Driving through Texas, teenagers Michelle (Kate Hodge) and Ryan (William Butler) stop at a gas station right in the middle of nowhere, which is run by a downright looney, Alfredo (Tom Everett) and his handsome brother Tex (Viggo Mortensen), who is fairly normal ... or so it seems.

Fact is, soon after they leave the gas station, a truck is coming after them, trying to push them off the street, then disappearing into thin air. And when they try to fix a tire on their car, out of nowhere appears a masked man with a chainsaw, Leatherface (R.A.Mihailoff), threatening them. Michelle and Ryan get away in their car, if just, but soon enough they crash into another car, Ben's (Ken Foree), and though they survive the crash virtually unscathed (despite their car turning over, going down a hill and finally crashing into a tree), they suddenly realize they are sitting duck should Leatherface eever come back ... thank god that Ben has brought a selection of weapons with him to go Leatherface-hunting.

Be that as it may, soon enough, Michelle and Ryan decide they ahve to run, and soon enough, Leatherface kills Ryan, and Michelle gets captured by Leatherface's family that also includes Tex and Alöfredo as well as a mummified corpse that is supposed to be father, Mamma (Miriam Byrd-Nethery) and a creepy little girl (Jennifer Banko) and yet another brother of Leatherface. Michelle is nailed to her chair and has to witness the body of Ryan being hanged on his feet right in front of her and being mutilated. However, eventually Ben ambushes the house and gives the inhabitants a taste of his medicine (guns), and somehow, after much shooting, running, fighting and stumbling upon dead bodies and/or bodyparts the two somehow find a car, kill Alfredo who has somehow caught up with them, and make a final getaway, with Leatherface, his chainsaw in hand, looking after them in disappointment.


If you are watching the second sequel to a highly successful and influential film like The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, you pretty much know the film won't be anything great: Most likely the screenplay will be silly and tiring, the actors will be second rate and the whole thing will be bloody derivative. All this is of course true with Leatherface, but somehow these are not the main reasons the film is quite so bad. What makes this film truly atrocious is director Jeff Burr's obvious refusal to create anything even remotely resembling a creepy atmosphere. All the creepy sets, like the house of Leatherface's family or a lake full of corpses, are filmed in a so uninvolving way (it seems the camera was just placed at a random spot) that none of the macabre elements - which are there - are given a chance to come to life. Worst of all though is the rendition of boogey-man Leatherface himself, who is filmed in such a haphazard way he - the center of menace in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - comes off about as menacing as Caspar the Friendly Ghost ... and in case you ask, yes, in some scenes Leatherface even seems to be kind of cute.

In all, a terrible film that is best left unwatched.
