Happy ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ Day: The Original Horror Classic Now Streaming on SCREAMBOX

The film which you are about to see is an account of the tragedy which befell a group of five youths, in particular Sally Hardesty and her invalid brother, Franklin.

It is all the more tragic in that they were young. But, had they lived very, very long lives, they could not have expected nor would they have wished to see as much of the mad and macabre as they were to see that day. For them an idyllic summer afternoon drive became a nightmare.

The events of that day were to lead to the discovery of one of the most bizarre crimes in the annals of American history, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre.

John Larroquette’s opening narration for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is forever embedded into the minds of horror fans the world over, kicking off Tobe Hooper’s horror classic on a pitch perfectly ominous note. The day that Sally Hardesty and her brother and friends were brutally slashed up by Leatherface and his twisted family? August 18, 1973.

Yes, today marks the 50 YEAR ANNIVERSARY of that fictional day of terror, one of the most harrowing days in the entire history of the horror genre. How are we celebrating, you ask? Well for starters we’re definitely going to be spending a good deal of time today playing The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: The Video Game, which was fittingly released today.

Brandon Trush raves in his 4-star review for Bloody Disgusting, “As I jumped into my initial matches, experimenting with both the victim team and the family team, it immediately became apparent to me not only how faithful that Gun had been to the source material, but how seamless the material seemed to matriculate into an asymmetrical horror setting.”

He continues, “The myriad of gameplay options offered by both teams keeps the gameplay fresh, and it’s further augmented by an intricate skill tree and progression system.”

“If you’re interested in the future of asymmetrical horror, picking The Texas Chain Saw Massacre up is a necessity,” Brandon adds.

How else can you celebrate? By watching the original 1974 horror classic that started it all, of course! And The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is NOW STREAMING on SCREAMBOX!

The Bloody Disgusting-powered, all-horror streaming service just added the original classic to its library this morning, and we invite you to relive the terror of Tobe Hooper’s masterpiece.

A whopping eight Chainsaw Massacre films have followed in the wake of the original, existing across various timelines and presenting various different incarnations of Leatherface and his cannibalistic family. And yet none have captured the raw power and true terror of Hooper’s vision, a sun-soaked nightmare that endures as one of the scariest movies of all time.
