Who's ready to watch a classic Texas horror film? We definitely are, so how's about we all get together this Thursday online and watch the OG Lone Star terror, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre?
Here's the deal. Every day during the coronavirus lockdown, we've been recommending an Austin-made film to stream as part of our Now Streaming in Austin series. So far we've had comedy with Miss Congeniality, a double slice of local film history with Danger God and Also Starring Austin, a gritty slice of noir in Two Step, and a work from a local landmark filmmaker with Bob Byington's Frances Ferguson.
We're going to keep finding these wonderful reminders that Austin is a film town, complete with advice on where to stream them, but this Thursday we'll be picking the granddaddy of Austin indie cinema and arguably the greatest horror film of the 1970s: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.
So at 8pm Central on Thursday, March 26, we'll be livetweeting along with the film that shook America. Join us on Twitter (Screens Editor Richard Whittaker will be tweeting from his account @YorkshireTX) as we go into the history of the film, its place in local and national film culture, and just for a few good screams.
We have full list of everywhere it's streaming and available for download below (or you can just throw in your DVD, Blu-ray, or even that VHS copy) and follow along using the hashtag #NowScreamingInAustin with us. See you Thursday at 8pm!
