This is a big year for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre with it being the 40th anniversary and all. I’m curious as to what they’ll do 10 years from now for the 50th anniversary? The film is going to look the best it has ever looked, thanks to the 4k restoration.
That print is now making its way to DVD and Blu-ray, courtesy of Dark Sky Films, on September 16th. In addition to the usual special edition releases on the two formats, a special Limited Deluxe “Black Maria” Collector’s Edition is going to be made available. That’s what you’re looking at above.
This release marks the only transfer of the film to go back to the original 16mm A/B rolls, the actual film that rolled through the cameras. The Limited Deluxe “Black Maria” Edition of THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE will be released at retail in October but will be available exclusively at www.gorgon-video.com for 30 days starting September 16, 2014.
This four-disc DVD/Blu-ray combo pack will include a wealth of extras, including:
- A Leatherface apron Theatrical mini-poster Five audio options
- Four feature commentaries with the filmmakers and cast
- Several making-of featurettes Deleted scenes, outtakes, bloopers, trailers and much more
Are you going to pony up the bread for this edition?
