The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2

The family try to get their Grandpa to kill Stretch (in much the same manner they did with Sally in the first movie), but Lefty shows up and wounds Drayton with a chainsaw. Stretch flees, followed by Choptop, while Leatherface and Lefty duel with chainsaws. Drayton (hiding under a table) pulls out a grenade, and Lefty drives his chainsaw through Leatherface. Grandpa then tries to throw the hammer at Lefty, but hits Leatherface instead, who drops his chainsaw on Drayton, causing him to drop the grenade. Because the gas main had been ruptured earlier, the explosion destroys the theme park and (presumably) kills Lefty, Leatherface, Drayton and Grandpa. Stretch finds Grandpa's dead wife, and gets a chainsaw off the corpse. She then attacks Choptop, who falls off a cliff and into a pipe. The movie ends with her spinning her chainsaw in the same way Leatherface did at the end of TCM1.

Continuity mistake: When "Lefty" is at the car crash site, you see a blue mobile home going down the road, but it is not there in the next shot. (You may not be able to see this in the full screen version (4:3)).

Question: At the beginning, Stretch asks the two punks in the car to hang up so that the call can end and the phone line can be clear. Why? Why can't she just hang up and end the call? This makes no sense.

Chosen answer: That's how telephones worked back then. It has to do with the lack of a disconnect signal being sent by the called party, which phone companies have now. Back then when someone called another person, they were paying for the call and thus it was felt that they're entitled not to be hung up on and the line would not be "free" for the person being called, even after they hung up. This also meant if someone was called and they picked up in one room, they could say "hold on I'm going to switch phones", hang up, go to another room and pick up the phone and the caller would still be there. It was also a great way to scam or annoy people by calling them and not hanging up. Some countries still maintain this method of operation, largely because some people have become used to it, although nowadays it's by choice, not by technical limitation, and the length of time the line is held open is significantly reduced.


Yeah that's actually true. in the 80s we used to call up talk radio shows from isolated, seldom-used phone booths and then leave the phone off the hook. No more calls for hours until they straightened it out with the phone company. we called it 'jock blocking'.

That's not true my brother would prank call KDKA in Pittsburgh constantly they had no trouble hanging up. If people called our house there was no trouble hanging up.

That's exactly how it worked if the line didn't have a disconnect signal.
