The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (La matanza de Texas 2)

de Tobe Hooper

Synopsis

We have a different formulation of an exploitation movie with the hair-raising and amusing The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (86), sequel of the 1974 classic directed by the same filmmaker. Unlike the gloomy seriousness and hyperrealism of the first one, its continuation stands out for its caustic sense of humor (black, extremely black) the bloody (and abundant) special effects by Tom Savini, and the participation of Dennis Hopper, playing the part of a tense, vindictive Texas Ranger, capable of taking on Leatherface with his own weapons: a chainsaw… Hopper knew how to demystify himself without losing his essence.
