The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Finds Love in France May 18 2014 | POSTED BY Nicole Mikuzis
The spectacular 40th Anniversary 4K restoration of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre played to a packed house as part of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival Director’s fortnight program. Director Tobe Hooper was in attendance, and the film was enthusiastically introduced by director, Nic Winding Refn, who proclaimed, "I want to give the palm d'or to Tobe Hooper, because he should have gotten it 40 years ago. Oscars you buy. Palms you earn." Hooper was honored by long standing ovations both before and after the screening.
The film originally played in Cannes Director’s Fortnight back in 1974.Stay tuned for more information about the US theatrical re- release!
