3.0 out of 5 stars Don't listen to all the crap! April 8 2004
This 1995 'remake' to the classic mid 70's flick TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE is genuinely entertaining. The acting is fairly good and the movie is actually kind of funny at points (in a good way). The dark humor and ferocious horror/suspense is pretty thrilling. The movie is a re-make so it's basically the same thing as the first one except the teens (although they look 30) are coming home from prom when they get stuck out in the woods. Eventually they come toward the demented family and the 'fun' really starts. I really found it scary BECAUSE you don't know in the beginning whether that lady is one of them or she realy wants to help out... the last 20 minutes were fairly weak compared to the original but this was a pretty decent movie all in all. I thought it was creepy and had some funny moments. Not the strong point in the series, I think part 3 was better then this one, but it is worth a watch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Star-studded Cast Dec 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars And a good time was had by all June 17 2003
As a fan of the first two movies, I picked this one up with some trepidation. People were saying such bad things about it, I half expected it to have been shot on VHS. The cover art just added to my fears, as it called to mind Rocky Horror, but since I was going through a TCM phase anyway, I figured I should give this a go.
What I found when I loaded this into my DVD was a half-decent horror film. Essentially, its just a remake/update of the original, but a weirdly effective one. New characters are added and new motivations are assigned and the world the first TCM took place in has radically changed.
The DVD doesn't offer much in the way of extras. There are some liner notes and theatrical trailers for TCM:TNG plus some other, lesser movies.
All in all, I would say, if you're a devotee of the first movie, you probably wont have much use for this interloper, but if you're just looking for a cheezy good time with some mutilation and conspiracy theory thrown in, you could do a lot worse then TCM:TNG.

1.0 out of 5 stars Do Not Buy This DVD!!! May 1 2004
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Even though it's easily available elsewhere, Columbia has not chosen to release the uncut version of this movie on DVD. The case claims that it has the 94 minute version but it doesn't. The production notes they list are also not on this DVD. Normally this company is trustworthy but here they're just slacking and lying about it.

2.0 out of 5 stars What a mess and a waste of future talent March 15 2004
By A Customer
The only reason to watch this dreadful semi-remake of a classic horror film is Renee Zellweger, in a pre-stardom performance. Matthew McConaughey's outrageous overacting has to be seen to be believed. He too has gone on to become a capable actor. The film has some truly bizarre moments and much perhaps, unintentional humor. Many things are not adequately explained nor fully realized or capitalized on. There are a few truly novel ideas which are not expanded upon, unfortunately. Many of the characters are quite unpalatable and some are truly distasteful. There is very little blood and gore, quite surprisingly. The film seems longer (MUCH LONGER!!) than it's 84 minute running time. It was originally 94 minutes long (VERY LONG!!) when the film was first known as The Return Of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. It seems very strange that the film wasn't restored to it's original length for it's DVD release. But, considering the quality of the 84 minute version, perhaps that is quite long enough to endure this mess!! Only the presences of Zellweger and McConaughey save this from getting only one star, but just barely. Unless you are a real fan of Renee Zellweger, you are strongly advised to steer clear and save your money. Don't say you weren't warned!!

1.0 out of 5 stars This movie is bad. Jan. 10 2004
I was surprised about how bad this movie was considering it was written by the co-writer of the original film.When Kim Henkel wrote this I belive she was trying to write an entirely different story from the original film.Now in its own right this is a good film.If they didn't give it the same name and wrote Leatherface into a different character the movie would've been better.But considering this was an installment into the series it really sucked.I'm a huge fan of the TCM films,i've seen every one including the remake and this is at the bottom.The movie is did introduce two of todays biggest stars which are Renee Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey who was recently in a good horror film called "Frailty".This movie is one of the only two box office flops in the TCM series and its not to hard to understand,considering Leatherface is wearing a dress and lipstick and the fact that when that woman flashes her boobs you can see that they're fake.The makeup is bad,the script is awful,
the acting is bad even from Zellweger and McConaughey and it's a bad movie,but if you have to see all the movies in the series,if you have to.
