15 Worst Horror Films Of The 21st Century (So Far)

15. Texas Chainsaw 3D

Texas Chainsaw 3d
We've seen some disappointing Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequels, but none have come close to the betrayal of Texas Chainsaw 3D. It's a complete embarrassment to the name. The most recent installment follows a baby from the original Sawyer family named Heather who survived the events of the first movie. In 2012, Heather is in her early 20s, even though she was a baby in 1974 (how does that math work, exactly?). Heather inherits a house from her mysterious, unseen grandmother, and when she and her friends arrive there, they make a lot of dumb decisions and Leatherface attacks. It's as uninspired a plot as possible. These characters are so stupid that one of the first things they do is leave a hitchhiker they just met to look after their house. Of course, he immediately starts looting it. None of the kills are any good, the 3D gimmick is forced, and Leatherface is suddenly made into a sympathetic character rather than a terrifying psychopath. In the last act, he starts protecting Heather once he realises they're related, and Heather suddenly turns on her friends because she finds out Leatherface is her cousin. It didn't seem possible to ruin the franchise any more, but John Luessenhop pulled it off.

Lover of horror movies, liker of other things. Your favorite Friday the 13th says a lot about you as a person, and mine is Part IV: The Final Chapter.
