Editorial Reviews

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-directorTobe 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.

First, the movie. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is probably one of the scariest movies ever made. It was unique for its time, and there's still nothing quite like it today. The plot doesn't sound like much- 2 women and 3 men make a drive to rural Texas to check out a graveyard that has been 'defiled', and to also relax and enjoy themselves. This last part of their vacation plan doesn't go real smoothly, as they make the mistake of wandering into an area where an insane, backwoods, inbred, cannibalistic sociopathic family live. Things get more and more horrifying from there.
I've heard people complain this movie isn't scary and not gory enough. As far as the gore, it is fairly low-key by today's standards (though I'm sure my mother wouldn't want to watch it, and it couldn't be shown un-cut on regular network TV). There's not a lot of blood till the end of the movie, but the acting is so good, and the screams of the victims so wrenching, your imagination fills in the rest and it actually is painful to watch. I will agree that the movie is kind of slow to get started- I admit the first time I saw it as a teenager I was getting impatient for some action. However, the last half of the movie more than makes up for it.
But if you think this movie isn't scary, I seriously doubt you've watched alone, at home, at night, with all the lights off. The first time I saw it was in the daytime, and it still made my hair stand on end. When I got the Special Edition DVD I unwisely watched it after midnight with the lights off. I couldn't sleep until the sun came up. The opening scene of the rotting corpse in the cemetery wired to a headstone alone made my skin crawl.

Format: DVD
As a massive horror fan from the UK (where this film is banned) I had to wait many years to see this film, and after all the hype and expectations which I had built up I was half expecting to be dissapointed when i finally watched it...how wrong could I be? This film had me gripped instantly. The film builds up suspense like no other and when the murders do actually happen they are not ruined, like many other horrors, by almost comical deaths, they are nasty! This film is gritty and raw, with documentary like visuals which only add further to the sense of fear which you can almost smell. The acting is brilliant, its laid back yet energetic at the same time. Never have I seen fear portrayed as realistically as Marilyn Burns haunting display in this movie (but then again I never looked at myself in the mirror while watching the film). All of the factors in this film mix to make an evil couldron of depravity, that'll make you too afraid to look but even more scared when you close your eyes. This film is the freakiest i've ever seen and to say i enjoyed it seems kind'a sick as the killings are so realistic and depraved, but there's no denying it, I loved it.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
When I saw that a 40th Anniv. Edition of this classic film was coming out, I actually held out for awhile. I owned the previous Ultimate Edition of TCSM, and there seemed to be only a few extra features planned for the new release. After Amazon dropped the price to $19, I thought "What the hay. Go ahead and order it." When it came in, there was one thing that I did NOT like about it. It was the size of a DVD case, which means it really stands out when on the shelf with other Blu Rays. But that is just a minor quibble. I watched the movie, and thought, "You know, this picture doesn't really look that much better than the other release." Immediately after viewing the new 40th anniv. edition of the film, I decided to pop in the Ultimate Edition Blu Ray and compare picture to picture. As soon as the first title appears, I knew then that there DEFINITELY was an upgrade made to this film. Those very first titles look more cream colored on the previous blu ray, while they were clearly yellow on the new one. I also went back and forth on a few scenes, and there really is a difference between this new blu ray and the previous one. Once scene where the difference is very noticeable is when the first victim is looking through the screen door to see if anyone is home. In the new version, you can clearly see the individual squares of the screen, and the brown rust and dirt on it. In the Ultimate Edition, that clarity is really lacking. You don't see the details, and the color is really washed out. So, even though this new scan might appear to still be very "grainy", if you compare side by side with the Ultimate Edition, you will be able to see the difference as I did.Read more ›

DarkSky Films releasing has really outdone themselves with the deluxe treatment of "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre". There are a wealth of extras included here, so many that it is difficult to get through them all in any reasonable amount of time (but I'm grateful for this copious surplus, as I imagine other horror fans are). One gets 4 items included in this package, two Blu-Rays and two DVDs, each transferring the same content, so that one can watch on either a DVD player or on the Blu-Ray. The package/box is also quite neat, with the bloodied face of a traumatized Marilyn Burns adorning one flap, a picture of the Leatherface house implanted upon the other--it's a foldout, so if you are one who wishes to keep digital discs in snapper cases, this box most likely won't please you. Nonetheless, this is THE essential collector's set for anyone who wants to own this piece of film history. The original disc has four--read that, FOUR--separate audio commentary tracks which are detailed in the listing of extras on Amazon, and they range from informative to joyous to fecund--chief amongst the latter is Hooper's solo commentary, in which he guides a viewer (in his languid but not unpleasing tones) through the making of the film and the ideas that may have unconsciously inspired this masterpiece. The cast commentary is great fun, and the chief one worth listening to. The audio commentary track featuring editor Larry Carroll is required listening for anyone interested in learning how the frame by frame technique of film presentation actually works (let's face it folks, if anyone wishes to learn about filmmaking, where it's at is in B-film and budget movies, not the Hollywood darlings).Read more ›
