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, so we've all come to various conclusions about this movie and saw it in a different light. To anyone out there who hates it..chill!! It's mindless horror, it's meant to be fun and it manages to be scary, hilarious and disturbing. The first hour or so is definitely the best and contains some genuinely frightening scenes as well as two classic chase sequences between Leatherface and the two heroines. Lisa Marie Newmeyer puts in a memorable role as the mindless Prom queen and has some of the funniest lines since "Clueless" and Renee Zellweger is great as the mousey Jenny who goes from classroom geek to feisty survivor and gives the cannibal clan a good run for their money. It's all very purposely retro, a film that would have been top notch in the 70's slasher era...when the characters sprout lines like.."My flashlight's dead" or "Hello? Is someone there", walk into old houses in the middle of the woods and split up to get help, you know that the director Kim Henkel wanted to capture the innocent horror of pre "Scream" times. It's a pity that he got lost somewhere after the first hour and added the senseless Rothman character...instead of staying classic and ending with a great chase scene he tried to make the story a little bit different. He should have stuck with the formula we've trusted for so long and one he'd delivered so far...still not a bad sequel...better than 2, much better!!!
