The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 [Blu-ray]
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 --This text refers to an alternate Blu-ray edition.

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)
The movie is made up almost entirely of set pieces. From the Opening "On the bridge" murder of two college boys on vacation by Leatherface and his Vietnam Veteran brother to the operatic finale of madness featuring our Heroine, a local radio station DJ nick named Stretch (really, really well acted by Caroline Williams) , the movie does not let up. The Radio station attack sequence is awesome. The introduction of leatherface during this sequence is astonishing and the whole sequence is a wonderfully crafted example of a movie deftly creating the boundries of reality and fantasy in which it exists. The Vietnam vets interaction with Stretch in this sequence (before all hell breaks loose) is goose bump inducing in it's creepiness.
what makes this movie so scary is it's ability to make you feel like you would if all of this were happening to you. very rare in horror films, particularly of this day and age where we are treated more like observers than participants. Movies like Psycho, Rosmary's Baby, The Excorcist, Halloween and TCM-1 all do this. movies like scream (a good horror film), I Know what you did last summer ( a bad horror film)and the rest of the current offerings never put you in a postion of vulnerability and true danger. We are watching OTHER PEOPLE in danger. The experience between the two are wildly different.
Be warned: this movie contains scenes of extremely offensive violence.Read more ›
