“The film which you are about to see is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of five youths, in particular Sally Hardesty and her invalid brother, Franklin.”
Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre began terrifying audiences on October 1st, 1974, which means that we’re fast approaching its 43rd anniversary. But that’s not the day we’re going to be celebrating this year.
Because the day for celebration… is TODAY.
Over on Twitter, self-professed “horror movie nerd” @IsaacsHauntedB began a grassroots campaign earlier this week to “Make Texas Chain Saw Massacre Day happen” – after all, the events of the 1974 classic took place on August 18th, 1973!
“The Texas Chain Saw Massacre takes place on August 18th, so I’ll ask you daily to watch the film, this Friday,” Isaac tweeted earlier in the week. He reminded today, “Today is the date that The Texas Chain Saw Massacre takes place on. Please enjoy this masterpiece today.”
Issac also noted that August 18th just so happens to be the birthday of Chain Saw star Teri McMinn, who played the ill-fated Pam in Tobe Hooper’s masterpiece!
Will you be watching Texas Chain Saw Massacre tonight?!
