The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 ★★★

The chainsaw has to be the most depraved tool of death in any horror franchise. As such, Tobe Hooper's sequel to his deeply unsettling original creepfest is a little too comedically self aware for my taste—making the sequel essentially King Kong with a chainsaw—but his long linger on Caroline Williams' thigh and crotch as Leatherface is frozen in infatuation with his chainsaw aimed right at her privates was so discomforting that, I'm not gonna lie, I couldn't take it and fast forwarded a little just to make sure she didn't die after that disturbing display... so it was kinda good!

HOOPTOBER 3/32 - fulfills a Tobe Hooper film, duh.
