After the gorgeous and artful terror of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was a hit, director Tobe Hooper was asked to make a sequel. Hooper chose to ramp up the gore and make the sequel even more of a black comedy than the first. Jim Siedow returns as The Cook; Bill Moseley joins the cast as Chop Top; Caroline Williams stars as Stretch Brock and Dennis Hopper dons a cowboy hat and twin chainsaws as Lefty Enright, looking for vengeance. Maniacal and deranged, this movie goes for the gusto.

What Lies Beneath (2000)

What Lies Beneath is a more stately scary movie directed by Robert Zemeckis and starring Harrison Ford, Michelle Pfeiffer, James Remar, and Diana Scarwid. It's a big-budget terror tale and a ghost story about a rich couple living in Vermont whose quiet life is disturbed by a mysterious presence.
