5.0 out of 5 stars Star-studded Cast December 28, 2003
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.

2.0 out of 5 stars A Horror Of A Horror Movie. October 28, 2004
"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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not The Best......... March 7, 2006
By S.M.
I own and love all T.T.C.M. movies. However, I must say that if I had a least favorite, it would be this one. Although I think Matthew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger give good peformances, I just find the "plot" to this one not as good as the other 4. A few silly scenes but this one doesn't fail to deliver the scares and gore. Just not quite as good as the others.

1.0 out of 5 stars Should Have Been A Musical... September 3, 2011
I mean, all the elements are there! You've got bug-eyed Mathew McConnaughey as a deranged hillbilly w/ a remote-control leg! Rene Zellweger as a "teen" victim, running, screaming, and jumping out of windows!! AND a 9'-tall Leatherface who squawks and shrieks continually like he's on fire!!! There's domestic violence as foreplay, skeletal remains as home decor that works, and even an old man who just might be dead! Not to mention dialogue that begs to be belted out in song (example: "You're a bona-fide mo-ron!). Set to music, TCM:TNG could have been a well-tuned, high-performance masterwork. Instead, it's a breakdown on the interstate of movie history. Oh well...

4.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME......AND CONFUSING August 29, 2005
A Kid's Review
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars MISSING THE POINT November 8, 2003
A Kid's Review
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] it 2 or 3 times, it gets more understanding everytime! Love the hospital scene featuring cameos from 2 of the stars from TCM 1
