‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ Gets Restoration Screenings to Celebrate its 40th Anniversary, New Trailer


In lieu of the 40th Anniversary of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic, the film that changed the face of horror forever has received a new, restored print that is set to tour select theaters across the country starting this Saturday.

Along with this new set of screenings (which you can check out a list of below), the powers at be have also cut together a fantastic new trailer for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre that proves the dance of the chainsaw is as breathtaking now as it was all those years ago.

Check out the trailer below and, if it’s coming to a theater near you, the new restored print. We here at Morbidly Amusing will be sure to do the same.
