The Texas Chain Saw Massacre | Tobe Hooper praises the 40th Anniversary restoration of his terrifying masterpiece
‘The most purely horrifying horror movie ever made. Genuinely disturbing, even now’
‘Chainsaw-wielding Leatherface remains one of the most disturbing characters in horror’
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre not only changed the face of horror in 1974, but still remains one of the most shocking, powerful and terrifying films ever made. Now to celebrate its 40th Anniversary, a brand new restored version comes to Blu-ray courtesy of Second Sight on 17 November.
