Throughout the film, many references are made to the "Red River Rivalry" or "Red River Shootout" in regards to the football game going on during the film. This was not invented for the film. As any avid college football fan can tell you, the "Red River Rivalry" is the common name for the animosity between the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas. The film takes place during OU vs. Texas weekend. See more »

Drive-in movie critic Joe Bob Briggs is listed in the end credits as "Gonzo Moviegoer," but his scene was cut prior to the film's release. Briggs would later complain about the cut in his newspaper column, blaming it (with tongue firmly in cheek) on the Russian premier Mikhail Gorbechev. See more »
THE Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE II is the tender coming-of-age story of a young man, Bubba Sawyer, and his first, awkward attempts to find True Love. Bubba comes from a dysfunctional family and he's so shy that he tries to hide behind a stitched-together mask made of human skin. He reaches out to strangers- with a chainsaw- in his clumsy attempts to communicate, but it seldom works out... Papa Sawyer (whose award-winning recipe for chili makes him the toast of Texas) does what he can to guide his misguided son through his formative years. Today's audiences may not be as shocked by this one as Yesterday's audiences, but I remember all too well the night I went to see it: the theater was empty when I walked in, and no one else showed up (nor were there patrons lined up waiting for the next showing when I left). It didn't take me long to figure out WHY. There HAVE been movies that left me queasy- THE EXORCIST, MARK OF THE DEVIL, the original DAWN OF THE DEAD, THE ELEPHANT MAN, etc.- but THE Texas CHAINSAW MASSACRE II was the first one to kill my appetite for two days after. I guess THAT kinda sums this one up for me: don't have dinner before you see it.
