THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE
1974, MPI Media, 83 min, USA
Dir: Tobe Hooper

One of the best American horror films of all time. After hearing of a cemetery desecration, Marilyn Burns and friends go on a jaunt in the broiling Texas countryside to check on her grandparents’ graves, only to become stranded at the rural home of a family of inbred cannibals. Director Tobe Hooper expertly escalates the horror until you can’t stand it anymore! 35 mm!

 

THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, PART TWO
1986, Park Circus/MGM, 89 min, USA
Dir: Tobe Hooper

Director Tobe Hooper trades gritty reality and unease for satire and stylized visuals in this very different but no less assured sequel to his original masterpiece. Dennis Hopper plays a Texas lawman on the trail of Leatherface and his clan, who have found a way to profit from their homicidal tendencies: the creation of prize-winning chili made from their victims. 35 mm!

 

LEATHERFACE: TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE III
1990, Warner Bros., 85 min, USA
Dir: Jeff Burr

A California couple takes a road trip down the wrong stretch of Texas highway and comes face to dead-skin face with the Sawyer family. Leatherface revs up his chainsaw once again in this dark and twisted follow-up to Tobe Hooper’s original masterpiece.
