The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Online. On Youtube.

I remember for years struggling to get a hold of a copy of this film to watch, even with the internet being in full swing. Back in the days before Universal re-released it and every Tom, Dick and Harry had their own special edition on the shelves of HMV, this was actually a hard film to get a hold of. I remember eyeing up an Australian import released on a porno label. That's just how it was.

Now, Tobe Hooper's horror classic is up on YouTube, in one easy to watch video, for all to see! The film didn't hit the spot with me the first time I watched it, but like several horror films that have become my favourites (The Shining, The Thing), it took time for me to realise just how much I adored them. 

Who knows how long this will be up on YouTube (I'm going to make an educated guess and say it's not a legal upload), but if you get the chance, this is where most modern day horror comes from.

Happy Sunday!
