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.

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).
