It’s the film that changed horror forever.
When The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was released in 1974, the world was introduced to one of genre cinema’s most esoteric and outlandish voices.
Now the Triskel is planning a suitably spooky tribute to the late director Tobe Hooper, who passed away in August of last year.
The atmospheric City Centre venue will screen the terrifying classic as part of their Tobe Hooper – Master of the Macabre season on Halloween Night, Wednesday, October 31st.
In case you’ve buried your head in the sand since the Seventies, the film is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of five youths when an idyllic summer afternoon drive became a nightmare, thanks to an encounter with an insane family of killers.
The Triskel will screen the terrifying classic on October 29th, 30th and 31st at 9pm. Book your tickets (€9) here.
