Wiki description:

Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (also known as Return of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) is a 1994 sequel/remake to the original movie The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) horror film. It stars award winning actors Renée Zellweger and Matthew McConaughey, years before either of them became famous.

The film was written and directed by Kim Henkel who had co-written the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Originally released in 1994, it was later edited and reissued in 1997. The edited version is the most commonly available, but there have been DVD releases of the original uncut film.

This film is one of the most ridiculed entries in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, with many (if not most) saying it is the worst in the entire series...

A review from amazon:

"Why? Someone tell me why. Someone e-mail me and explain to me why. There is nothing to gain here. Nothing to be learned, nothing to excite, no story. Why? Seriously, is there any documentation that might explain WHY this thing (not a film) exists. Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre is so unprecedented in it's poorness, that it doesn't even succeed in being a dumb slasher flick. Let me reiterate. The filmmakers actually FAILED at the least complicated genre in the book. If I wanted a series of randomly assembled images leading nowhere I would have rented "Week End".

The only reason to see this is that ever crafty curiosity value. Yes, you will be compelled to watch, if only to observe some clue as to why both Matthew McConaughey (pre-"A Time to Kill") and Rene Zellweger (pre-"Jerry Maguire") accepted the lead roles (the clue never comes). Texas Chain Saw fans will, of course, feel the completist need to see this, the death knell of the series. And finally, I think just the concept of Leatherface as a shrieking cross-dresser will garnish a few bewildered viewers. But believe me folks, this still doesn't answer the ultimate question: Why? Why?! WHY?!"
