Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (w/ writer David Schow and cast members Ken Foree and William Butler in person!)

Co-presented by Blumhouse

After Tobe Hooper steered the Chainsaw franchise into gonzo comedy with number two, director Jeff Burr brought back the backwoods terror with Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III. In 1990 the slasher boom of the 80s was in its death throes and aside from a clever and memorable Excalibur spoof trailer this film was largely overlooked – which is a shame because it’s a fast, fun, and twisted entry. A couple on the rocks run afoul of our now extended chainsaw clan – which features a deliciously oily pre-fame Viggo Mortensen, slimy support from Tom Everett, and a heroic turn by horror superstar Ken Foree. Plus, the chainsaw itself gets an upgrade – and boy is it a doozy. A gruesome good time and a must-revisit for the whole skin mask wearing, people eating, chainsaw wielding family.

Dir. Jeff Burr, 1990, 35mm, 85 min.
