Already got this one (which is an AWESOME edition), so I think I'll pass.

The new 2 disc Dark Sky Films release is the best version Ive seen so far. Its got tons of extra features. I actually received a screener copy last Friday. I’m still watching the documentaries on the 2nd disc. Last night I watched the film with the 2nd audio commentary with Marilyn Burns (sally), Paul Partain (Franklin), Allen Danziger (Jerry) and Robert A Burns. One of my all time favorite films!!

I’m really surprised that there hasn’t been a newly-made “Legacy” documentary about this movie. You know, The ones that have interviews with different filmmakers,actors,writers and so forth, who were inspired by the particular movie. TCM '74 really needs one.

MGM is finaly making a special edition of TCM 2,this edition will have deleted scenes,a documentary wich I heard was going to be about 90 minutes long and alot more things.I dont know but I think it will be a double disc!

Yeah I heard about this dvd a couple of days ago.

i got this 2 disc a while back, its very good a lot of detailed extras, so i dont see the point of getting any other new special edition ones

i have the 1970’s texas chainsaw dvd. i baught it for about 4 euroes-its nothing special, but i can understand why someon would be crazy to buy it.
