The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2
1hr 41min CAST: Bill Johnson, Dennis Hopper, Caroline Williams, Jim Siedow DIRECTOR: Tobe Hooper WEIRD ELEPHANT SERIES
Over ten years after making the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Tobe Hooper returns to his deranged family of reclusive cannibals for another round of chainsaw chases and non-stop screaming. The result is an impish take-off on the original film (and contemporary horror movies in general) which elevates its own cliches (buckets of blood and gore, droll dialogue, the screaming female lead) to the level of high camp.
TCM 2 works because it's a complete original. You never know from minute to minute where it's going to go, and that unpredictability keeps you riveted for every single second.Mike McGranaghan, Aisle Seat
A ripe and wicked horror-comedy, as black as pitch and every bit as violent as naysayers mistakenly accused the first film of being.Dustin Putman, TheFilmFile.com
