1988, 75 min, Dir: Fred Olen Ray

What starts out a typical runaway teen case leads private eye Jack Chandler dead smack into a cult of Egyptian chainsaw-worshipping prostitutes. Now he must risk life and limb against a horde of Black and Decker wielding ladies of the night. Starring scream queens Linnea Quigley and Michelle Bauer and featuring the original TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE’s Leatherface Gunnar Hansen, HOLLYWOOD CHAINSAW HOOKERS plays out as if Philip Marlowe stepped out of the BIG SLEEP and into H.G. Lewis’ BLOOD FEAST.

1974, MPI Media, 83 min, USA, Dir: Tobe Hooper

One of the best American horror films of all time. After hearing of a cemetery desecration, Marilyn Burns and friends go on a jaunt in the broiling Texas countryside to check on her grandparents’ graves, only to become stranded at the rural home of a family of inbred cannibals. Director Tobe Hooper expertly escalates the horror until you can’t stand it anymore!
