This sixth entry brings the TCM franchise within shouting distance of the nine-film Halloween and Friday the 13th cycles—but you can shout all you want, no one's gonna help you. The demented Leatherface gets a suitably slimy genesis story: born in a slaughterhouse and plucked out of the trash by the hardscrabble Hewitt family, he finds happiness chopping beef for a living before he loses his job and goes looking for alternate slabs of meat. The balance of the movie more or less restages Tobe Hooper's 1974 original, including its much-loved family dinner scene. Jonathan Liebesman directed; with Jordana Brewster and R. Lee Ermey. R, 90 min.
