The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 ★★★½

Hooptober Cinco (7/33)

Tobe Hooper, along with writer L. M. Kit Carson, knew they couldn't match the results of the first Texas Chainsaw Massacre. So, he decided to do a black comedy as a sequel, a sort of parody of his original creation. And works, probably better than a "serious" continuation of the saga. Besides, just like in the first movie, makes the meat look disgusting: his substance looks gross, and again Hooper makes a commentary on the meat business. After the film finished, i had a nauseous feeling, I'm really thinking about being a vegetarian again (just to fail in the attempt)

It's also worth noting how the work of Rob Zombie has been influenced by Hooper, just by watching this film.
