If you liked Dennis Hopper in Apocalypse Now, you'll love him as Lefty the chainsaw-slinging Texas cop hell-bent for revenge in this sweet sequel. Head chainsawed in the first five minutes: check. Wacky characterization of beloved horror characters: check. Automatic love from me: check. Plus, Bill Moseley comes back as the cousin of the original hitch-hiker character and steals scenes as a psychotic hippied-out Vietnam vet. The comedy doesn't fall flat here either as there's just too damn much of it. Skip the other stupid TCM sequels and go for the one that counts.
That would be this one. The second one.
