Cannibal transvestite Leatherface wreaks havoc once more in this third, postmodern-edged sequel, penned by director Henkel (who co-scripted the original cult classic). Here, his quarry are plucky small-town teens begarbed for their high school prom. Notable for its early work from Texas natives Zellweger and McConaughey, who went on to Hollywood fame–and, according to rumor, tried to have this effort vaulted.
This is an insult to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Sadly, this one was the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie that I saw, and I almost decided not to bother with this series because of seeing this film. We get a cross-dressing Leatherface, Mathew McConaughey with a remote control leg, and some of the worst acting I’ve ever seen. They’ve linked the Texas Chainsaw Massacre with the Government? What is up with that? I am glad that I didn’t give up on the series after viewing this garbage. If you want to see a real good movie with Leatherface, check out the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre. That film is a classic, this one just insults it. I give this film a 1 out of 10.
