Vilmer Sawyer is a main antagonist of the film Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. He is a brother of Leatherface and W.E. Sawyer, and the lover or husband of Darla. Vilmer is the least sane member and leader of the family. He uses a mechanical device in his right leg for unknown reasons.
Vilmer is first mentioned in the film when Darla calls him to go to the crash site between Jenny, Heather, Barry, Sean and a boy. Vilmer then arrives at the crash in his tow truck and encounters Sean, who was waiting for help. Vilmer then examinates the uncounscious boy and brakes his neck. Sean later starts escaping from Vilmer, but he ends being run over by Vilmer's tow truck. While Heather and Barry are at the family house ( where they are attacked by W.E. and Leatherface), Vilmer encounters Jenny on the road and picks her up. He later scares Jenny by showing her the bodies of the boy and Sean in the back of his truck. Jenny quits the truck and starts running but she is chased by Vilmer; when Jenny hides in the woods, Vilmer leaves the place and leaves the rest of the job to Leatherface. After Jenny is brought at the house by Darla, Vilmer shows up and constantly attacks Darla and scares Jenny and Heather. When the family is held at gunpoint by Jenny, he isn't scared and retrieves the gun from her. Then he begins to strangle Darla with his mechanical leg, giving a chance to Jenny to escape the house and get in Darla's car but Vilmer recaptures her and knocks her out. At dinner, Jenny makes Vilmer go insane and attack W.E. with hammer, killing him. When Rothman shows up, Vilmer is teased by him. After he leaves, he kills Heather and starts self-mutilaiting. While Vilmer grabs Jenny to make Leatherface kill her with his chainsaw, she takes one of Vilmer's remote controls (which controls Vilmer's robot Leg) and makes him let her go and escape the house. Jenny is later chased by Leatherface but she gets into a RV with two old people, leaving Leatherface behind. Seconds later, Vilmer appears driving his tow truck, with Leatherface in the back of it and attacking the RV. After the RV crashes and Jenny escapes it, Vilmer and Leatherface begin persuit her. But, then, an airplane appears in the sky descends height and hits Vilmer in the face with the propellor, killing him.
