Hooper’s Eggshells Screening in L.A.


Chainsaw director’s first film!

Before he set loose Leatherface on an unsuspecting America, Tobe Hooper directed Eggshells and the Steve Allen Theater Drive-In in Los Angeles (4773 Hollywood Blvd.) is giving you a chance to see this “lost” ’68 film from the director of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Beginning December 4, the film – which screened to SXSW audiences in March – will get a midnight run at the Steve Allen (part of a limited theatrical run) before hitting DVD from Watchmaker Films.

Due to weather concerns the screenings may move from the outdoor drive-in screening to the indoor theater (at the same venue) at the end of December.

Eggshells is described as a trippy experience capturing “the Austin counter culture scene of the late sixties, new attitudes of sex, love, drugs and community are explored through this film which blends realism and the psychedelic in a seamless journey.”
