The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 ★★★★★

"You have one choice, boy: sex or the saw. Sex is, well... Nobody knows. But the saw... The saw is family."

Every time I watched The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 before today I was blinded by the romantic comedy aspects of the film and the relationship issues that our young couple faced. It kept me from appreciating the other themes of the film, such as family and the lengths that the small businessman needs to go to in order to keep his small business going in this country of huge corporations. Today, however, I was able to look past the obvious themes of young love/lust and focus on the film as a whole and my eyes were opened to the wonder of it all. I think I finally realize what Tobe Hooper was trying to say and it is glorious.
