Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
Tommy Jarvis goes to the graveyard to get rid of Jason Voorhees' body once and for all, but inadvertently brings him back to life instead. The newly revived killer once again seeks revenge, and Tommy may be the only one who can defeat him.
Radio DJ Vanita 'Stretch' Brock's open request night is plagued by the annoying phone pranking of two road tripping, party-hard, hoodlums, but things take a disturbing turn when the hoodlums meet their demise at the hands of familiar chainsaw wielding maniacs. With the entire gruesome ordeal recorded on tape, Stretch seeks out the help of a former Texas Marshall who's on a personal quest of vengeance against this family of cannibals. While at first he turns her down, he eventually decides to use her tape to his advantage, asking her to air it during her request block- effectively baiting the cannibals to the radio station where he'll personally deal with them.Written by

The original 1987 Canadian home video release was distributed by Astral Home Video (Media Video slipcase with an Astral sticker on it) and runs only 90 minutes instead of the US version which ran 101 minutes. The missing footage was cut due to graphic gore. See more »
Apparently only a select few of us horror fans really understand this movie. If you haven't seen it, you are really missing out. TCM2 is one of the the most brutal and bizarre movies ever made. Casual fans should probably stay well away from this one, because exploitation is the order of the day here. For you fans who like to be taken as far out as possible, this is a sure thing and you should see it without delay.
Tobe Hooper returns to direct, probably out of his love for the first movie, and what a blessing that he did. Many of the people that have reviewed this movie seem to have a problem with the switch over to comedy here. To those people I would say, "Hey man, the first one was a straight slasher pic that worked very well, keep enjoying it! This one, however, is another thing entirely, and it was meant that way!" Is this movie oscar material? No. Do I ever pay money to see movies of oscar quality? No. If you are reading a review of this movie, then chances are that you don't either. My advice is to put this one in and enjoy the ride.
In short, not only do they not make 'em like this any more... They only make 'em like this about once every 20 years or so. For serious horror/exploitation lovers, this is a gem! Everybody else stay away so I don't have to hear you whine about it.
10 out of 10!
