Product Description

This sequel to Tobe Hooper's classic gore-fest stars Matthew McConaughey as Vilmer, a disturbed sadist with a mechanical leg. Together with the rest of his reclusive family, Vilmer sets out to butcher the two couples who have just arrived in town after being involved in a car crash. This would all be business as usual, an average day's killing for an average bunch of maniacs, if it wasn't for the resourcefulness of their intended victim Jenny (Renee Zellweger), a plucky heroine who intends to give her chainsaw-wielding assailants a run for their money.

From the Back Cover

If looks could kill, he wouldn't need a chainsaw...

Two young couples take a wrong turn down a deserted road in this bone-chilling sequel to the horror classic. A car accident occurs, they are stranded in an eerie small town. Eventually they discover a strange household led by Vilmer (Matthew McConaughey - EDTv, Contact, A Time To Kill), a sadistic recluse with a remote controlled mechanical leg.

The "chainsaw" family is bizarre, ludicriously dysfunctional and homicidal. But they did not, however, bargain with the resilience and courage of young Jenny (Renee Zellweger - Jerry Maguire, Reality Bites).

3.0 out of 5 stars WEIRD FILM !!! 31 Dec 2011
Dont listen to the title as this is the 4th texas chainsaw massacre not the second and if u did think this was second your missing out on 2 solid sequels ok on with the review.I realy was not expecting much from the fourth installment of a franchise and because of all the crap people give it but i can say that i was pleasently suprised theres loads of tension in the first half the characters do start to wear a bit thin in the second half as they are all a bit 2 comical but i guess they were going for a bit of a horror comedy as they did in the second installment
all leatherface seems to do is scream and wine in this film and is not scary it seems all tension is given by the weird family specialy mathew mcconoughay and his girlfriend/wife in the film.

Theres some horrific acting but it ads to the comedy of the film and there sort of there to be killed but all in all a good film and a briliant bit of time wasting fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars This Is NOT Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 4 Sep 2000
This film is not part 2 of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It is indeed part 4. Part 2 was rejected by the censors after they wanted 20 minutes of cuts. and Part 3 was rejected outright. What we have here is Part 4, toned down by some 10 minutes. When the film was made in 1994 it was called The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and by all accounts was not a bad movie. Since then it has gone through legal actions and different edits. What we are left with is nothing short of crap. Leatherface is now a demented transvestite, who is now more interested in lipstick than the chainsaw. Basically it is the first film without the style. Renee Zellweger and company are at a prom. They go into the woods where they come across the Sawyer family. The torture begins but there is no gore to talk about. Also the story is stupied. It turns out that the Sawyer family are working for the Government! . A lot of things are left unexplained by this edit. One can only hope that the Massacre film (AN ALL AMERICAN MASSACRE) will put the series back on track. I have based this review on the US edition of the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Too funny! 5 Nov 2003
By A Customer
This is a completely bizarre remake of the original movie. If you find demented 250lbs transvesites dancing round with chainsaws funny or just want to see Renee Zellweger beaten by a wannabe murderess with and long twig this is the movie for you! It's all very silly and a lot of fun. I liked it a lot more on subsequent viewings. Watch out for a Debbie Harry of Blondie singing on the soundtrack.

1.0 out of 5 stars TCM 4, style and form which is missable. 18 Jan 2005
By Jarface
It was christmas time and my brother never fails to let down again with TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE!!..........the next generation, but its the thought that counts! Starrying Matthew McConaughey as Vilmer(that bad-guy with the mechanical leg), and once again hes showing off his 1-dimensional acting talent. I can honestley say i have never seen a film so badly acted and directed, and the funniest thing is it would'nt even pass for unintentional stoner humour. The film is painfully, uninterestingly, bad. Don't let that put you off the other TCM films.
Perhaps the best cure for insomnia there is, provided you can sleep with a splitting headache and a bad case of "fist stuck in the wall". Don't buy this film or even borrow it, the only positive point was it left me with a need to really make the best of my time.
If you are looking at this film, you got the wrong version.
