I never could buy the Dark Sky Region 1 "Ultimate Edition," so this is a definite buy for me. ;)

How can it be High Definition when it shows a DVD logo? This would have to be on Blu Ray, if it's High Def. Maybe this isn't the final box art...

I don't think it's genuinely High-Def (it's only a DVD), but it's been extensively restored and remastered, and it's the best the film has ever looked.

Noodleboy - I personally don't find it the least bit scary either, but then again, I don't really find any film scary (except maybe The Exorcist - those subliminal flashes make me jump!) However, I think The Texas Chain Saw Massacre has a quality that's difficult to find in horror. It's exhausting, although in a good way. The film is so fast-paced and relentless, and the last half hour so intense that when it's ended, you're left feeling numb and breathless. And I love it. :tmb:
