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.

Misunderstood by audiences and reviled by critics at the time of its original theatrical release in 1986, Tobe Hooper's "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2" has grown in stature over the years. While the original is the better and more important film of the two, the sequel is actually the one I tend to watch the most. The black comedy and gore are ramped up to the nth degree in this film which caught people off guard back in 1986 as they were expecting more of the minimalistic and bloodless approach of the original film which made it so potent. The film is completely off the rails and one of the wildest rides in horror movie history.

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.

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.
