The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2

May 10 @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm

An explosion of 1980s excess

Exploding with day-glo visuals and over-the-top gallows humor, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 is not what audiences expected from recovering wunderkind Tobe Hooper in 1986. But that’s exactly what makes it so special. Using the surreal terror of the first movie as a jumping off point, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 plays out like a deranged form of vaudeville with Leatherface as a sexually frustrated straight-man. Featuring electric performances from Bill “Chop Top” Moseley, Caroline Williams, and a chainsaw-wielding Dennis Hopper, it’s time to praise this movie for what it is—a drop-dead masterpiece of subversive 1980s horror.

Screening from an archival 35mm print.
