Chance Hall’s review published on Letterboxd:
Take some key elements from the original, combine them with the attitude/excess of the Eighties, completely reverse the tone, and add a LOT of weird - that's the equation for the The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. With that in mind, it's exactly what you would expect and so much more. This is a film so loud and insane that it makes you forget that Dennis Hopper is even in it (until he reappears and kicks some ass). This is definitely one of those sequels that shouldn't be compared with the original because honestly, it feels like it exists in an entirely different universe. Also, it does the unthinkable and attempts to humanize Leatherface. Talk about some wild shit!
