The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 starring Dennis Hopper, Caroline Williams, Jim Siedow, Bill Moseley, Bill Johnson (XI) The Buzz Is Back !!!!!!!!!! This wild, operatic 1986 sequel to 1974s low-budget horror hit--The Texas Chainsaw Massacre--is an extraordinary film that demonstrates just how far filmmaker Tobe Hooper had grown in the interim between the two movies. (Between the two movies, Hooper directed, among other things, the Spielberg production Poltergeist, the critically admired Lifeforce, and the spooky remake of Invaders from Mars.) In Massacre 2, Hooper enlists Dennis Hopper as a Texas Ranger seeking vengeance against the flesh- eating family that was introduced in the first film. Meanwhile, a radio deejay (Caroline Williams) is kidnapped by the family and brought to their underground lair. The performances are crazed, terrifying, and comic; the chainsaw fights are practically epic; the lighting and camera work are artful; the emotions are strong; and the ending is astounding, unparalleled in its imagery and force. --Tom Keogh The Sawyer family, led by patriarch Drayton, is well-named, since theyve long been fascinated with chainsaws: The saw is family Drayton says. As a small businessman, Drayton feels oppressed by high taxes and cut-throat competition, so he and his sons, Choptop and Leatherface (affectionately known as Bubba), put their chainsaws to effective use procuring cheap, high-quality meat for their barbecue business: The Rolling Grill. The Sawyers have strong family values -- Grandpa and Grandma are held in high esteem, the boys look after each-other, and Drayton works hard to provide for his brood (where the mother is, is unclear; its a Single Father household). In spite of these good qualities, the Sawyers have failed to embody one simple rule: love of neighbor. Havi ng failed in this, they have no qualms about procuring meat from unwilling victims of the human variety. This leads to many forms of debauchery, which must be seen to be believed. One such episode of debauchery is recorded by chance via car phone by a radio disc jockey, Stretch, who later is convinced by former Texas Ranger, Lefty Enright, to play the tape on the air, hoping to lure the killers out of hiding. Lefty has been searching for the chainsaw killers for 13 years -- ever since his brother Franklin and family members were chainsawed in the 1st movie. Lefty, planning to fight fire with fire, purchases 3 chainsaws: I aint got no fear, Lord he confesses. The Sawyers are, indeed, lured out. Brothers Choptop and Leatherface make mincemeat of the radio station and the production engineer, L.G., but Stretch manages to escape by using her wits and goes in chase (a very brave lady!) Both she and Lefty eventually arrive at the ruins of Texas Battle Land where the Sawyers live underground -- a Texas road-side- attraction version of Dantes Inferno, with bone and skull decorations, inhuman tortures, a labyrinth of doom. Before making his attack on this Devils playground -- seeking to bring it all down with his chainsaw -- Lefty takes a moment to compose himself: Oh Lord, help me beat this stranger that walks beside me and takes away my strength. Lord, you show me the end. Show me what I fear, so I dont fear it no more. Stretch suffers unspeakable torments at the hands of the cannibal family [the viewing is hard], but she has a strong will that gives her a fighting chance! (But what chance do we, the audience, have of facing these terrors unscathed? Show me what I fear, Lord, so I dont fear it no more.)
