The folks at Scream Factory have just announced plans to release The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 on Blu-ray. The announcement states that the title will street sometime before Summer of 2016. It also reveals that this will be a ‘Collector’s Edition’. The distributor says that they don’t have any more specifics to share at this time but they did say to expect more details early in the new year.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is easily one of the most divisive horror sequels in any franchise. You typically either love it or hate it. And this one definitely has its fair share of haters. Personally, I think that Tobe Hooper knew it would be a fool’s errand to try and top the original, so he took it as far in the opposite direction as possible. And for that, I respect him. For a similar but more detailed assessment, you can read Nat Brehmer’s retrospective on the film here.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 sees the Sawyer clan tormenting a radio DJ played by the lovely Caroline Williams (Hatchet III). Bill Moseley stars alongside her as the delightfully deranged Chop-Top.
