From Amazon.co.uk

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

I'm going to review several versions of this film's release, going backwards chronologically. Hopefully it's labelled well enough you can dip in and grab the one you want.

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 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).

Entertaining sequel to the all out grim 70s classic. But whether you will like it or not if you love the original is anyone's guess. Be sure this sequel is more open, even has some lines of comedy in it and is a far different beast to the original.

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.

This blu ray would make the perfect gift for the horror aficionado in your life. Texas Chainsaw 2 is to Texas Chainsaw 1 what Evil Dead 2 is to Evil Dead 1: a manic, high energy follow up. Both veer off the originals straight horror template into something approaching cartoony monstrosity. As with Evil Dead 2, Texas Chainsaw 2 moves fast, barely pausing for breath and goes over the top. The boxset contains the full UNCUT movie in all its uncensored glory. Picture quality is good and sharp. The picture has a nice grainy look that never compromises the quality. There's two other discs highlighting some of Hooper's early works complete with interviews and the like. The set also contains a lavish booklet, postcard and individually numbered cert. This is a great package. For those who are put off by the negative critics reviews of this, kudos must be given to Hooper for doing something different. He could have made the same movie again but chose to go down a different bombastic and surreal path. And the actress Caroline Williams playing the screaming heroine of the movie, 'Stretch', puts in a fantastic and charismatic performance. In a nutshell, if you like Evil Dead 2 you will like this.

Arrow Video has put together an outstanding package for this cult classic chainsaw follow-on. It is hard to think of a better all-round release than this. We have a faithful transfer of the uncut movie, a brilliant book of opinionated critique, fabulous documentaries and features galore, plus hi-def editions of two of Tobe Hooper’s rare early works! Seriously, alongside the supplement-packed original movie and its dazzling transfer on Blu, Head-Cheese fans can happily retire to hog-heaven and rev their saws in deep satisfaction and luxury.This is a superb movie that satisfies on a purely visceral and gut level and tickles the darkest of funny-bones

Some people have never taken to the satirical stance of Chainsaw Massacre 2 but, seriously, where else do you think that Hooper could have gone with the material? We’ve had further adventures, remakes and prequels and then the inevitable 3D lunacy, but the real meat of the matter lies in these first two official buzz-sawing yarns. This is a superb movie that satisfies on a purely visceral and gut level, tickles the darkest of funny-bones and genuinely adds to the mythos of the inbred Texan clan of redneck renegades, as well as making a delicious poke-in-the-eye statement about the superficial, money-grubbing decade of excess.

Excessive, wacky and extremely funny, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 doesn’t do what you think it will, but once you settle into its wicked exuberance, you should have a big, bloody ball with it. The original movie is an unparalleled masterpiece of the macabre, but then so is this, in its own right.

A grotesque gem of a sequel gets an awesome UK release from Arrow!
