Texas Chainsaw DVD/Blu-ray release date, special features announced

Feb. 27, 2013by: Eric Walkuski

The "pulse-pounding" and "frightening" (Lionsgate's words, not mine) horror film, TEXAS CHAINSAW, arrives on 3D/2D Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), DVD, Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View on MAY 14th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. If you truly can't wait that long, it will also become available via Digital Download on April 30th.

While it's tough to get too excited for the movie, the DVD/Blu-ray will come absolutely packed with extras, which is a pleasant surprise. Read the full list below:

- Audio commentary with producer Carl Mazzocone and filmmaker Tobe Hooper
- Special "Chainsaw Alumni" audio commentary with stars Bill Moseley, Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns and John Dugan
- "Texas Chainsaw Legacy" featurette - A look back at the history and 40 year legacy of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series with filmmaker Tobe Hooper
- "Resurrecting The Saw" featurette - A look at the development of Texas Chainsaw with Director John Luessenhop, Producer Carl Mazzocone and Writers Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan, Kirsten Elms and Stephen Susco
- "The Old Homestead" featurette - A detailed look at the re-creation of the shooting location from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre with Production Designer William A. Elliott and cast members (and Chainsaw series alumni) Bill Moseley, Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns and John Dugan

Leatherface In Action
Hot Times In Louisiana
Bloody Good Times

Not too bad at all, I'd say. I presume Lionsgate knows you likely won't buy the Blu-ray just for the movie, so why not treat fans to a glut of supplements?

Texas Chainsaw continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic left off. In Newt, Texas, people have been going missing without a trace for decades. Years later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young girl, Heather (Daddario), discovers that she has inherited a sprawling Texas estate from an unknown grandmother. To claim her estate, Heather goes on a road trip with her friends to Newt, but learns that wealth comes at a price when she discovers the horror that waits in the cellar of her new mansion.

Definitely a love it or hate it movie...personally I loved it and can't wait to bring it home. Those bonus features sound amazing, especially the commentary with Dugan, Moseley, Hansen and Marilyn Burns. The one with Tobe Hooper should be interesting as well.
