The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 ★★★½

Film #14 of Hoop-tober 4.0

When I heard this was a more dark-comedic entry to the series I was a little hesitant, it felt like Hooper saw Evil Dead 2 and thought 'Damn that'd be a great thing to replicate with my 13 year old film'. Thankfully, that wasn't the case; this film maintains the same disturbing almost psychedelic happenings as the first while straying more into the a gorier and more light hearted story. The characters are fleshed out exceptionally better than in the first film. The only drawback to this is that the comedic elements are a bit too bizarre at times and feels very silly.
