‘The Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ Celebrates Restoration With New Trailer For Theatrical Re-Release

Written by on June 18, 2014 


After screening at SXSW and stopping by Cannes (with an introduction from Nicolas Winding Refn), one of the scariest, most grisly films ever made is returning to theaters. Tobe Hooper‘s 1974 classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre recently went under a five-month process of digitally scanning and correcting Hooper’s original 16mm A/B rolls, thanks to NOLO Digital Film in Chicago.

It’s now ready for its theatrical release, which kicks off next week at Film Society of Lincoln Center and will continue throughout the summer. With Hooper stating it’s “absolutely the best the film has ever looked,” the new print features a 4K scan and a newly re-mastered 7.1 soundtrack. To celebrate its restoration, we’ve now got a fantastic new trailer that can be see below.
