The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

4

More chainsaw, more massacre...

Tobe Hooper never bettered his original, but he never besmirched it either.

Though plagued by production problems – none to do with wayward star Dennis Hopper, incredibly – this belated sequel boasts moments of dirty brilliance as it trades the original’s raw terror for demented comedy with the gibbering Leatherface (newbie Bill Johnson), Vietnam vet Choptop (the memorably deranged Bill Mosely) and returning cook Jim Siedow.

This triple-disc edition does it proud.
