Horror movie remakes have been on the rise in recent years as Hollywood has realized just how profitable they can be. In the last few years alone, we’ve gotten reboots/sequels/updates of It, The Invisible Man, Candyman, Halloween, Child’s Play, and Scream, to name a few. Even Universal is taking another stab at remaking The Exorcism.
The latest attempt at capturing the flame of an old horror franchise is Netflix’s recent Texas Chainsaw Massacre, which hit the streaming service on Friday, February 18. While most of the recent horror reboots have been, at the very least, passable, this latest entry in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre — a direct sequel to 1974’s iconic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre — is apparently anything but as horror fans have taken to Twitter to share just how awful they think it is.
the 2022 version of Texas Chainsaw Massacre might be without a doubt the biggest piece of dogshit i’ve ever watched

TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE (2022) is as bad as some of y’all think HALLOWEEN KILLS is.

The horror community has spoken and reviews for the new #TexasChainsawMassacre have arrived.
In a surprising turn, it’s the worst movie ever made. Also it’s the greatest movie ever made.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre stinks like a basement full of corpses as Leatherface becomes just another hulking villain — not exactly the fresh start franchise diehards might have otherwise welcomed. Our review: https://t.co/Ypgr9KacZg pic.twitter.com/3MR719rKTW
