Watch 'The Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Like You’ve Never Seen It Before

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.
