Movie Review: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre - The Next Generation
@lcfremont takes you back to time before the Mcconaissance...The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation
At various intervals this year, Haddonfield Horror will be reviewing all of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre films both the good and the god awful. We continue with a review of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.
This is the first film that didn't just gloss over the fact that Leatherface likes to dress up and wear makeup. It revels in it. Despite the poor quality of his wig, this is the most glam Leatherface the franchise has seen. Played by Robert Jacks, this Leatherface is clearly enamoured with female beauty and he is more of a gentle giant. Well, a cannibalistic gentle giant, but he has a heart and that has always been the conundrum with Leatherface. He's just doing what his family tells him to. When not butchering up hot, young meddling teens, he enjoys sewing new masks for himself and applying makeup to them. Quite frankly, if there wasn't the danger of turning into Sunday dinner, I imagine Leatherface to be a fun guy to go out on the town with. Can't you just picture it? We'll put on some 80's dance music, pick out dresses and do each others makeup. Dare to dream.
