Great bloody fun.
Glynn
When Tobe Hooper created the original "Texas Chain Saw Massacre" in 1974, he created a terrifying, horror masterpiece that set the standards for slasher films to come.

I just don't really care for these kind of movie's.

If you are a serious fan of horror films or you already have the bare-bones DVD version of TCM 2 then you need to buy the Gruesome Edition now. Comparing Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 to the original or the other sequels/remakes is pointless because this film is a beast all its own. It was made to be different than the first and Tobe Hooper lived up to it. It is quite obvious that this film is camp, but thats what makes it so great. The absurdness, the heavy gore(lovingly provided by legend Tom Savini), the rockin' soundtrack(The Cramps, Concrete Blonde), and the action just makes this one of my favorite horror movies ever. The performances are completley memorable. Bill Mosley's Chop-Top character is one of the funniest and most iconic roles ever. Caroline Williams is one hell of a shrieker and plays the part of Stretch to a T. The locations and set pieces really gives this film an epic feel, especially the amazing underground lair of the Sawyer Family. The only horror fans that I can imagine that wouldnt like TCM II are those who like "serious" horror only or purists of the original. This was made for the American horror fan. I mean come on, dueling chainsaw battles between Dennis Hopper(Blue Velvet, River's Edge) and Leatherface? This is the stuff dreams are made of. The original carries the "classic" disturbing value, but Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 takes the cake as far as entertainment value is concerned.

The extras are great. The 90 minute interview segments with the actors/filmakers is great. Bill Johnson(Leatherface), Bill Mosely(Chop-Top), and Caroline Williams(Stretch) recall their fond memories and share great stories on this wonderful flick. The great Tom Savini also shares his memories on working on the film and creating the gore.

This 80's sequel to the 1974 hit "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" is actually a good movie once you set aside the fact that it is completely different from the original. Those expecting a continuation of part 1 are sadly mistaken. This wild sequel is more about special effects, action, gore and dark humor. I like this one a lot simply because it doesn't take itself too seriously and it's actually a decent movie, there is a pretty good ammount of thrills and laughs, and I like it very much.

Most people don't realize what a genius Tobe Hooper really is. When Tobe Hooper created the original "Texas Chain Saw Massacre" in 1974, he created a terrifying, horror masterpiece that set the standards for slasher films to come. Tobe also realized something that most other horror producers never figured out; you can't sell the same movie twice. That's why many horror franchises continued drop box office sales lower and lower with every single sequel they made. Tobe realized that audiences get tired of seeing the same thing over and over again. He knew he could not top the masterpiece he created, so he created another form of masterpiece. "Texas Chain Saw Massacre 2" is an over the top thrill ride that will entertain you from begining to end. Whereas the first TCM provided shere terror,TCM2 provided thrills, excessive gore, and it's own brand of dark humor. The film is pure genius, and provides an epic conclusion to the events that had unfolded over a decade earlier.

The amazing thing is that this was truly the end of the series. Tobe Hooper ended the film in such away that it was impossible for any of it's characters to return. "Leatherface: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 3" failed to explain how Leatherface returned for another movie after being killed off in TCM2. The only film in the series worth watching after TCM2, is "Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2004)," the remake. Another thing worth noting, is that Tobe Hooper has a way of creating colorful characters that stand-out and sell the movie. The sequels that followed TCM2 all had very bland characters. Chop-top steals the scenes as much as Leatherface in TCM2, and who could forget the Hitchhiker in the first TCM. So do yourselves a favor, and check this movie out.

Now if only MGM studios will get in gear and release this masterpiece on blu-ray, and give it the royal treatment it deserves.

But not the one they said they were putting out complete with commentary, deleted scenes, some deleted scenes and gore put back in the movie, still galleries and all that stuff. Maybe its on its way, I hope.
This is the only sequel worth looking at in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre series. Its sloppy, cheesy, funny,overly done and its fantastic! It rates nowhere near the original TCM's level so if you havent seen it yet don't go in expecting something that tops the first film, a sequel never could cause Texas Chainsaw Massacre is just something thats impossible to make a sequel to.
This is a very odd movie. Taking place years after the first one its about a airhead DJ who's 24/7 horrible 80s music (in TCM?!! the first film the music on the radio was just strange guitar diddles that were timeless) station records two 80s stock characters-college party dorks complete with 80s sunglasses getting sawed up by Leatherface while driving on tape. As you can see from the start this movie bears no resembalance to the first one even though directed by the same man. This film is a gorefest that was not meant to be taken seriously as a film or as a sequel yet it angered a ton of people for being unrealistic and comedic. There's a chainsaw fight at the end with Dennis Hopper vs Leatherface so.. I can see why if your a stiff neck "serious horror only" types who couldn't understand why Evil Dead 2 was so stupid (and didn't see it was being goofy and over the top on purpose like this film is).
There are some great performances from Jim Siedow who returns from the first film as Cook (or Drayton Sawyer) only not as serious or menacing but still does great job.
