This is a direct sequel to the revolutionary The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a visceral story of isolation, torture and cannibalism. It is early on noticeably more dynamic than the original and, although most of the favorable elements are brought back, the narrative structure, the photography, the emotional vibe and the set design are nothing alike.
The budget seems bigger, the narrative is more complex and bigger actors are introduced. The script gets eccentric, this sequel being generally weirder. The shocking moments are brilliantly orchestrated. The only recognizable antagonist is Leatherface, the chainsaw-wielding cannibal, but we can presume the rest of his family was simply recast. It is never really addressed.
It's highly entertaining and succeeds on many levels. It is atmospheric, creepy, and the violence is no longer suggested. We get a lot of convincing gore. The protagonists are sympathetic, in some cases heroic; as to reply to the rather depressing and hopeless original. The first half plays on suspense; the second is disorienting and submerges us in a surreal, hostile underground maze.
