‘Driver’s’ Refn Hosts Restored ‘Texas Chain Saw Massacre’ Screening (Video)

About a month ago it was revealed that Drive director Nicolas Winding Refn is a huge horror fan.

While at one point he was helping out on the Maniac Cop remake, he’s currently developing The Bringing, inspired by the widely circulated video of a young woman who displayed erratic behavior in an elevator at the Cecil Hotel in Los Angeles.

Colin Geddes, the man behind the Midnight Madness program at TIFF, was on hand for a screening of the newly restored 4K digital restoration of Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre in The Directors’ Fortnight (Quinzaine des Réalisateurs), a showcase of new directors, independent and avant-guard films presented outside competition and parallel to the main festival.

Showing his true love for the genre, Refn hosted said event, and Mr. Geddes was awesome enough to record it all! Watch as one of Hollywood’s biggest up-and-comers talks about the 1974 masterpiece that changes horror cinema forever.

    God what I would’ve given to have been there; “Drive” is one of my favorite movies of all time.

    I’d love to see what Refn could do with a major horror franchise remake/retelling.

    Not going to happen, but I can dream…
