Texas chain saw 4k 40th anniversary screening

Tobe Hooper has supervised a 4K transfer with 7.1 sound for the SXSW 40th Anniversary screening of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre!

I'm not sure if this was the same transfer used as a jumping off point as Luessenhop did for the opening of Texas Chainsaw 3D, but this summer is going to see a re-release of Chain Saw in cinema's, using the new transfer!

Fingers crossed for a new Blu Ray this October....

I hate to use this thread as a soap box for another film but, couldn't Dawn of the Dead have received the same type of restoration as opposed to a needless 3D conversion of the same old washed out print? Getting back on topic, while I like TCM, I'm content with my Dark Sky blu-ray.

One of my all-time favorites. However, I also don't see how they can beat that release. It looked amazing (but not too amazing) and the supplements were plentiful. What else could they have?

If it's a wide theatrical re-release, I'd say that's a big deal. Home video is getting to be the point of diminishing returns, but if they can get a 50ft viewing that's on par with original 35mm prints (right now, 1080 Blus do NOT look that good on a big screen), then we might have something to be excited about.

Would love to see this on the big screen.
The Dark Sky disc sadly had some DNR applied on the transfer, which robbed it of some fine-details. Thankfully the euro discs don't suffer from any noise reduction, and looks sharper. I wonder how much better this new transfer might look
The footage from the original, that was used in the beginning of the new Chainsaw movie, looked great on the big screen. I wonder if that came from the new 4K scan?

This is one of those few horror movies that I never get tired of.
And, yup, I'll probably upgrade again, if the new transfer gets a BD release

I have to see this movie in the theaters!
and obviously we'll be seeing another DVD/BD release by the end of the summer i'm sure. A new 40th anniversary retrospective documentary to go with it probably

I saw the digitally restored CLEOPATRA last May and it looked fantastic on the big screen.Honestly,it looked like a new film print,would have never suspected it was digital.I've seen Blu Rays and DVDs in the theater before,this did NOT look like that.

I have yet to upgrade this and am still rocking the Pioneer DVD, so in my mind Ive already pre-ordered the 40th anniversary BD.

Texas Chain Saw was the first DVD I brought (the Pioneer Ed). The first BD I brought was the Dark Sky version.

I recently went back to look at the DVD, just for old times. Compared to the current BD, the DVD looks atrocious lol. Can't wait for the 40th Ann version :vD

I'm with the others on this one. Don't know if I'd buy a new disc but I definitely want to see this in the theater. I'm probably most excited to hear the new sound mix. Hooper really did some amazing work there and I'd love to hear that in a theater.

I've bought every single release of this on home video and I have no intentions of stopping now. Can't wait to check this out.
