The family that slays together stays together in this all-time terror classic that asked the burning question, “Who Will Survive, and What Will Be Left of Them?” In 1974, writer/producer/director Tobe Hooper unleashed the low-budget scream-fest The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a nightmarish tale about a group of five young friends who decide to visit their late grandfather’s abandoned farmhouse in rural Texas, only to be hunted and terrorized by a chainsaw-wielding lunatic named Leatherface and his depraved family of grave-robbing, slaughterhouse-owning, barbeque-loving cannibals! Gritty, gruesome and downright terrifying (with plenty of nasty, pitch black humor to help fortify the scares), The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remains unequaled as a landmark of outlaw filmmaking and unparalleled in its impact as one of the most frightening motion picture ever made, going on to spawn sequels, prequels, remakes, comic books and even a video game. This digitally restored 40th anniversary edition of the beloved horror classic, featuring a dynamic new surround sound mix, was authorized by Tobe Hooper himself. (Dir. by Tobe Hooper, 1974, USA, 83 mins., Rated R)
