Review rate : D

“..the most frightening thing about the franchise at this point is that it just keeps on going, undaunted by the characteristics by which the first film made its name..”
by William Goss [Film.com]
“..surprisingly clever when it comes to subversively shifting audience sympathies during the final 30 minutes of their briskly paced 92-minute pic..”
by Joe Leydon [Variety]
0.5 of 4

“..outright stupidity, though, comes less from adherence to formula than from the third act, which features so much unbelievable behavior from so many different characters that it's as if the script is actively courting derisive laughter..”
by Nick Schager [Slant Magazine]
2 of 4

“..logic was never a strong point of this series, but a few smarts would be nice..”
by Peter Howell [Toronto Star]
“..in-your-face 3D and a halfhearted attempt at psychological complexity add little to this umpteenth Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie..”
by Frank Scheck [Hollywood Reporter]
1 of 5

“..I'd label the picture a disappointment, but there really hasn't been a striking "Chainsaw" entry since 1974..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]
Review rate : C+

“..a particularly painful, almost sacrilegious defilement..”
by Scott Tobias [A.V. Club]

45 YEARS :

“..it is supremely intelligent and moving and Rampling and Courtenay are superb..”
by Peter Bradshaw [The Guardian]

A WALK IN THE WOODS :

“..A Walk in the Woods is a jolly good time, sparking dozens of chuckles and a few strong laughs. Nothing special cinematically, it still provides a welcome showcase for wonderful star..”
by Todd McCarthy [Hollywood Reporter]

WAR ROOM :

“..are so heavy on broad pulpit pounding that it's challenging to get swept along by the story's message..”
by Tom Russo [Boston Globe]

ZIPPER :

“..on all counts, "Zipper" comes up short..”
by Katharine Pushkar [NY Daily News]

7 CHINESE BROTHERS :

“..feels like an homage to the early work of Wes Anderson with its plinky soundtrack, solipsistic banter and emphasis on uniforms..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]

TURBO KID :

“..it feels like amateur hour, but for fans of low-rent thrills it's kind of fun..”
by Soren Andersen [Seattle Times]

WHEN ANIMALS DREAM :

“..rich with tone but otherwise lacking bite..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

POD :

“..a highly effective tale of terror that does a nice job of setting an unsettling tone from the onset and very rarely lets up until the film's conclusion..”
by Heather Wixson [Dailydead]

#LUCKY NUMBER :

“..obviously "#Lucky Number" will not appeal to everyone but for those that do find it entertaining, they will not be disappointed..”
by James McDonald [Irish Film Critic]

Z FOR ZACHARIAH :

“..the dramatic tension considerably less, in a movie that feels stranded somewhere between serious artistic ambition and the dystopian franchise-building of "The Hunger Games," "Divergent," et al..”
by Scott Foundas [Variety]
