The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 4K UHD release coming from Second Sight Films in April

Second Sight Films will be giving Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre a 4K release in April

A couple months ago, we heard that Dark Sky Films will be giving the 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (watch it HERE) a 4K UHD release in February – and you can find out all about that release at THIS LINK. Two months after Dark Sky Films brings The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to 4K, the UK-based company Second Sight Films will be putting out their own 4K release of the film. The street date for the Second Sight Films release is April 10th, and copies can be pre-ordered HERE!

Directed by Tobe Hooper from a script he wrote with Kim Henkel, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has the following synopsis: When Sally hears that her grandfather’s grave may have been vandalized, she and her paraplegic brother, Franklin, set out with their friends to investigate. After a detour to their family’s old farmhouse, they discover a group of crazed, murderous outcasts living next door. As the group is attacked one by one by the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface, who wears a mask of human skin, the survivors must do everything they can to escape.

The film stars Marilyn Burns, Paul A. Partain, Jim Siedow, Edwin Neal, William Vail, Teri McMinn, Allen Danziger, John Dugan, and Gunnar Hansen.
