Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D Cuts Into Blu-ray May 14th

I can’t speak for the movie itself as I have not seen it yet, but Lionsgate is doing it justice, IMO, by releasing both the 3D and standard versions in one Blu-ray package PLUS both the UV (who cares about that) and the DIgital Copy too!  Can I get a hallelujah?  Say what you want, the fanboys are still going to buy this one, but unfortunately we have to wait until May 14th to check this out on our format of choice.  Check out the full press release below from Lionsgate.  As of right now, there is no pre-order up yet, but don’t despair.  It’s coming!

The pulse-pounding horror film, Texas Chainsaw,arrives on 3D/2D Blu-ray Disc (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), DVD (plus Digital Copy and Ultraviolet), Video on Demand and Pay-Per-View on May 14from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. Texas Chainsaw will also be available for Digital Download on April 30, three weeks prior to the Blu-ray, DVD and Video on Demand release.

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.

 

The Blu-ray and DVD features extensive bonus materials including audio commentaries, a look back at the history of the Texas Chainsaw series, exclusive interviews with the film’s director, producer and writers plus multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes. Texas Chainsaw will be available on Blu-ray Disc and DVD for the suggested retail price of $39.99 and $29.95, respectively.
