The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 ★★★½

Added to: Tobe Hooper Ranked

I was totally ready for Dennis Hopper to scream: "I'll fuck anything that moves!" but that would've been... ooh so wrong in so many ways...

Anyway, somehow while born from parodying the original, this sequel became some sort of strange, fucked up metaphysical horrorshow on its own. It bears its own kind of creepiness and not in the least because of how and when it delves into the psychotic side of these monsters. It makes fun of how fucked up people get when they have a chainsaw in their hands, a machine that's capable of killing within seconds. Yet they let the pain these weapons can bring linger. There are no quick deaths. Everything is meant to cause as much sorrow as possible. Even putting the chainsaws in the hands of the heroes makes you shiver with fear. To be fair, watching a film about madmen fighting madmen; chainsaw against chainsaw; weapon against weapon; right now, in these times, that's hard to stomach to say the least...
