ell..well..well...what do we have here? Seems like our old buddy Mr. Kim Henkel decided to jump back into the horror movie genre, to cash in on his original cash cow. And let me tell you something. Folks, it fits like a leather glove.
Our story starts on prom night with four teens geting lost in the woods when they crash into another car. The boyfriend of one virginal girl, Jenny (Renee Zellweger, who's knee-deep in Hollywood right now), stays with the car, while the others go look for a tow truck. They wander into the trailer office of a Linnea-Quiqley-wannabe real estate agent who calls a tow truck. The truck arrives back at the car, driven by Vilmer (Matthew McConaughey). And that is when the teens are victims of a night of slice-and-dice fun.
Leatherface, as played by Austin, Texas radio personality Robert Jacks steals the show. He's a dim-wit that the audience can't help but laugh at for his child-like demeanor. A virtual remake of the first Chainsaw movie,all in all, this flick is the PERFECT companion piece to, oh say, the other Texas Chainsaw movies, or maybe even a Troma flick. Definitely check this one out. It's a worthy heir to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre family. And remember...as you go to sleep tonight, locking each door, peeking out of each window precariously..never forget that (even though it's not quoted in this sequel).... The Saw Is Family...
