Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


When Sally escaped, the brothers knew the police would search for them. The sequel explains that they keep moving across Texas.

I'm glad you ask me why I dislike part 4. Mere hours ago, I wrote a review, and by now it's posted on my site.

In part 1, the brothers thought of the people as cows or pigs. They survived by killing and eating people. Remember the barbeque that the old man sold in the gas station? The interesting thing was that they were not supernatural, they simply lived away from society and did not know the world as we do. Remember also that Leatherface tried to kill Sally before she reached the gas station. When the old man brought her back to the house, it happened to be time for dinner, so she was placed at the dinner table. They intended for Grandpa to kill her later, [sign in to see URL] didn't happen.

In part 4, the brothers are certainly killing people for the hell of it, not for food. There appears to be no reason for the brothers to torture the girl, only to make the movie last longer. Where is the character explanation? There is none. As Vilmer says, "!@#$! DO YOU THINK I CARE?". The conflict of the film is basically city folks against country folks. This offends me, as I'm a resident of the rural Southern United States. The woods in the movie look like woods near my house. The conflict can also be restated as left-wing political idealogy versus right-wing filtered through a left-wing point-of-view; these elements are present, but are all very shallow. For what I hate most about part 4, check my review for part 1. All of the original film's distinguishing qualities are ignored in part 4 by the same person who co-wrote the orignal film's screenplay.

I believe the 2003 TCM will be named as a remake to part 1, not part 5. Depending on who makes the next sequel, it could be called part 5(if it acknowledges the original film), or part 2(if Michael Bay's production company has anything to do with it).

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


Leatherface also tried to kill Jenny in part 4. Some things in part 4 were weird. Maybe I didn't watch closely enough but when Heather saw Barry kissing with another girl she took off in a car, Barry's car. Barry managed to get in. After this Jenny and Sean appeared in the back of the car. How did they get their? A minute ago I saw them walking in the building! Was this just a cheap way to get them in the car or something?

Heather did not stay mad very long after Barry got in the car. It seems all of the characters in part 4 are crazy. It made little sense that the four teens would drive into the woods on prom night.

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


Still I wanna know what the hell Jenny and Sean would do in Barry's car. I've watched the movie again, in the hope to it became more clear but no. Even worse, more things became unclear. Why should a RV driving on a way where a plain is going to land. That accident that killed Vilmer was so stupid. The truck accident that killed the hitch-hiker in part 1 was much better. Who was that Rothman? He wants people to know what horror is. Weird. After W.E. was knocked down by Vilmer grandpa stood up, took a knife and left??? A deleted scene, must be. At the end in the hospital Jenny saw a girl lying on a bed carrying away be someone. This was Sally I heard, but why should she still be in the hospital after so many years? I think that guy who carried her away was someone of the family who came to bring her back. This movie was released again in 1996. It was called Next Generation. Why? Also a lot of scenes seems to be cut out. On IMDB I saw they credited Jenny's stepfather, I didn't saw him in the whole film.

But I must say, without the things which were unclear, it was a good film. Not as good as part one but still good. Weird it is hated by so many people: on IMDB it had a 2,7. Very low.

By the way, I went to the Free Record Shop this day to get TCM 2. I received a mail he was available. When I got their they offered me part 4. Weird or what? They thought this was part 2.

Jenny and Sean seemed to be having sex in Barry's car, but Barry said they were smoking marijuana. Why does Vilmer have a girlfriend? Rothman says something about wanting to make people feel happiness, as well. And why does he take Jenny to the hospital? The girl in the end could not have been Sally. Why would the family leave her in the hospital for so long? Jenny seemed to recognize her.

Much is unclear about almost every scene of this movie.

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


Sean and Jenny having sex in Barry's car? They didn't looked like types who will have sex on a prom night in someone's car. As Barry said: Jenny hates guys. Very unclear. My favorite of the family was W.E. with his weird dialogues. What the purpose was of Rothman was also unclear: horror and happiness. And yes, it's stupid to take Jenny to the hospital, he could have been arrested. Also Sean was not so smart, if he just runs into the woods Vilmer couldn't drive him over. And how did Heather managed to get away. First of all she was hanged on a hook by Leatherface and at least one of the family members must have noticed her. She must have been very lucky I think.

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


W.E. was my favorite as well. I love one of the quotes he used, and the dinner scene when he talks to Grandpa. There was one quote which seemed not to fit his character. People in Texas do not have great respect for General Sherman, who marched through the southern states during the U.S. Civil War burning cities(he spared my city, though-he said the little town was pretty-I believe the locals bribed him).

Heather's luck turned out not to be so good after all. She seemed very dumb. I also find it difficult to believe she pulled herself off of the hook and crawled out of the house.

Remember the kid who got his neck snapped by Vilmer? If the family kills people so often and without much thought, why had they not been caught already?

Also, Jenny's father may have been the man piloting the airplane. A scene which explained this was probably cut from the film because it seemed implausible...

Re: Texas Chainsaw Cash-Grab(a true story!)


Yes, all those people who dissapeared, the police must discovered it. If the police just went searching I'm sure they must have found the house, if they just look inside...

When Darla ordered some pizzas the back of the car was open. I'm sure Jenny must have heard there were people around, even policemen, why didn't she screamed like hell to be heard? I was thinking that everyone there belongs to the family!

Vilmer put the bodies in the back of his car, maybe they buried them in the backyard and use some of them for decoration on the dinner table.

To put yourself of a hook seems very difficult I think. Your whole back will be damaged so I don't think you'll come far. If I was her I try to take a W.E.'s gun and shoot as many family members as possible emoticon

Jenny lost Heather and Barry because they were running after a truck. I think it was the truck of W.E. But who was that guy on the motor cycle? Jenny tried to let him stop but she didn't succeed. If that was just a guy who was driving in the woods I think there must be more people there, they must have noticed something!

Vilmer did say that Leatherface wanted Jenny's skin. I suppose this is one reason that the family kills.

The people at the pizza restaurant seemed not to know Vilmer's girlfriend. Many people walked by while she had the trunk open. The clerk should have said something to the police, as well.

Someone should have been searching for the man who's neck was broken by Vilmer.

And all those other people who've been killed by them.

But this action was also very stupid. Jenny became stuck in the woods. Vilmer left and then Leatherface came. She runs away and then she runs into a house. Shouldn't the expect that it was possible that it was just Leatherface's house she ran into?
