Long be­fore chain­saw­tot­ing ma­ni­acs be­came a sta­ple of Hal­loween haunted houses, Leatherface was tor­tur­ing poor Sally and Franklin Hardesty in 1974’s “Texas Chain­saw Mas­sacre.”

Lo­cal film buffs will get a chance to see Tobe Hooper’s con­tro­ver­sial slasher flick the way it was meant to be seen — with a scream­ing au­di­ence shar­ing in the terror — when Mor­bid Movies screens the fully re­stored “Texas Chain­saw Mas­sacre” at 9:30 p.m. Aug. 7 at the Movies of Lake Worth.

This will mark the third event in the group’s Palm Beach County Grind­house Se­ries.

In April, Mor­bid Movies showed Kinji Fukasaku’s “Bat­tle Royale,” fol­lowed by a June screen­ing of Sam Raimi’s “Evil Dead 2.” Or­ga­niz­ers say the cult-movie se­ries will be­come a monthly event this fall.

“Chain­saw” tick­ets are $10. Movies of Lake Worth is at 7380 Lake Worth Road and can be reached at 561-968-4545.
