TOBE HOOPER’S SON SHOT A ‘TEXAS CHAINSAW’ SPIN-OFF FEATURING CHOP TOP…BUT WE’LL PROBABLY NEVER SEE IT





It was only two weeks ago when I reviewed Arrow’s Blu-ray release of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, so I was most intrigued to discover, courtesy of Bloody Disgusting, that a spin-off sequel featuring Bill Moseley’ Chop Top was shot by Tobe Hooper’s son William Hooper. It seems that filming begun in 1998 and carried on until 2000, after which he ran out of money and post production could not be carried out. The trailer hit the net soon after, but nothing else happened until 2011 when Hooper tried to raise the money to complete the film via Kickstarter, but failed. Though this is the first I’ve actually heard of this, rumours have arisen a few times since about the film stil coming out but in 2011 Moseley, whom fans of the franchise will know later returned to the series in Texas Chainsaw 3D taking over the role of Jim Siedow’s Drayton, stated that he was pretty sure we’ll never get to see it.

SYNOPSIS:
Set years after the events of Chainsaw 2, All American Massacre catches up with Chop Top in a Texas psychiatric hospital – where he’s been for the last couple decades. When a tabloid news crew comes in to interview him, Chop Top spills the beans about his past, relaying his murderous deeds before ultimately carrying out a whole new massacre.

At least we have the trailer [which is below] as proof that the film was made! I must say I personally found Chop Top a rather annoying character, but I’d still like to see this.

I’m a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don’t really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly ‘have a life’, I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I’ve always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That’s not to say I don’t enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
