    I actually prefer part 2 over part one......I know I know...the haters gonna come out of the woodwork now......but I just never really "got" Texas 1....I think because I watched it in the mid 80's...after seeing stuff like EVIL DEAD etc etc...Just didnt seem that great.....The CHARACTERS were great, the atmosphere, the set up ...but, the dinner scene and what came after kinda dwindled my interest......

    The dinner scene is exactly where I started getting annoyed, after originally being annoyed by stupid fucking dickhead Franklin. Whatsherface screaming and screaming and screaming, and the hammering taking forgoddamever.....no patience these days, I tell ya.

    Actually I agree with you. TCM Part 2 is my favorite of the series and my second favorite Tobe Hooper movie after Lifeforce.

    I saw part 2 first and prefer it to the original as well. Bes uset of a chainsaw as phallic symbol in the history of cinema.

    I guess if TCM didn't exist I would love 2 but it does and no other film has effected me more dramatically than TCM back in the 80's.
    2 sorta dilutes its effect.
