The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is my favorite film of the series. It brings us back to a time when horror films depended on originality, creativity and the drive to scare the audience. Horror movies are always most frightening when they resemble events that can actually happen in real life. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre doesn’t disappoint. Unlike Freddy and Jason, Leatherface has no motive for his carnage. Combine that with the gritty quality of an 80’s horror film and you have one of the best films of the genre.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is a 1986 American black comedy slasher film directed by Tobe Hooper. It serves as the perfect follow up to its predecessor, with plenty of violence and scares as well as a few laughs now and then. It is considered a parody sequel to the first film, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Just when you think Texas can’t get any worse, Leatherface pays a visit. A woman is victimized by the crazy cannibal family while another man hunts them down in this terrifying tale. This movie is definitely not for the faint of heart.
In a brief summary, this is the story:
The chainsaw-wielding Leatherface is up to his cannibalistic ways once again and the equally deranged Chop Top is terrifying people too, but this time they are targeting someone new. The masked killer has set his sights on pretty disc jockey Vanita “Stretch” Brock who teams up with Texas lawman Lefty Enright in order for them to both be able stand against the psychopathic threats that keep on terrorizing them…
This movie is very thrilling and scary; see my review below!
