Time Out says

Banned from general release by the BBFC on the grounds that it is excessively violent - and you'd have a hard time arguing the point. Blending the gritty, documentary quality of Tobe Hooper's original with the whacked-out psycho-comedy of Part II, Burr's darkly self-referential nightmare concerns a young couple's journey into the broiling Texan hinterlands, where Leatherface and his monstrously inbred companions await. Pursued by a jeepster from hell, covered in tanned and tortured human flesh, the 'normal' pair soon find themselves on the menu at a dinner engagement with the cannibal family: Leatherface, his two moronic brothers, feisty grandmother and corpulent grandfather, and the newest addition, a l2-year-old blond moppet who can't wait to get busy with the sledgehammer. While the on-screen gore is actually no more overt than in many mainstream horrors, what gives this its edge is the extent to which it revels in the atrocities depicted. A relentlessly sadistic and worryingly amusing movie, which will entertain and offend in equal measure.
