The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre features a gritty and grimy 1080p transfer that suits the film's natural visual structure nicely enough. The image is certainly a bit soft and a hair smeary in spots. It understandably and expectedly lacks the pristine clarity of bigger-budgeted and newer movies appearing in high definition. This transfer retains the picture's unique visual character, which should be its number one priority. Detail is fair. Clothing and facial textures are moderately complex, but the image truly shines in the worn down farmhouse where chipped paint, warped wood, numerous bones, and other oddities greatly benefit from the stability and enhanced resolution of the Blu-ray format. Colors are a little dull, but steady. The green van, clothing, and the house's white and wooden accents appear stable but far from vibrant. Black levels are a touch murky and occasionally prone to crush, but they do remain deep rather than going gray. Grain retention is admirable, though some backgrounds look blocky rather than grainy. Dirt and scratches are minimal. This will never be an eye candy sort of film, save for in the eyes of those audiences who like a worn down, grainy film appearance. The transfer could stand a little bit of improvement, but all things considered it's more than a fair Blu-ray image.


The Texas Chain Saw Massacre Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre carves up home theater systems with a DTS 5.1 soundtrack. No surprise, there's little presence or body to what is a fairly reserved presentation of a classic, low-budget film. The spread to 5.1 channels does little for the overall tenor of the presentation. Surrounds are rarely engaged, let alone actively so, and the bulk of the presentation is handled by the center channel. Still, there are some good moments here. The flashbulb sounds at film's start are crisp and nicely defined, creating chilling sense of the macabre and frightening things to come. The radio news broadcast plays low but with strong clarity as it describes nothing but desecration, destruction, and death, truly setting the tone for the rest of the movie. Many shots in the first act within the rickety old van don't do much in terms of creating a true, rattly atmosphere. Even external ambience remains mostly limited to the front. Switching to the included and "resorted" monaural soundtrack does show that the 5.1 mix offers a sound that's a bit more full, but not worlds more effective. The mono presentation handles heavier elements like a whirring generator with vigor. The end screams and sounds of terror pierce the stage even through the minimalistic presentation. Dialogue is steady and suitably crisp in all cases. This is no sort of amazing soundtrack, but the presentation -- no matter the menu selection -- will carry listeners through the movie with ease.
