40th Anniversary! New 4K Digital Restoration!

In 1974, writer-producer-director Tobe 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. To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this beloved horror classic, MPI Media Group presents the original film restored from an all-new 4k scan authorized by director Tobe Hooper and featuring a dynamic new 7.1 surround sound mix.

“The most purely horrifying horror movie ever made.” – Empire

“A backwoods masterpiece of fear and loathing.” – Houston Chronicle

“Whoever made this must have been a Mansonite crazoid.” – Wes Craven
