This spends a lot of its meandering running time avoiding being a TCM movie altogether. There’s so much ambling around in the woods which never seem as expansive or cavernous enough to justify all the characters constantly splitting apart and wandering aimlessly around them. Clearly butchered by studio hands and hastily stitched back together, Leatherface is a classic example of a studio trying to cash in on a brand while totally forgetting to retain the brand itself. Fine for a laugh and has enough madcap shenanigans to warrant a few rewatches over the years but as far as Texas Chainsaw Massacres go, this one feels more like a petty flesh wound.
Watched on Warner Archive blu-ray.
