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 tearng 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 40th anniversary special features, Tobe Hoopers horror classic arrives completely restored and remastered in a vivid eye-popping 4K high-definition transfer - sharp enough to tear your nerves to shreds!
