In addition to the usual reviews and comments you would find on a horror movie blog, this is also a document of the wonderfully vast horror movie section of the video store I worked at in my youth.

Trailer Tuesdays: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

For reasons that will become evident tomorrow, I'm posting the trailer for Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2.

This is such a whacked out film. I feel like this was the only direction this franchise could have gone to survive in the shadow of its predecessor. Hooper ramped up the black comedy (that was evident in the first film but not recognized until much later) and somehow made the villains (and heroes alike) even more maniacal. This is just another reason why the eighties was a beautiful time to be a horror movie fan.
