I took one look at the cover of this movie and nearly coughed up blood. In my mind, Matthew McConnaghey(whatever his name is) and Renee Zellweger DO NOT belong in my Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies. It seems downright blasphemous.. until you watch it.
This movie is highly hilarious. Here's your summary:
Four teens(including Zellweger) go on an after prom ride into the boonies, only to find a nearly dead kid on the road. The teens split up to find help with a broken flash-light, only to run into a crazy redneck(McConnaughey) and his equally crazy family. Hijinx ensue.
The old chainsaw family is replaced with a new one which, while my purist side balks, is almost equal to the original characters. Here we have McConnaughey as a crazy mofo with a robotic leg, his quote-spouting brother, his lusty and very battered wife, and, of course, good old Leather. A winning combination.
Most TCM fans are angered by the inclusion of Leatherface cross-dressing, and I can't blame them. If the thought of that turns you green, stay away from this movie. I, however, can't argue with Leatherface doing the chainsaw dance in a dress, no sir.
This movie is definetely not for purists;. I would, however, recommend it as a good time. Some times you have to be afraid of angry retarded men with chainsaws, and sometimes you have to laugh with them. This movie is for your laughs.

"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation" (or "The Return Of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" as it is also known) sits in my DVD collection, along with the other "T.C.M." movies, for one simple reason: It is easily the most vexing and confusing horror movie in the entire history of cinema. Think about it. Co-scribe of the original "Texas Chainsaw Massacre," Kim Henkel, sat behind the director's chair and made the complete opposite of what fans want from these movies. It makes no sense. Is this some sort of afterbirth from the original movie? Or is it just a very twisted and comedic remake? No one knows. I don't know. You don't know. I pray everyday that they will release a DVD edition of this movie with commentary from Henkel himself, just so we can all know what this movie was supposed to be. Because we know it isn't scary. You can't watch this movie and be scared, it just doesn't work. And it's only funny in the "so bad it's good" vein. There is not one single moment where you fear for a character's life, and when we are supposed to care, the people in peril don't care -- one character, being pursued by a member of Leatherface's clan stops to catch his breath and says something to the effect of "Please stop, you're scaring me." And don't even get me started on the portrayal of Leatherface himself in this one. The story revolves around a group of good looking teens who get lost in the woods on prom night. Eventually, as it always goes, they end up in Leatherface's house, which is again, full of a brand new family of half-wits and psychotics, lead by Matthew McConaughey (you heard me), who is one of the few saving graces of this film, as he piles on the cheese to his character.Read more ›

I have no idea whatsoever why TCM fans dont like this one, I mean this movie has everything the original had and then some!

There's a girl on a meathook, a poor schmuk who is bashed over the head with a (bigger) sledge hammer, a girl in an icebox, lots of mayhem, hysteria, and a great soundtrack! My only complaint is the acting....particularly Sean (John Harrison). Let's not forget my favorite bad line, "Please mister, you're scaring me!" WTF? I say, buy the DVD, but only if you're a die-hard Texas Chainsaw Massacre series fan.

The major reason that the rep of this Chainsaw has been massacred is it's high comedic content. There's far more weird humor in this one than anyone could have expected. It's shockingly funny and contains gags (pardon the pun) that only Chainsaw fans would appreciate. The pizza gag is a funny follow-up to a line from part 3. The spoken word intro is a great commentary on parts 2 and 3. Leatherface even resumes his cross-dressing from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. There are some great cameos too. All of this means that this wouldn't be the best Chainsaw for newbies to start with. Those expecting straight serious horror also may not appreciate it at first. Next Generation is a playful parody of the Chainsaw movies that's obviously not intended to be taken too seriously.

Fans of the original and the sequel usually hate this one, but I almost did too...I saw it on cable and was like...mmh...then I watched it again [I taped it that night on HBO] and watched it with expectations of it to be funny...and it was way better. It's a pretty dumb movie, but it is funny and semi-suspenseful, better then part 3...not quite up to par with part 2, but a great sequel [remake, actually] overall...watch it 2 or 3 times, it gets more understanding everytime! Love the hospital scene featuring cameos from 2 of the stars from TCM 1

And trust me, that is saying a LOT. This is coming from someone who has sat through The Denists, 8 Heads In a Duffle Bag, Milo, The Men's Club, and trust me on this, MANY more. I will be honest here and say I have not yet been able to bring myself to watch the last 20 minutes of this movie. I don't think I can do it. WHY did I rent this? Was I on drugs? Did I go momentarily insane? My choices at Blockbuster were Videodrome, Drugstore Cowboy, and let's see, I should get one more movie here, how about...hmmm, what the heck, I'll rent this Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel #4. I should have instead taken the $3 and bought myself a 2 by 4 and hit myself in the head with it repeatedly for 70 minutes, as it would have been far more pleasant and less painful. Let's name some of the things this movie features so far: 1. Leatherface and other villians simply wander casually onscreen with no buildup or suspense whatsoever. 2. Leatherface is a pu**y. 3. The FX budget must have been so cheap, they blew it all on a rotting corpse in a bathtub, because there's a scene where a villian kills a teen by repeatedly running him over, and all they show is the interior of the car and Matthew McConahoey (sp?) saying, "yee-haw! I sure done run him over real good!"etc. 4. Putrid acting, especially from Zellwieger. 5. No plot whatsoever. 6. Oh, why am I even wasting my time discussing this crap? Trust me, SAVE YOUR MONEY. Even if you can watch it for free, DON'T DO IT! Make someone pay you at least 50 bucks if they ask you to sit through this godawful excuse of a movie. I give it NEGATIVE 10 stars.
