The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2: Thoroughly strange film
In 1974 upon the release of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre it was immediately met with shock and became an overnight sensation. It was horrifying and people had seen little like it before.
It's creators clearly never saw the potential for a franchise as it took twelve years before a sequel came out.
Tobe Hooper returns for this odd little film, odd because it follows a dark gritty horrific gory serious horror with a colourful campy and often comedic effort.
The movie revolves around the demented Sawyer family and the random killing sprees they go on. But when they get outed by a DJ they go after her for revenge. Add to that Dennis Hopper as a former US Marshall who is as crazy as the family themselves and you have a the recipe for a gory riot.
Trouble is I couldn't take it seriously, it simply didn't feel like a TCM movie! It was loud, colourful and the jokes flowed freely. Leatherface doesn't even get anymore screen time than the rest of the family and even he is goofy and no longer scary.
I have no idea what they were thinking when they made TCM 2, but it sure as hell doesn't work.
The screaming, really!?
Such a crazy shift in genre
Sudden and dumb finale
Things I Learnt From This Movie:
LG has the hardest skull in the history of movies
"The sex" is a swindle
Chainsaw "Sword" fights aren't as exciting as you'd imagine
