The hospital scene at the end features three actors from the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974). John Dugan, who played Grandfather in the original film, is the cop. Paul A. Partain, who played Franklin Hardesty in the original film, is the orderly. Marilyn Burns, who played Sally Hardesty in the original film, is the patient on the gurney (credited as "Anonymous").

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...

If the director of this film was trying to recapture the atmosphere of the first TCM, he did a terrible job. If he was trying to make some kind of comedy or satire, he did an even worse job. This one isn't scary, nor is it funny, not even unintentionally--it's too awful to even laugh at. Watching this movie is like having someone kick you in the head for two hours, only to find out that you have just survived the warm-up session and the worst is yet to come. Whenever you think the movie cannot possibly get any worse, it does. And then it does it again, and again, and... well, you get the idea.
I'm no stranger to B-movies or horror films or horror comedies. DEAD ALIVE is one of my favorite movies. I've watched SATAN'S CHEERLEADERS and various Troma films multiple times because I think they're so hilarious. I worship the EVIL DEAD trilogy. Basically I've been a huge horror fan for most of my life. It is with that background that I am warning you away from this movie. It is one of the worst I've ever seen and is completely without value. I am truly stunned that Renee Zellwieger (however she spells it) and Matthew McConaughey had careers after this. They never mention this movie in public, and for good reason.
In conclusion: Stay away, far away. Do not rent the video. If this comes on TV, change the channel. Utter garbage.
