Product Details


Product Description

Amazon.ca

This wild, operatic 1986 sequel to 1974's low-budget horror hit--The Texas Chainsaw Massacre--is an extraordinary film that demonstrates just how far filmmaker Tobe Hooper had grown in the interim between the two movies. (Between the two movies, Hooper directed, among other things, the Spielberg production Poltergeist, the critically admired Lifeforce, and the spooky remake of Invaders from Mars.) In Massacre 2, Hooper enlists Dennis Hopper as a Texas Ranger seeking vengeance against the flesh-eating family that was introduced in the first film. Meanwhile, a radio deejay (Caroline Williams) is kidnapped by the family and brought to their underground lair. The performances are crazed, terrifying, and comic; the chainsaw fights are practically epic; the lighting and camera work are artful; the emotions are strong; and the ending is astounding, unparalleled in its imagery and force. --Tom Keogh

5.0 out of 5 stars Scary, Funny and Sad May 20 2004
Format:DVD
Dennis Hopper stars in the greatest sequel in the series. Out to avenge the murder of his brothers kids, Lefty has tracked down our hero Leatherface and his wacked out family to a rundown amusement park. A DJ,stretch, has Leatherface and chop-top on tape killing a couple of punks and plays it on air for Lefty to help flush them out of hiding. Tom savini's gore effects are excellent, as usual, and this could be the last great film director Tobe Hooper has ever done. Bill Mosley, Bill Johnson and Dennis Hopper deliver top notch performances. The DVD is nice to have but is not 16x9 as listed, again MGM has dropped the ball on a great genre title and should re-visit this movie with a mack daddy special edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Texas Chainsaw Massacare is BACK!!!!! Jan. 1 2004
Format:DVD
I have not seen the first film(It looks better than this) or Leatherface:Texas Chainsaw Massacare 3 but I did see this film and it was GREAT! It's about a man named Lefty, who's looking for
a murderer and canibal named "LeatherFace". This Leatherface were's a mask made out of human fleash and has not been heard of for almose 15 years, when he last killed some people. Lefty gets true evadence that Leatherface is still alive when he comes and kills a man. Lefty also finds out about his family who are also canibles. The kill sences in this are great(lots of blood and gore if thats what your looking for). Now that I have seen this I really want to see the first and third film!(Not the fourth film, that looks bad)

5.0 out of 5 stars The buzz is back! Dec 25 2003
Format:DVD
It has been 13 years since Sally Hardesty, her brother Franklin, and their friends ran afoul of chainsaw wielding cannibals and Sally's cousin, a former Texas Ranger nicknamed Lefty, has not once stopped chasing the now considered folk legend maniacs. Then two young men in search of a party mess with the wrong people and Lefty is closer than ever to the killers. If only the pretty young disc jockey that recorded the attack would get out of his way...
Tobe Hooper showed that he still had it and was not afraid to pull out the stops with this blackly comic sequel to his cult smash, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Rather than waste time attempting to recreate the documentary type hellish horrors of the first, Hooper and screenwriter L.M. 'Kit' Carson (who provided script rewrites for Hooper's maligned Invaders from Mars remake) opted to hype up the comedy. Wisely they chose satire over camp and the result is a hilarious and harrowing journey into utter madness that is not for the faint of heart. Although Dennis Hopper is listed as the star, it is Caroline Williams's DJ character Stretch that is the focus of the story and she does a wonderful job, maintaining an almost perfect balance between out of control terror and hanging on by her fingernails sanity. Her facing down Leatherface has become a classic genre moment and is arguably the film's high point. But there are at least two or three other scenes just as powerful and the movie will echo in the mind long after the end credits have finished rolling. Sadly this was to be Hooper's last truly significant contribution to the horror genre. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars "Don't cry, my brother..." Nov. 16 2003
Format:DVD
If you're looking for a movie about the human spirit, or a movie that can change the world... then find something else. If you're looking for a brutal and disturbing slasher flick that's both ridiculous and cheesy (but is still a good time), then "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2" is the perfect thing for you. From the original source behind "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre," Tobe Hooper brings forth a disgusting and sometimes humorous sequel that will make you feel guilty for enjoying it.
Dennis Hopper plays a Texas Ranger, Lefty, who's bent on revenge and wants compensation in blood for the murder of his brother's children (from the original movie). A radio DJ may be his only hope of getting the murderers responsible, as she claims to have a tape of one of the murders taking place. The tape happened when a couple of goofballs decided to call her show, only to end up running into a chainsaw murderer and ending up dead. Lefty advises her to play the tape on air to draw the killer or killers out... the only problem is that the cannibalistic family has a record of "taking care" of witnesses in their own way. The results all lead up to a terribly disturbing and disgusting slasher flick that you won't forget (even if you want to).
Now, the movie is enjoyable if you take these few things under consideration: 1) This movie was not made with hopes of making it on the AFI list of Greatest Movies one day. 2) It doesn't live up to the original, so don't even think of setting your expectations that high. 3) This is a ridiculous and sometimes cheesy movie that its only purpose is really to shock, disgust, and perhaps even get a rise out of you. If you take all of these things into account, the chances of you enjoying this movie will increase.

3.0 out of 5 stars Hooper HAD to try something different... Nov. 4 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
There was no way that Tobe Hooper could top his ferocious horror masterpiece "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre." Part of the brilliance of that film was it's realism (due in part to the film's miniscule budget) and the fact that there is very little rationalization for the characters and events. The killers in the first film are complete strangers which the victims happen to stumble on and remain so as the protagonists are slaughtered before they can glean any backstory as to who these maniacs are. This approach is, obviously, insufficient for a sequel as the killers have been established previously and must now be given at least a bit of dimension. Also, the pure shock value of the first flick would be impossible to duplicate - the audience is already familiar with what the stakes of running into this bunch are. So, instead of making a retread of the first film, Hooper decided to take the sequel in an entirely new direction. Knowing he couldn't duplicate the terror of the first (partly) because of the aforementioned reasons, he decided to construct the sequel as a ultra-black comedy rather than a straight-up scare film. As can be evidenced by the other reviews on this site, the split is pretty much 50/50 as to whether folks believed he succeeded with this approach or not. It's a love it or hate it film. I feel it's rather impossible and unfair to hold it up against the original as NO ONE could ever top the original. So, taken on it's own terms, I think it's pretty good. No where near as brilliant or awful as many feel it is. Hooper manages some truly perverse, sick, bad-taste set pieces and laughs. Read more ›
