The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)

Release Date: 2009-01-21

Relive the gore and grandeur of the splatter film with a special drive-in-style screening of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Hooper’s low-budget exploitation film became an overnight cult classic, cementing the genre in addition to spawning a number of sequels, prequels, and remakes. Augie’s Barbed Wire Smokehouse will be serving up meaty hunks of barbecue — if you can stomach it — in addition to $2 Lone Star and domestic and import bucket specials. Free, 10pm, Augie’s, 3709 N. St. Mary’s, (210) 735-0088.
