Go Behind the Scenes of Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation


To say that Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation is an odd entry into the franchise is a bit of an understatement. Me? I’ve seen the movie over a dozen times, and I’m still perplexed by what I’ve witnessed.

Here’s what I do know (or at least I think I know):

  • Matthew McConaughey as Vilmer is one of my favorite Chainsaw villains.
  • Renee Zellweger was actually tolerable in this film – maybe because she didn’t have that perpetually sucking on a lemon look on her face yet.
  • Vilmer has a remote control leg. Why, I have no clue.
  • The family are not cannibals, but instead prefer to dine on pizza.
  • The family are contractors for a government agency hellbent on studying fear? I’m still not sure of this.
  • Leatherface now has perfect white teeth. I guess not indulging in human flesh has its benefits.
  • When a secretly pierced businessman knocks at your door and unsheathes his multi-nippled chest, it’s cause for alarm.

The film was original released in 1994 as The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre and then later released again in 1997 as Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.

If you have the same views and/or conclusions about the movie, then maybe this rare hour-long documentary directed by Brian Huberman can shed some light on shit for us all.

To date Huberman’s doc has never seen the light of day until now. Check it out!
