new bunch of unwitting teenagers come face-to-face with cannibalistic serial killer Leatherface.

In January, Netflix gave fans a taster of the terrifying situations the new characters were about to face at the hands of Leatherface and also showed the return of original survivor Sally Hardesty to the small Texan town of Harlow.

In light of the film’s release, viewers applauded its gore and fright factor on Twitter. Yet many appeared to be in unison when they complained about how the storyline lacked “common sense”.

One viewer penned: “That new Texas Chainsaw Massacre doesn’t make a lick of sense. The foundation of the story lacks common sense. The story wasn’t believable.”

“I think Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2022) is ok movie...that is the overall plot is bad, but the gore is fantastic,” another penned. “I like the point that Leatherface doesn't leave the house until one of the main characters do.”

A third added: “The movie actually had me shaking the entire time! Really gory, could’ve been a better plot at least.” 

“#TexasChainsawMassacre Horrific in terms of Story, fake feminism that was stupid as hell, wokeness was all over splattered. 1/10 tbh,” a fan commented.

Another viewer remarked: “No story, blood and guts galore! Give me the original anyday #TexasChainsawMassacre #Leatherface”.

“Watched #TexasChainsawMassacre & I'm FUMING! 4 ppl who know horror and are familiar w/ Texas the original, this follow up was complete trash & a disrespect to the first movie,” a fan of the original flick fumed.

“The plot centers on a ‘progressive’ group of young adults but the movie is far 4rm progressive. #netflix”.

Ouch!

Texas Chainsaw Massacre is available to stream now on Netflix.
