Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: 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.

finally a good follow-up
11 November 1998 | by (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Despite other people's comments, I personally think this is a great follow-up of the original '74 movie. And a great relief after the really disappointing Leatherface movie. I liked the way Henkel filmed this sequel, like it happened back in 74. Packed with loads of hysterical scream-parts to really great redneck acting by the family itself. It kinda reminded me of the original.
