Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Gneneration (1995) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
This movie sat on a shelf for four years before being released in ‘98, as the producers waited for it’s main stars Mathew McConaughey and Renee Zellweger to get their names well known starring in other movies. This movie is basically a horrible remake of the original, written and directed by Kim Henkel (who co-wrote the original with Hooper) who felt she could better exploit parts of the original she had written, but instead makes Leatherface out to be almost homosexual who kills absolutely nobody with his saw. The end of the flick is really bad as it tries to give an explanation for the Family’s actions by saying they are employed by the Illuminati, a group of madmen who supposedly control the fate of the world. Basically, the only reason to watch this movie is to see McConaughey portray a lunatic of the strangest kind with great, over the top acting. Skip it, unless you’re a huge McConaughey or Zellweger fan. Fans of the TCM series will be very dissapointed. Side Note: Look for more information on the Illuminati throughout the web, as some conspiracy nuts actually believe this group is real.
