Hooper and L.M. Kit Carson scripted a belated, sequel to the director’s horror classic, taking a more darkly laughing/screaming approach in revisiting the demented Sawyer family, and meeting with a (still) polarized response from fans. Dennis Hopper, then embarking on a career resurgence, plays an ex-Texas Ranger out for revenge on the clan and using radio deejay Caroline Williams as bait. Buccaneering indie studio Cannon Films disdained the X and released the picture unrated.
