Watch The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - Alternative Versions.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is one of the most misunderstood movies of
all time. I saw Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 when it was released in
theaters back in 1986. I loved this horror flick then. But everyone
else hated it. Critics trashed it. Even many horror fans, of the first
Texas Chainsaw Massacre or slashers in general, hated it and dismissed
it. Now after a decade or so after its release, TCM 2 is now a bona
fide cult movie.
There are so many things to point out why TCM 2 is a stand-out. The
first and most important thing to point out is that back in the 1980s,
horror films were reduced to simple slashers. TCM 2 is totally
different than the plethora of slashers that many horror fans expected
to see, which is one reason why many horror fans didn't get it. The
body count is extremely low in TCM 2 compared to the Friday the 13th or
Elm Street flicks. But that doesn't mean it's not violent. No, it's
VERY violent. But the violence in TCM 2 is more engrossing, shocking
and even at times funny, and in turn less acceptable than the unreal
violence found in many slasher films. Because of the amount of violence
and violent imagery, films critics trashed TCM 2, pointing out how the
first film didn't rely on gore and violence to scare the audience.
I love Texas Chainsaw Massacre as much as I love TCM 2. I understand
what the critics were saying. Unfortunately, they didn't get the point
of the violence in TCM 2. While TCM is a sweat inducing TERRIFYING
horror film in the first order, TCM 2 is a "GRAND GUIGNOL HORROR"
horror film in the first order. In TCM 2, Hooper creates a vast canvas
of baroque imagery, where we watch the insane and gory story unfold
before our incredulous eyes. I'm amazed that critics missed the whole
difference between TCM and TCM 2. It's odd that critics will rave about
Peter Greenaway's "THE COOK, THE THIEF, HIS WIFE & HER LOVER" which is
a twisted drama in the the Grand Guignol style, but didn't see TCM 2 in
the same way. It's probably due to the fact that TCM 2 is a sequel to a
quasi-legendary horror film and everyone expected the sequel to be the
same as the first movie.
I give credit to everyone involved with TCM 2. They actually TRIED to
do something different: different from the equally great TCM, different
from the increasingly boring horror films of the 80s. And in my eye,
they've succeeded. There are so many memorable scenes in TCM 2, some of
which are the most amazing horror moments ever put on screen (when
Leatherface tries to put the scalped face on Stretch, the scene when
Stretch finds her friend sans face, etc). And there are so many
quotable lines too. TCM 2 is also a very funny film ("Rain, rain, rain,
rain..." Choptop says as he checks out records at the radio station).
TCM 2 is not perfect. The ending is abrupt. And the chainsaw fight at
the end is too short. Dennis Hopper is a bit hard to take as a "hero."
But he does play the "twisted hero" right. It's just difficult to see
him fighting big and burly Leatherface. BTW, the very last image of TCM
2 is Strecth dancing with a chainsaw in her hands at the top of that
amusement park structure. In the original film (and the original video
release), we can see cars and trucks driving by on a highway in the
distance. On the DVD, they cropped this shot and we don't see the
traffic anymore. Personally, I thought it added a LOT to the whole
surreal aspect of the film. Like the world was continuing on with its
relentless pace, no matter what had just happened that night. I wished
they didn't crop this shot on the DVD. Oh well...
It's a shame few people "got" TCM 2 back then. After reading the
reviews at IMDb and at Amazon, it's great to see that some are finally
"getting it." For anyone who's game, watch TCM 2. You'll be squealing
in horror and laughing at the insanity of it all in equal amounts.
