Rating:
R
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is a film from 1986, which is a sequel to the 1974 horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The film opens with a young radio DJ Vanita Brock (Caroline Williams), hosting a radio show when she receives a prank phone call from two drunken high school kids. While on radio, the two kids are attacked and killed by Leatherface (Bill Johnson). Former Texas Ranger Lieutenant Enright (Dennis Hopper), whose niece and nephew disappeared 13 years ago during the first film, arrives at the murder scene to help solve the boy's murder. Vanita contacts Lieutenant Enright to tell him of the audiotape she has of the boys' murder. After talking to Enright, Vanita is convinced to play the boys' murder tape over the radio the next night during nightly radio show, hoping that the murderer will show himself and give Enright a chance to finally catch the man responsible for the killings.

    Chicago Sun-Times Roger Ebert

    The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Part 2 carries a proud old name in the annals of exploitation, but its only ambition is to outgross the original film. It fails.

    Miami Herald Bill Cosford

    A movie about lunatics with chainsaws that is neither funny nor frightening. [25 Aug 1986, p.C5]

    Film Threat

    This movie is a great, big mess. It's never truly scary, and you get the feeling that Tobe Hooper's been living off the original flick's rep for so long that he didn't give a damn ...
