TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE II is a bad movie. This movie could have been made without reference to the original. It was like they used the set for THE GOONIES on this film with the underground area. Dennis Hopper was involved in this movie, but it dosn't help. Over all the film was disturbing at parts like when Leatherface put the pealed off skin from that live guy and puts it on the girl, but Leatherface just ran around running his chainsaw most of the movie and the images were not as haunting as the original. The film was effective in wanting the audience wishing for the end of this disturbed family. You really wanted to see them done away with, they were really insane.

If they were trying to make a comedy out of the film then I think they needed Bruce Cambell for Hoppers role, because this was just a wacky kind of film and he could have given it a the feel it needed as a comedy. Cambell could have added to the insanity and add that Peter Jackson fellow for special effects and they may have had a movie.

On a scale of 1-5

Atmosphere = 0
Insanity = 5
Entertaining = 2

Dennis Hopper has totally dis-owned TCM 2, I can't say that I blame him.

It's best to keep away from TCM 4: The Next Generation.

Bah.  They weren't going for disturbing, really just for insane laughs.  And I think they pulled it off.  I though Dennis Hopper was AWESOME as a man bent on Holy Vengence.  And maybe it's just me, but I thought most of it was hilarious.Scott wrote:

TCM 2 wasn't too bad. But it was a total change from the first movie. I like TCM 2 and would give it 3 slimes. Part that freaks me out everytime I watch this movie is how leather face's brother scraps a wire hanger across his scalp. I had the uncut anchor bay vhs from 1996 or 97 but I see it is out on dvd now, that took awhile.

All I know is, stay the hell away from TCM: The Next Generation.  Unless you really need to see Matthew McConaughey torturing and killing people, that movie is absolutely a waste of everyone's time.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
