Zellweger makes Jenny the most formidable scream queen since Jamie Lee Curtis went legit.

McConaughey's over-the-top performance is brilliant, but not a single person actually gets killed with a chainsaw.

I thought this was crazy fun, minus the metal music.

Henkel penned the original Chainsaw and this effort shows that he still has a felicitous grasp of the things that cause us to shudder in dread.

Cinema Crazed

A sloppy, poorly written, lazily conceived mess from start to finish.

Actually a fairly serviceable slasher flick up until a head-scratching last fifteen minutes that introduces and then fails to explain a series of plainly stupid plot twists.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Not just a complete failure as a sequel, it's one of the five or ten worst films from the whole of the 1990s.

For the most part you stare at the screen and wonder how anybody involved thought this could possibly have been any good.

A hoot to see Matt and Renee, but none of the thrills of the original. Not scary or fun.
