Celebrate the late, great Master of Horror Tobe Hooper with Cult Classics screenings of his legendary terror classic, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, in a digitally restored edition guaranteed to keep you screaming all night long!
“A bona-fide classic. Tobe Hooper’s unrelenting assault on the senses is one of the most streamlined, sadistic horror movies ever made, intent on just one thing: scaring the s**t out of you.” – Total Film
The family that slays together stays together in this all-time terror classic that asked the burning question, “Who Will Survive, and What Will Be Left of Them?” In 1974, writer/producer/director Tobe Hooper unleashed the low-budget scream-fest The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a nightmarish tale about a group of five young friends who decide to visit their late grandfather’s abandoned farmhouse in rural Texas, only to be hunted and terrorized by a chainsaw-wielding lunatic named Leatherface and his depraved family of grave-robbing, slaughterhouse-owning, barbeque-loving cannibals! Gritty, gruesome and downright terrifying (with plenty of nasty, pitch black humor to help fortify the scares), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remains unequaled as a landmark of outlaw filmmaking and unparalleled in its impact as one of the most frightening motion picture ever made, going on to spawn sequels, remakes, one prequel, comic books and even a video game. This digitally restored 40th anniversary edition of the beloved horror classic, featuring a dynamic new surround sound mix, was authorized by Tobe Hooper himself. (Dir. by Tobe Hooper, 1974, USA, 83 mins., Rated R)
