Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we get a glimpse at a new poster to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. And it’s good news if you’re a fan of armadillos!
A new remastered version of the iconic horror film will make it’s debut at the SXSW festival this Monday. But let’s talk about this poster for a minute. Some might complain that it’s light on chainsaws, but I personally love it though. It’s got the infamous van with the creepy hitchhiker blood smeared all over it. And the colors really pop, which is always better than the alternative of the colors not popping.
The poster does bring to light an unfortunate realization that we must all come to terms with though: The senseless killing of armadillos. These strange creatures deserve better than to be left on the side of the road on their backs. It really can just start with one kind gesture to your fellow armadillo the next time you see him (or her) while you’re wandering in a waterless desert. You will be rewarded with good karma. Ok, now let’s see a pic of the crazy hitchhiker who smeared his blood all over the side of the van!
