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...

The return of the texas chainsaw massacre returns to the roots of the series by eschewing the gore of the 2 previous sequels for the psychological terror and jet black humour of the original film.
This film is actually more of a remake than a sequel, with several sequences (such as the infamous meathook) copied shot by shot from the original film. Kim Henkel, the director, was the co-writer of the original chainsaw massacre back in 1974 and it is apparent this is his version of how he saw the original film. The humour is perhaps more to the fore in this film, with Matthew Mcconaughey (Sp?) going way over the top and leatherface in full transvestite mode and this can sometimes work to the detriment of the film.
The last half of the film keeps the tension up well, with the underlying threat that violence could explode at any moment. However too much of the acting is of the "shout at the top of your voice" school and by the end of the film youre wondering how many times poor Renee Zellwegger can escape and be recaptured.
Overall better than the second and third entries in the series, but way behind the first.
