"The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" - 40th Anniversary screening!
PURCHASE TICKETS

VIEW TRAILER

(Horror) Four decades haven't blunted the cutting edge of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Not even the onslaught of sequels (the first of which, also under Hooper's direction, is actually kind of brilliant), rip-offs (Juan Piquer Simón's Pieces being one of the looniest), and a couple of pitiful stabs at a remake could manage such a seemingly impossible task. The film has achieved the perfect storm necessary for enduring notoriety: It's a masterwork that flawlessly mirrors the time and place of its origin, while, at the same time, remaining one for the ages, thanks to its uncanny power of nearly subliminal suggestion, avant-garde editing and sound design, and its uncompromising vision of an American consumerist society run amok. - Budd Wilkins 'Slant' Bluray review
