Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (also known as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 & TCM 2) is a 1986 big-budget long-awaited horror sequel to the 1974 horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. It is currently the only sequel to show plot-continuity. The film stars Dennis Hopper as “Lefty”, Bill Johnson as “Leatherface”, and Jim Siedow, who once again picks up the role of “The Cook” (whose real name is revealed to be Drayton Sawyer). It was written by L.M. Kit Carson and directed by Tobe Hooper, who also directed and co-wrote the original.

The film is highly criticized by some for its stylistic departure from the first film, which used minimal gore and a low-budget documentary ambiance to scare its audience by skillfully building up dramatic tension. Unlike its predecessor, TCM2 delivers over-the-top, highly stylized gore and features effects from makeup maestro Tom Savini. The emphasis is on black comedy; director Tobe Hooper believed the humor was not appreciated in the first film. While successful in its initial 1986 theatrical release, the film failed to make a substantial profit, but became quite popular on VHS, leading to a Special Edition DVD release in 2006.
