Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) ***

I seem to recall Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) being a better entry in the series than this. The tone is really uneven in this film — it can't seem to decide if it's truly grim or going for laughs (unlike the first film, which is full on grim and the second film which is full on comedy). There's definitely some disturbing violence but the scenes still cut away during the most graphic parts. What we get is a solid horror film but one that doesn't add anything new to the franchise (and none of the subsequent entries has either, though I still like the fourth one).
