    New High-Definition Transfer from 4K Source with 7.1 Surround Mix & Spectacular New Special Features!

    Who Will Survive And What Will Be Left Of Them?

    A tale far too horrific to be real – a van full of friends, a dusty back road in Texas, the thud of a mallet, the buzz of a chainsaw, muted screams and the tearing of flesh… Considered by many as the bloody benchmark of horror movies, the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a visceral experience like none other. Inspired by the real-life story of murderer Ed Gein, it follows five young students who unwittingly meet up with a sinister hitchhiker (Edwin Neal) and stumble across a house of horrors where mask-wearing maniac Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) rules with a wooden mallet and the ultimate weapon of torture – a whirring chainsaw. Now, presented with all-new special features, Tobe Hooper’s horror classic arrives completely restored and remastered in vivid high-definition, sharp enough to tear your nerves to shreds!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Remaster I was so close to buying the original BluRay release of this film on BluRay when I heard that they were remastering the film very thoroughly to make it even more clear so I waited for it to come out then I purchased it from JB Hi Fi straight away. Too my great surprise this film features a 7.1 audio track which I have only seen done once for a classic horror film and that was the US BluRay release of "Maniac Cop 2". The picture quality has been dramatically improved in a very noticeable way and is like watching the difference between the original AU BluRay release of "RoboCop" (1987) and the newly remastered BluRay. This film was given the all out treatment and features a variety of incredible special features including an original theatrical trailer. This is a great classic horror film and remains the staple of the genre and is well worth any horror fans time. It's got a very raw documentary type atmosphere which just adds to the awesomeness of this classic violent slasher film. I highly recommend this film to any classic movie fan or any horror fan as this is a great film from Tobe Hooper who would later make... "Poltergeist".
