THE SAW IS BACK! Wyrd War is bringing cult actor Bill “Chop-Top” Moseley to Portland for a special one-night-only screening of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 (1986)! Tickets available HERE! There will be a chili cook-off contest before the film at the Wyrd War gallery! 

When a radio DJ accidentally airs the violent murder of two football fans heading to the Texas Cotton Bowl, it soon becomes clear that the cannibalistic Sawyer Family is up to their dirty deeds again! Dennis Hopper stars as Lieutenant Lefty Enright, an unhinged former Texas Ranger who must enter a terrifying underground hellscape of carnival detritus in an effort to destroy the feral clan once and for all. Naturally, it does not go well. Often described as “the most Tobe Hooper film,” TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 is a subversive middle finger to Cannon Films that gleefully transgresses all restraint and expectations. Featuring a blistering performance by Bill Moseley as Chop-Top, and co-starring Caroline Williams as DJ Stretch, Bill (FUTURE KILL) Johnson as Leatherface and veteran Jim Siedow, who gleefully reprises his role as the award-winning BBQ chili cook, and with grisly gore effects by Tom Savini – all set to the music of The Cramps, Oingo Boingo, The Lords of the New Church, Concrete Blond and Stewart Copeland – THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2…goes farther! 

Bill Moseley will be in attendance to spin tales of madness and mayhem in a Q&A moderated by Dennis Dread immediately following the screening. Advanced tickets are recommended.
