AFTER A DECADE OF SILENCE... THE BUZZZ IS BACK!
In 1974, Tobe Hooper quite literally changed the face of horror with his landmark film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Although the hulking Leatherface and his trusty power tool left an indelible mark upon the cinematic landscape, it wouldn t be until 1986 that the buzz came back... in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2!
Relocating the cannibalistic Sawyer clan to a cavernous, labyrinthian dwelling beneath an amusement park, Hooper s deliciously demented sequel sees Leatherface and Co. continue their murderous exploits afresh. This time around, local DJ Stretch runs afoul of the Sawyers when she gets mixed up in the brutal slaying of two youngsters. Meanwhile, Lieutenant Lefty Enright, is hell-bent on avenging the murder of his nephew Franklin in the first movie.
A cult classic in its own right, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 serves up a heady blend of gratuitous gore, socio-political critique and jet-black humour whilst Dennis Hopper s unhinged turn as Lefty needs to be seen to be believed! Whichever way you skin it, Leatherface s second cinematic outing is an uncompromisingly delirious vision from one of horror s great directors.

Opinion is mixed as to whether Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is a worthy successor to Tobe Hooper's seminal slasher flick. The story picks up 14 years after the events of the first film, which have long since passed into local legend. On a relentless search for the maniacs who murdered his wheelchair-bound nephew Franklin, Lieutenant "Lefty" Enright (Dennis Hopper) is drawn to the scene of a brutal roadside killing in Red River, Texas. He soon forms an alliance with Stretch (Caroline Williams), a feisty female radio DJ who inadvertently broadcasts the chainsaw murder of two drunken frat boys live on her late-night phone-in request show. At Lefty's request she replays the tape on air and soon after receives a terrifying visit from two deranged fans, Leatherface and Chop Top, who are intent on killing her. Stretch escapes, and together with Lefty follows the trail of the gruesome twosome into the bowels of the deserted San Jacinto historical theme park, which hides a Leatherface house of horrors.
In contrast to the chilling, snuff movie scenario of the original, Hooper whoops it up with this 1986 sequel brimming with gruesome humour, without welching on the thrills. Writer LM Kit Carson (Paris, Texas) reworks Leatherface into a tragic, almost naïve figure trapped beneath a horrific façade and fleshes out his thoroughly dysfunctional family with the introduction of baby brother ChopTop--a steel-plated Vietnam vet. Leatherface's old man (now called Drayton Sawyer) and Grandpa are carried over from the first film. Dennis Hopper is clean cut but dead-eyed in a typically manic performance as the cowboy detective driven by revenge--think of an embryonic Frank Booth from Blue Velvet with a fetish for power tools. TCM2 is a wildly imaginative experiment in terror that stays true to its trashy exploitation roots.
On the DVD: The lack of extra features on this disc (apart from the standard theatrical trailer) is a major oversight given that TCM2 has had no previous theatrical or video release in the UK. A director's commentary would have been especially welcome, as well as the addition of the deleted scenes featured on the US laserdisc and special edition VHS versions of this film. Static menus provide options to watch the film with English, Spanish or Italian dialogue and subtitles in Danish, Norweigian and Swedish. The main feature is of more than adequate picture quality and presented in 16:9 anamorphic format. --Chris Campion --This text refers to the DVD edition.See all Product Description

REVIEW OF THE 2013 (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Blu-ray) from ARROW:
Truly a milestone, this may well be Arrow's best ever release (the Lifeforce Blu-ray [Limited Edition Steelbook] is another contender). It features 3 discs and one book, neatly grouped by a slipcase but in seperate books, making for an elegant package.
The artwork on the box is not my preference (to this day the only digital release of these films to use the Breakfast Club spoof artwork is the German Blu-ray, and no home video release has ever used the Howling-inspired poster with Leatherface cutting through a door) but it's very good and just about the best original cover it could have had, much better than the awful Gruesome edition cover in the US (which attempted to make it look like a sequel to the 2003 remake) or the even older cover of the first dvd with an unappealing picture of Dennis Hopper. The packaging is nice to hold but looks somewhat vulnerable to shelf wear (you'll want to be careful). Also included is a Certificate of Authenticity, complete with "Limited Edition Pressing Number" (and on the back of which is finally and thankfully a reproduction of Cannon's original "Breakfast Club" spoof poster!), and there's also an Arrow Video postcard (mine was for an upcoming release of "Remo: Unarmed and Dangerous" aka. Remo Williams).Read more ›
Part 2 concerns a DJ who gets a prank call but the pranksters get killed by Leatherface and the family whilst out on the road and the whole deaths are recorded on air. When she plays it again at the request of bounty hunter Dennis Hopper, 'the family' come for her at the radio show. First half of the movie is played out mostly in DJ headquarters whilst the second half is played out at the family's new underground home. You can tell the budget is 10x bigger than the original, the sets look very good.
Tobe Hooper who directed the first movie is back again, and yet his touch never feels like it's here, as said before this sequel is very different from the first movie. Dennis Hopper at first is very good as the hunter whose family member Franklin from the first movie was killed by Leatherface. Hopper has some of the best lines and we even get a chainsaw duel between him and Leatherface. But arguably stealing the movie is Bill Moseley as one of the family members. So good was he that Michael Keaton took inspiration from his character to play Beetlejuice.
There are a few problems with this sequel- the police apart from the beginning are nowhere to be found, even though the tape recording was supposed to bring them out of the cracks. The movie never tells us the fate of some of the characters and the finale is taken from the original. A little tired, though final shot looks great.
All in all this is a good sequel for what it is trying to be which is ultimately to be more open for teenagers at the time who could see the character of Leatherface and family as more cool, hence the original promo posters at the time.
I had never seen this film before I bought this edition. I had read mixed reviews! But I really liked it what I saw. It wasn't perfect. I it is not a typical modern horror flick! It is something more, something unique. The picture is really good in this blu-ray release, that is another thing I was worried about before is saw it, since it is not a high budget film. The picture is not something that killed the experience. No problems with the audio either, it is the original un-compressed audio track.
This edition contains pretty much everything you could wish for in extras. Two discs packed with extras (one of them is a DVD), making of- documentaries, interviews, two Tobe Hooper short films (Eggshells and The Heisters) in a all new blu-ray transfer, and much more! It also contains a book by Tobe Hooper called American Freak Illustrations. It is about the making of TCM and TCM 2, problems with the studio-deals and what happened after.
Like I said, is an unexpected, different and good film, that comes in a good-looking edition, filled with extras.
As a fan, I liked it alot! I'd say BUY!! It is a VERY LIMITED edition.
