Let this be the summer (if you haven’t already done so) to finally work up the courage to see Hooper’s criminally underrated classic, a top-rank satire of American class warfare (survival of the hungriest), teenage misadventure in the backwoods and one of the darkest masterpieces of the ’70s. Though shrouded in a gruesome reputation generated by that title, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre isn’t particularly gory. It is, however, one of the scariest movies ever made. Luckily, this is Cinespia, so even though the screening takes place in a cemetery, there will be plenty of people around to minimize your terror. Plus booze. Booze always helps.
