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.
Widely banned on release, its notoriety has not diminished and this harrowing tale of a depraved Texan clan and its chain-saw-wielding icon of horror Leatherface continues to stun and disturb audiences like no other film.
‘This 40th Anniversary restoration is absolutely the best the film has ever looked,’ says director Tobe Hooper, who supervised the stunning 4K restoration, which also benefits from a new 7.1 audio mix. The film will be released in the UK as a two-disc limited edition Steelbook blu-ray stacked with brand new bonus features and a standard two-disc Blu-ray.
To celebrate its release on Monday 17 November, we have three copies of the Steelbook blu-ray to give away. If you fancy your chances, just answer the following question and send your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org with TEXAS CHAIN SAW BLU-RAY COMPETITION in the subject line.
