Though Henkel's script broadly apes memorable moments from the first film, the echoes only serve to underscore how short he's coming up here.

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

Zellweger makes Jenny the most formidable scream queen since Jamie Lee Curtis went legit.
Dustin Putman
October 24, 2008
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.

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 cheap rip-off with a story and ending that made no f-ing sense!

You might wanna erase this from your CV's, guys?

Passable -- and much better than its reputation.

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

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

An A-list cast wallowing in grade-Z material

The bottom line is that the only Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie that you need is to see is the first.

Its wretchedness is so complete it can't help but attract bad-movie addicts the way a dead skunk draws flies.

Recommended for viewers who haven't enough fear, stress, violence or ugliness in their lives.

Without much wit of its own, Kim Henkel's tyro film is just what the polished Scream makes fun of.

This pathetic, previously released cine-road kill was obviously only exhumed to cash in on some now-famous cast members.
