A key component of just why many sequels don’t satisfy is that age old complaint of repetition. The Saw and Paranormal Activity franchises are just the latest examples of films which don’t do anything all that different from the first in their intent aside from new characters, more complex mythology and the odd new Usp, something which made Paranormal Activity 3 in particular a more interesting installment than it probably should have been with its oscillating camera.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Blu-ray Review

10 November 2013 8:30 AM, PST | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Director: Tobe Hooper

Starring: Dennis Hopper, Caroline Williams, Jim Siedow, Bill Moseley, Bill Johnson, Ken Evert and Lou Perryman

Certificate: 18

Running Time: 101 minutes

Synopsis: Tobe Hooper’s sequel sees Leatherface and Company continue their murderous exploits. This time around, local DJ Stretch runs afoul of the Sawyers when she gets mixed up in the brutal slaying of two youngsters. However, Lieutenant Lefty Enright is hell-bent on avenging the murder of his nephew Franklin in the first film!

Missing the shear intensity and tone of Hooper’s macabre 1974 masterpiece, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 may not come close to matching the director’s original gritty classic, yet it certainly has balls for sidestepping in a totally different direction. Leatherface and his cannibalistic clan are finally given a name with the returning Jim Siedow without doubt the highlight as the all-smiling patriarch of his dysfunctional family.
