Screenings in the Bay (Friday to Sunday): The Void, TerrorVision, Texas Chainsaw Massacre

What a weekend! I don't know why, but it seems like all the theatres that have been quiet on the horror front decided to screen all their favorites. Take the New Parkway Theatre for example. They're showing to classics back to back. And in a pleasant turn of events, the Super Shangri-La Show double feature for this week is being held on Saturday as part of the Balboa's Beer Movies series. That means your ticket includes a can of beer, as well as a cool double feature.

VOD is also looking great!
Most of the new releases are being shown in a limited number of theatres, but if none of them are playing near you, there's always the rental route.

And we're going to miss all of it! But we're at Monsterpalooza so it's hard to complain 😁

Just as Hitchcock's Psycho was based on the life of deeply disturbed farmer Ed Gein, so is this little story of depravity and dementia. When a sister and her brother take a group of friends to visit the farmhouse of their deceased grandfather, they discover that just next door lives a whole family of repugnant psycho killers. Most noteworthy is "Leatherface" who is the bloke who wields the power saw and has a penchant for human flesh. Though the film did not enjoy immediate success at the box office, it has since gathered a hefty cult following. Directed by Tobe Hooper, Texas Chainsaw Massacre is considered by many to be groundbreaking work in the genre of horror.
