Celebrate the career of the late, great Tobe Hooper with his 1974 masterpiece of terror, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre – restored and remastered by MPI International in celebration of its 40th Anniversary!
Five youths on a weekend getaway in the Texas countryside fell prey to a butcher in a mask made of human skin and his cannibalistic family, and horror cinema would never be the same. Violent, confrontational, and shockingly realistic, director Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre terrified audiences in a way never thought possible when it was unleashed on a politically and socially tumultuous America in 1974. Facing a storm of controversy, censorship, and outcry throughout its troubled release, this masterpiece of horror has stood the test of time to become a landmark motion picture and cultural milestone.

“Leatherface has never looked and sounded so good – the restored version is absolutely stunning!” – San Jose Mercury News
“Morally retrograde it may be, but then so are nightmares. The point is that this one, though often crude and raw, really leads the imagination. What also works in its favor is that it doesn’t pretend to do anything more than scare the pants off you.” – Derek Malcolm, Guardian
“A genuine classic of the genre, a punishing, unrelenting nightmare that never allows viewers even a moment of sanity or security.” – Matt Brunson Creative Loafing
