"You have one choice, boy: sex or the saw. Sex is, well... nobody knows. But the saw... the saw is family." - this dialog from Texas Chainsaw Massacre II illustrates the different take on the Sawyer family director Tobe Hooper has in mind for the sequel to grimy drive-in hit from 1974. Chop-Top joins Drayton and Leatherface as they encounter a pair ready for their blood rampage in DJ Stretch Brock and Lieutenant 'Lefty' Enright. Thomas Mariani and Doc Rotten tackle another gruesome horror film from the 1980s.

Decades of Horror 1980s
Episode 81 – Texas Chainsaw Massacre II (1986)

A dozen years after the original film changed the face of horror, Tobe Hooper returns to Texas enlisting L.M. Kit Carson to script a tale of gruesome horror and the darkest of humor while the Godfather of Gore, Tom Savini, is on board to supply the bloody special effects. Bill Moseley turns in a career defining performance as Chop-Top while Bill Johnson provides a softer but no less deadly side to Leatherface as he falls for the DJ who recorded their latest kill. Caroline Williams plays Stretch who fights to the bitter end to survive the Sawyer family giving horror the most versatile scream queen ever. Dennis Hopper has Stretch's back as Lefty Enright, a driven Lieutenant hell-bent on eradicating the family responsible for a slew of murders including the death of his nephew, Franklin. Gory, hilarious, exhilarating and unique, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre II is one of the few horror films released to theaters with an NC-17 rating (or unrated). NC Director Christopher G. Moore joins Thomas and Doc to discuss the epic chainsaw battles in this 1986 under-appreciated classic.
