Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation

In this third sequel to slasher classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, four Texas teens are abducted by a family of psychos on their way home from the senior prom. Bloodshed, torture, and intrigue ensue. Barry (Tyler Cone) and Sean (John Harrison) meet their fates quickly, but semi-bimbo Heather (Lisa Newmyer) lasts long enough to be tortured and burned before having her head cracked open like a walnut by a mechanical leg. Meanwhile, sweet, befuddled Jenny (Renee Zellweger) actively resists her captors by stealing cars, breaking through windows, and jumping off roofs. Although Leatherface (Robert Jacks), the human skin-wearing transvestite based on real-life serial killer Ed Gein, is back on board, the cannibal cast this time out also includes several new characters, from bionic villain Vilmer (Matthew McConaughey) to trashy realtor Darla (Tonie Perensky) and literature-quoting flunky W.E. (Joe Stevens). The plot also adds an X-Files-esque conspiracy to the basic Chainsaw concept in the form of deformed businessman Rothman (James Gale), who descends on the family of killers to critique their torture techniques. Written and directed by original Massacre scribe Kim Henkel, the film appeared at 1995 festivals in a 104-minute cut under the title The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre; after actors Zellweger and McConaughey became Hollywood stars, the film was re-titled, re-cut, and given a limited theatrical release in August of 1997. The nine minutes of deleted footage included scenes of Jenny's troubled home life. Both versions included brief cameos from Marilyn Burns, Paul Partain, and John Dugan -- all of whom appeared in Tobe Hooper's original film. Prodigious litigation preceded the film's re-release, although both the McConaughey and Zellweger camps denied attempting to block its release. The film's soundtrack includes a who's who of local Texas bands.

This movie of the last Texas Chainsaw Massacre is the worst movie ever. Leather is a dragqueen in the movie and he is sacred out of his life of the people when he is about to kill them. If you expect the gore, strong killing, and the suspense do not get this move because it dose not have nothing like what you want.

What in the hell were they thinking when they made this piece of garbage! They totally ruined the series. They ruined LEATHERFACE. I only purchased this one to complete the collection. why, why oh why did the director who helped create the original ruin the franchise. Not even Matthew Mchonaughy's performance could salvage this piece of trash. would have given it no stars but one was the lowest you could go.

The new version was even better! It is in theaters now and I went to see it Sunday October19,2003. It was the best scary movie ever that I have watched. Though I need to see the old version.

I think this version of Texas Chainsaw was a spoof. I thought it was funny, particularly seeing Reene Zellweger chased, knocked around and thrown all over the place. It was just insanity on film at the least. I don't believe film was made to be a horrific classic Chainsaw film. Watch it again from a different point of veiw. I think some of it will make you laugh.
