The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews: The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 1974

In 1974, horror cinema changed forever when The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was unleashed on frightened movie-goers nationwide and now that same film, which was once deemed taboo and even banned in multiple countries, has gone on to be lovingly embraced by classic horror fans worldwide.  To celebrate the 40th anniversary of this genre essential, The DVD Shelf Movie Reviews will dig deep under the skin and see why this film still packs a punch after four decades and countless imitators.  You’ll get the terrifying inside story behind the real events that inspired the film, the landscape of the horror genre at the time, and an in-depth look behind-the-scenes of this low-budget shocker.  Then, if that wasn’t enough, we’ll look at the 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition Blu-ray set and even, for better or worse, a brief rundown of the rest of the Texas Chainsaw film franchise.  So, turn down the lights and rev up your chainsaws – it’s going to be quite a trip!
