Cast Members of Note- Pihla Viitala, Terrence Anderson, Miranda Hennessy, and Leatherface himself, Gunnar Hansen.
Leatherface is now a retired movie maniac, and spends his golden years captaining a boat that offers whale-watching tours in Iceland. These days, he's all silver haired and wise looking, and it seems as if he's left his murderous past behind. Good for him!
It's a bit choppy and awkward throughout, and most of the plot elements and characters were borrowed from other genre movies (TCM, Wrong Turn, etc...), but it was bloody enough and fun enough to make us happy in the end. There's even a part that made me laugh pretty hard; be on the lookout for the "I'll be right back, don't you move!" scene involving the rapist deckhand... Oh no he didn't! Oh yes he did, and I LOL'd. Hard.
It's also of note to mention that Horror Legend Gunnar Hansen (TCM's original Leatherface), makes an appearance in this movie as the Tour Boat Captain. I never realized he was from Iceland (because who the hell ever is, you know?) and it was a neat little surprise to see him show up in this one.

Pihla Viitala, but that doesn't mean we don't love you.
