Before he finally made Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, Hooper had a totally different idea for a sequel which he had titled Beyond the Valley of the Chainsaw Massacre

Buddy Giovinazzo(writer/director of Combat Shock) and Joe Spinell(Frank Zito in Maniac) were working on a sequel to Maniac. Maniac 2: Mr Robbie, they got as far as making a promotional short, but Spinell died before they could make a feature.

Buckaroo Banzai vs. The World Crime League was the planned sequel by the studio, but Buckaroo Banzai didn't make enough at the box office so the idea was scrapped.
