THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 40TH ANNIVERSARY EDITON is coming soon!!


 When anyone asks me what my favorite horror film of all time is, I usually hesitate for a bit.  It's so hard to choose between all my favorites, but it never fails after a minute or so I come up with the same answer, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE.   I think I am about to love this movie more than ever with this new 40th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray from Dark Sky Films! 

  There are 4 versions of the film coming out, with the best being a rare collectors edition Black Mara Box Set.  Here is some info about these upcoming releases from the press release:


 THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE appears in an all-new 4K digital transfer and with a newly created 7.1 surround sound mix supervised by director Hooper (Poltergeist). This release marks the only transfer of the film to go back to the original 16mm A/B rolls, the actual film that rolled through the cameras. The Limited Deluxe "Black Maria" Edition of THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE will be released at retail in October but will be available exclusively at www.gorgon-video.com for 30 days starting September 16, 2014. Fans of the film will recognize the unique packaging as a replica of the iconic 'Black Maria' cattle truck that comes to Sally Hardesty's rescue when she's being pursued by Leatherface, a fitting nod to the legions of TCSM enthusiasts who were instrumental in keeping the film at the forefront of the genre throughout for the past 40 years and a true collectible display piece.'
