Cult horror

This movie is definitely not winning any awards., but it is definitely a guilty pleasure for alot of people who like B quality horror movies and ridiculous cult movies. You know the ones, "So bad that it's good."

A film Renée Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey hope you missed!

Many popular actors appeared in a lot of crap up until they had a breakthrough film that made them stars. Sylvester Stallone made porn as well as "Death Race 2000" before making it big with "Rocky". George Clooney made "Grizzly II: The Concert". Johnny Depp starred in "A Nightmare on Elmstreet". And, Renée Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey both starred in "The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre"...a film that is currently #45 on the IMDB's infamous Bottom 100 List--the 100 worst rated major release movies of all time.

In this film, the normally cute and very pretty Zellweger plays a ridiculous nerd. How do you know she's a nerd? She never washes her hair and wears dorky glasses. Why she would hang out on prom night with the vacuous and nasty 'popular couple' makes little sense....and everyone seemed more like caricatures than real people. Plus, anyone...even a super-dork...would wash their hair when going to prom. As for McConaughey, he plays a redneck serial killer...and actually is much more believable than the rest. Little do any of them know that far worse awaits them.

So is the film any good despite being on IMDB's infamous Bottom 100 List? No. Many of the characters make no sense (such as the lady who flashes her breasts out the window and whose dialog was written by a groundhog) and the film seems like it was made for folks who find the "Friday the 13th" franchise too intellectually taxing. Bad acting, bad direction, ultra-violence and a script that simply is an excuse to see teens butchered...this one is simply a bad film from start to finish. But it's also proof that being in a terrible film like this does not necessarily destroy your career. You can, over time and with better scripts, overcome the embarrassment of being in "The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre".

before they were stars

The first stories about the infamous cannibal family emerged in 1973. It's 1996 and it's been quiet for a few years. Jenny (Renée Zellweger) is at her high school prom. She gets brought along with her 'friends' when they get into a car crash. She heads off to find help. She and her friends fall prey to the secret cannibals and murderous tow truck driver Vilmer (Matthew McConaughey).

This is a few months after Dazed and Confused. Both Zellweger and McConaughey would go from that indie darling to this forgotten horror comedy and eventually onwards to becoming Academy Awards winning stars. It's amazing to see the two Texans doing an iconic Texas horror franchise. Strict franchise fanatics would hate this Leatherface. There's no way any cinema snobs would like this. At the time, these future stars were nobodies. I can understand its dismissal at the time of its release. I myself am watching it for the first time. It is pure joy to watch McConaughey go full crazy and Zellweger finding her inner scream queen. This is also a little fun. Darla is a little funny but the drive-thru takes it too far. This movie has probably improved markedly due to the performances of its famous stars.
