Tobe Hooper’s classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre gets long-awaited Limited Edition on 4K UHD/Blu-ray + Standard Editions on 10 April 2023 ( @SecondSightFilm )

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 and has sat in my Top 10 horror film list since I first saw the film in 1999 when it was legally available in the UK. Now – almost half a century after its original release – the film is back in this wonderful limited edition from Second Sight Films as they present 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…
