On Saturday, April 5th, at 11:59pm, Horror Movie a Day will be hosting a special screening of Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III at the New Beverly Cinema. The film is notorious for being the final film to be granted an X rating before the MPAA instituted the NC-17 rating in an effort to negate the sexual connotation of the X rating. Of course, New Line ended up butchering the film in order to get a box office-friendly R rating. The film was eventually released uncut on VHS and DVD. The version screening at the New Beverly is the heavily edited theatrical version, BUT it is likely the first time the 35mm print has been screened since the original theatrical release.
