    Seen this movie 100 times, but never on the big screen. So glad it’s showing here at the Alamo drafthouse next weekend!! Wont be missing this one!!!

  • Robby

    Thanks for the heads up. Just ordered my tickets for next Thursday in Orlando. 🙂

  • PetCactus

    Why in the hell isnt this screening in Atlanta

  • fannypack aficionado

    Seems there’s a typo and Nashville wasn’t included.

  • Tor from Yucca Flats

    Nobody cares. with each release they keep making the quality more crisp. Tobe didn’t want it to look like that, he said the grainer the better. So did all the cast. FK off with restoring this movie.

  • lupe

    No screening of Texas Chainsaw Massacre in Texas? 😛 okkk

  • Hack Snyder

    No Connecticut screenings? 🙁

  • Aaron Johnson

    Seeing this movie on a big screen in any form is something every horror fan should do at least once. It’s a completely different experience. It seems more brutal on the big screen, somehow. And I also noticed things I had never noticed even after 50 plus viewings at home: Leatherface is wearing Pam’s bracelet at one point, when Leatherface kills Franklin his swinging of the chainsaw looked a lot more vicious, I don’t know why. Highly recommend it.

  • discochic

    boring, it sucked before, it will suck no matter what people do to it.

    • Hack Snyder

      You’re the most boring troll on this website. Get some new material, your “THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE IS THE WORST FILM EVER” shtick got old months ago.

  • pumkinheadfan VHS Forever!

    They screened the 4K version when I seen it at the drive-in in 2014. I’m not picky when it comes to how a film looks when I view it, but I will say that this version looks so crisp and clean it gives the film this whole eerie feeling that it could have been filmed yesterday(which really hasn’t had that feeling since it’s first release). I’ve always been more of a fan of Part 2, but seeing this version on the big screen, surrounded by horror fans was probably the best way to see it.
