Radio DJ Vanita 'Stretch' Brock's open request night is plagued by the annoying phone pranking of two road tripping, party-hard, hoodlums, but things take a disturbing turn when the hoodlums meet their demise at the hands of familiar chainsaw wielding maniacs. With the entire gruesome ordeal recorded on tape, Stretch seeks out the help of a former Texas Marshall who's on a personal quest of vengeance against this family of cannibals. While at first he turns her down, he eventually decides to use her tape to his advantage, asking her to air it during her request block- effectively baiting the cannibals to the radio station where he'll personally deal with them.Written by

The film had major censorship problems in the Canadian province of Ontario. After seeing the film rejected three times by the Ontario Censor Board, distributor Pan-Canadian pre-cut 11 minutes out of the picture, including a huge elimination around the midpoint that deleted almost everything shown in the Sawyer family's underground slaughterhouse. Other eliminations included the shot of the Yuppie driver's head cleaved in two and spurting blood, and many of the wounds inflicted on each other by Chop Top and Stretch during the climax. Also, Chop Top only hits L.G. in the head with hammer once in this version, instead of dozens of times, and this single blow kills him (the sequence where the half-skinned L.G. comes back to life is among the other material dropped in the major cut mentioned above). This 89 minute edition of the movie was finally approved for exhibition in Ontario, but because of all the censorship delays, it opened a week later than in the rest of English Canada. See more »
"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has not stopped. It haunts Texas."
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is criminally underrated. I've noticed a lot of comments trashing this movie. It's a HORROR movie! It's also a SEQUEL to a horror movie! Where were your expectations people? What did you think you were going to be watching? I remember watching The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 as a kid, and it scared the s**t out of me. That opening bridge scene is incredible. It's one of the scariest sequences I've ever seen. Tom Savini's effects are top notch, the humor is well placed, and the acting is perfect for the genre. Bill Moseley (Chop Top) is something else. He's the reason I love this movie so much. He portrays one of the most memorable characters in recent horror history and I can't get enough of him. I do agree that Bill Johnson is not nearly as menacing as Gunnar Hansen in the role of Leatherface. But what's wrong with Tobe Hooper's direction? It's his story, let him tell it the way he wants to. I think Tobe Hooper succeeds in continuing the tale of one of the great horror icons. TCM 2 has loads of gore, campy acting, and instills a healthy dose of fear into it's viewer. What more could you ask of a sequel? And remember, the saw is family.
