Hello, this is Dom…

For the upcoming release of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre on 10th April, here’s what Second Sight Films had to say:

The Texas Chain Saw Massacre not only changed the face of horror, it remains one of the most disturbing, powerful and terrifying films ever made. Now – almost half a century after its original release – you can witness the terror as never seen before, as Second Sight Films presents the definitive version of Tobe Hooper’s legendary horror classic.

The highly anticipated Limited Edition 4K UHD/Blu-ray Box set comes complete with three discs: one UHD and two Blu-rays and in a brand-new presentation featuring additional restoration work. The UHD is presented in Dolby Vision HDR produced by Second Sight Films. Presented in a rigid box featuring stunning artwork, the release comes complete with a slew of special features and a 190-page hardback book. It arrives on 10 April 2023 and will also be available on Standard Edition 4K UHD and Standard Edition Blu-ray.

The film that redefined horror, tells the story of a group of five friends who take a road trip and find themselves at the mercy of a depraved Texan clan, among them one of the all-time horror icons, the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface – played by the inimitable Gunnar Hansen. It’s not long before their idyllic drive becomes a macabre nightmare… 

On its 1974 release, the film shocked audiences to their core, caused outrage and was widely banned for many years. To this day, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre has the power to strike fear into its victims, both old and new.
