Tobe Hooper's THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 is a deliciously weird follow-up to his original masterpiece that's about as divisive as a cult film can be. However, the new Collector's Edition Blu-Ray from Scream Factory treats the film like it's CITIZEN KANE, which is why I love them.

Honestly, it might even be worth it if you hate the film. TEXAS CHAINSAW 2 is one of Hooper's incredibly strange films from his time at Cannon Films, and the behind-the-scenes stories are certain to be truly insane. The 2-disc collector's edition comes out on April 9th. You can pre-order your copy right here!
Chainsaw-wielding maniac Leatherface is up to his cannibalistic ways once again, along with the rest of his twisted clan, including the equally disturbed Chop-Top. This time, the masked killer has set his sights on pretty disc jockey Vanita "Stretch" Brock, who teams up with Texas lawman Lefty Enright to battle the psychopath and his family deep within their lair, a macabre abandoned amusement park.
THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 stars Caroline Williams, Bill Moseley, JIm Siedow, and Bill Johnson with effects by maestro of gore Tom Savini.
