Trivia

When W.E. comes in with the sawed door, he bickers at Vilmer and Darla saying "Look what your brother did to this door." This line is very similar to what Drayton says to the Hitchhiker in the original movie when they come home with Sally. Drayton, upon seeing the sawed door, shouts "Look what your brother did to the door!" See more »

Goofs

As Leatherface puts Heather in the freezer, Heather's silk gloves are rolled right down her arms in one shot, but are half-folded up in the next. See more »

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. Then, over the next several years at least two minor, yet apparently related incidents, were reported. Then again nothing. For five long years silence...

Wow, one of the most bizarre horror franchises ever!
27 May 2000 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

The latest Texas Chainsaw Massacre, is absolutely no rest from the bizarre first three horror films. Leatherface here is performed just like Gunnar Hansen's take in the 1974 granddaddy of all horror films, " The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." The actors seem to overact sometimes, it's pretty corny...still the humor and craziness of the flick are entertaining, as well as the music and atmosphere. Definitely the best film of the two leading stars, who would go on to become Hollywood heartthrobs. You'll have a lot of fun if you're a horror fan who likes to see some weird B-ish stuff.
