Trailer and Dates for THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE Re-Release!!!
Hey guys! Horrorella here...
This year Tobe Hooper’s seminal work, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE turns 40. 40!!!!! Happy Birthday, Leatherface!
This little indie horror film that, despite having very little gore, managed to scare the living crap out of anyone who even went near it back in 1974, and still has the same effect to this very day. The film is utterly terrifying, and much of that is due to the low-budget production that put this baby together. It's such a raw film - from the story to the visuals to the sound design to the blunt brutality of it all - by the time it's all over you feel like one giant exposed nerve. It's utterly fantastic and an important cornerstone of horror cinema.
In celebration of this milestone, this film is receiving a restoration and theatrical re-release later this summer. So if you haven’t seen Leatherface tear it up on the big screen, this might be your chance. It's scheduled for a handful of cities at this point, and if you're within driving distance, I suggest a road trip.
