Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
Still haunted by his past, Tommy Jarvis - who, as a child, killed Jason Voorhees - wonders if the serial killer is connected to a series of brutal murders occurring in and around the secluded halfway house where he now lives.
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.

Matthew McConaughey (Vilmer) and Renée Zellweger (Jenny) both came to fame years later in 1996 with the movies A Time to Kill (1996) and Jerry Maguire (1996), respectively. Both actors shared the same talent agency. When Sony, who owned this film's distribution rights, were preparing to re-release the film, highlighting the pair, both actors' agent threatened a lawsuit against the studio, claiming their clients were being unfairly exploited. The agency also said that if Sony released the film on the back of their names, that neither actor would appear in any future Sony releases. Plans for the release were quickly scuttled. See more »

August 18, 1973. News of a bizarre, chainsaw wielding family - reports which were to ignite the world's imagination - began to filter out of central Texas. Regrettably not one of the family members was ever apprehended and for more than ten years nothing further was heard. Then, over the next several years at least two minor, yet apparently related incidents, were reported. Then again nothing. For five long years silence...

Okay, it's not the greatest movie in the world. Okay, it almost directly rips off the first one. Okay, the plot twist at the end is more confusing and dumb than thought provoking. Who cares? I sure don't! This was the first Texas Chainsaw I had ever seen. I loved it then and I love it now. The movie is about madness, plain old madness, and thats what it delivers. Again, it borrows heavily on the original. A bit tacky to say the least, but its got a lot of its own to stand on. I found that the character of Vilmer to be the best "not Leatherface" psycho of the series. Just edging out Bill Moseley as Chop-Top. Its popcorn horror, plain and simple. This movie scratches that part of me that also enjoys Cannibal Holocaust and Toxic Avenger. I recommend giving it a shot. You might hate it, or then again it might become one of your favorites.
