40 years ago, Leatherface stalked the backwoods of Texas, scaring a whole generation of moviegoers in the iconic horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
In honor of its momentous anniversary, MPI/Dark Sky Films is rereleasing a fully restored and remastered version of the 1974 classic, and they've released an amazing, fully resorted trailer online.
The remastered version used the original 16mm footage shot for the movie, and converted it to 4K resolution, and the process was supervised by director Tobe Hooper.
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was massively influential, and it's legendary serial killer Leatherface, played Icelandic actor Gunnar Hansen, has gone on to become one of the most recognizable villains in the pantheon of killer bad guys.
If you're a fan of horror, check out this amazingly well-restored trailer. But be warned, it's kind of gruesome, super scary, and probably NSFW.
