The classic horror flick is getting a 4K restoration and an all-new Blu-ray release this September. You can pre-order it here.
In an early announcement to retailers, MPI will be releasing 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Edition' on Blu-ray on September 16.
It has been called "grisly," "sick," and "perverse," as well as "raw," "unshakeable," and "the movie that redefined horror." It was attacked by churches, banned by governments, and acclaimed by only the bravest of critics. It stunned audiences worldwide and set a new standard in movie terror forever. In 1974, writer-producer-director Tobe Hooper unleashed this dark, visionary tale about a group of five young friends who face a nightmare of torment at the hands of a depraved Texas clan. Today it remains unequaled as a landmark of outlaw filmmaking and unparalleled in its impact as perhaps the most frightening motion picture ever made.
Specs and supplements haven't been revealed yet, but the suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
