This sensational, extremely influential, 1974 low-budget horror movie directed by Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist, Lifeforce, Salem's Lot), may be notorious for its title, but it's also a damn fine piece of moviemaking. And it's blood-curdling scary, too. Loosely based on the true crimes of Ed Gein (also a partial inspiration for Psycho), the original Jeffrey Dahmer, Texas Chainsaw Massacre follows a group of teenagers who pick up a hitchhiker and wind up in a backwoods horror chamber where they're held captive, tortured, chopped up, and impaled on meat hooks by a demented cannibalistic family, including a character known as Leatherface who maniacally wields one helluva chainsaw. The movie's powerful sense of dread is heightened by its grainy, semi-documentary style--but it also has a wicked sense of humour (and not that camp, self-referential variety that became so tiresome in subsequent horror films of the 70s, 80s and 90s). OK, in case you couldn't tell, it's "not for everyone", but as a landmark in the development of the horror/slasher genre, it ranks with Psycho, Halloween, and A Nightmare on Elm Street. --Jim Emerson

Is it worth getting the blu-ray over the DVD? Isn't this film made to look poor quality?

DVD's will soon be old technology, plus at this price you won't be paying much more for the blu ray

Not really, DVD and Blu-Ray will co-exist for a while yet, despite the increase in quality with Blu.

Regarding the item in question, I would definitely go for the Blu-Ray version these days, as Kamen said, you wouldn't be paying much more, if anything, for the Blu-Ray version and it has all of the same extras as the three-disc Ultimate Edition (I think).

This edition has all the extras of the 3 disc DVD version but in HD and with lossless audio. The DVD is actually more expensive in most places because it is a 3 DVD set.

Regarding the transfer, the original negative was only shot on 16mm and is old and neglected but has been decently restored. You will see a lot of grain and things won't be sharp like on a modern film but the extra definition of a 1080 transfer will definately make the picture look better and as good as it can especially if you plan to watch on a large TV or projector.

I'm ordering largely for the great extras as the stories behind the making of this film are very interesting.

Voted hot. (but ordered from Play avec Quidco)

Just ordered on Play through Quidco, a classic film and a great price for a Blu Ray! The price all Blu Rays should be :)

It refers to the substantial extras content which is enough to fill a 3 DVDs.
