Leatherface and family destroyed the hefty weekend box office competition, including those pesky Hobbitses, bringing in $23 million.
This was a surprise to many considering the film score a 21% on the Tomato Meter. But, horror fans know what they like, and they clearly like Texas Chainsaw 3D - at least the younger ones.
“In an era where moviegoing has fallen off among teenagers and younger adults, Texas Chainsaw was an exception, with 63 percent of the audience under the age of 25. Among this demo, one out of three said a major draw was singer-songwriter Trey Songz, who stars in the film alongside Alexandra Daddario and Dan Yeager,” The Hollywood Reporter said.
Texas Chainsaw 3D is also unique in that 83% of fans watched it in 3D compared to the average of 50% for other films. Makes perfect sense. If given a choice, why wouldn’t you pick the one that offers gore flying at your face?
