Chop Top. Hands down. Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 is my favorite in the franchise, and it’s probably mostly due to the dialogue perfectly delivered by the great Bill Moseley in his most iconic role. Every seen that he is in is the best scene in the movie. I laugh at everything he says. I quote him endlessly (even incorrectly) and I use his one-liners to refer to common day afflictions (like scalp itch or telling assholes to “lick my plate”).
His energy is contagious and jumps right off the screen especially when put up against the rather feisty and super courageous Caroline Williams as Stretch. He plays off Bill Johnson perfectly. He’s almost half man, half cannibal, half muppet.
Here are some of my favorite quotes from the movie along with a clip of him delivering them.
“Dog will hunt”.
“Peel that pig and slice him thick”.
“Her, not me you dumbass! Leatherface, you bitch! Look what you did to my Sonny Bono wig do... oh, goddamn I can't believe it! You gonna have to buy me a new plate cover! You gonna have to buy me a new plate cover, Leatherface! Oh... I'm gonna have to go back to the VA hospital to get me a new plate cover!”
Bill Moseley is an amazing actor. He satisfies me even when movies that he is in do not satisfy, and he gave me something new to fear in House of 1000 Corpses (with some moments of dark comedy as well). He’s a sweetheart of a guy in person, answers all questions and is a fantastic musician. This all aside from my favorite funny Horror character of course, but it’s worth repeating.
