MPI Media Group/Dark Sky Films will release on Blu-ray director Tobe Hooper's classic horror film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), starring Marilyn Burns, Edwin Neal, and Allen Danziger. Recently restored in 4K, the film will be available for purchase on September 16th.
Technical specs and supplemental features to be included on this upcoming release have not yet been revealed.
The new 4K restoration of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre was done at NOLO Digital Film in Chicago and was overseen by Todd Wieneke of Dark Sky Films.
Synopsis: A tale of five 20-somethings whose free-spirited road trip becomes a terrifying descent into madness. When they find themselves isolated in a rural Texas community, they fall into the clutches of a monstrous clan of Texas cannibals and find themselves being whittled away by the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface.
I'm hoping this 40th anniversary and the film screenings will generate solid buzz for younger audiences to discover this film in all of its glory and get a taste of true horror cinema. Day 1 purchase for this guy right here!!!!
Okay so WTF, a mere 2 hours after this was posted and a pre-order went up for the bluray and now there's a second pre-order for a 2-disc edition lol. Can't it ever be simple. Oh well guess to be safe I'll have to go ahead and pre-order both until more info is released regarding the differences between the two editions.
" I can't wait to purchase this, especially since I held off on the currently available BD."
Strange it being your second favorite horror flick and you haven't purchased it on Blu-ray as of yet? Wow, you better pass on this new edition and hold off for the 8K scan out in 5 years for the 45th anniversary.
i own the current blu ray and it's top notch,nothing wrong with it PQ or AQ.
Might buy it when 4K becomes a fact for blu players and projectors,and the way the industry is moving now that might take years.
