17-06-2019 12:00:00 17-06-2019 12:00:00 America/New_York The Texas Chainsaw Massacre | 10:00 pm Marilyn Burns, Allen Danziger, Gunner Hansen, Jim Siedow, Edwin Neal, Teri McMinn, John Dugan, Paul A. Partain Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of a handful of films that punctuate the very life-blood of cinematic history. Intensely brutal with very little reprieve or consideration for the audience, it came out of a rift of a socio-cultural framework, bursting onscreen with the evisceration of the family structure, youth culture, and cultural fragility in a post-Vietnam United States. Like Night of the Living Dead did five years earlier, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre reveals the unraveling framework of society and places the possibility of horror/death to occur anywhere; not in the Gothic castle nor in the fields of Vietnam but, more terrifyingly, in our surrounding neighborhoods. The film also reveals one of the first final girls (Sally) in the American slasher genre. http://www.cityguideny.com/eventinfo.cfm?id=383717 Prospect Park Prospect Park
