The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 ★★★★★

A macabre masterpiece. Basically the perfect sequel, and close to being the perfect horror movie. The first fifteen minutes is amazing, and the film never drops in quality. All the sets are simply gorgeous. There is so much care and detail in all the locations that it is just as fun to scan each frame, as it is to follow the story. The lights underneath the carnival are incredible. I especially like when Stretch is running in the tunnel, the lights are perfect there.

Speaking of Stretch, Caroline Williams brings the thunder in this role. She is likeable, and also able to scream as well as the best of them. She is quite possibly my favorite horror movie heroine. I'm assuming that it helped playing across other actors giving their all.

The fun insanity of this movie is what makes it so appealing. It took me a few times watching the first film to really get it, but this one I was on board from the very first time I saw it. I love the insanity.
