The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 ½

my first review of Hoop-Tober 2017

Look, this was dogshit. I’ve read a number of reviews on here calling it a satirical critique of Reaganomics or 80s Hollywood excess, and while some hints of those ideas may have seeped in by accident, the film is just incompetent.

I get it, it’s fun to do a deep read of a movie everybody thought was dogshit when it came out, but this is such unwatchable nonsense dogshit that I cannot believe a filmmaker who watched this and said “this is done, time to release this film” was exercising anywhere near the level of finesse required to pull off even heavy-handed satire. I’m glad y’all are having fun writing your reviews. This thing was written on the bus on the way to school.

Hey, at least Hoop-Tober 2017 has nowhere to go but up.
