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.Read more ›
The film was released on bare bones DVD back in 2000 but MGM released a special edition DVD edition dubbed The Gruesome Edition in 2006 which did the film's legacy justice. That same edition and HD master was used for the film's bluray release in 2012.
For Scream Factory's 2 disc collector's bluray release, they have released what in my eyes is the definitive release of the film. All of the extras from MGM's bluray including the two commentary tracks, the feature length making of documentary, deleted scenes and the theatrical trailer were ported over. New to this collector's edition is a third commentary track, 30 minutes of interview outtakes with the late & great screenwriter L.M. Kit Carson and sadly deceased actor Lou Perryman, still galleries, TV spots, 43 minutes of behind the scenes footage, a special effects featurette called House of Pain, interviews with the actors who played the two yuppies from the beginning of the film, the editor Alain Jakubowicz and stuntman Bob Elmore. Sean Clark also contributes a new episode of his Horror's Hallowed Grounds.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

The disc had what looked like a burn on the back. I already down voted the seller though.
