Specialty label Dark Sky Films has sent us early details for a new two-disc edition of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Vowing to trump all other previous releases of the 1974 horror classic, the new set will boast an anamorphic widescreen transfer (from a new high-definition transfer of the 16mm camera negative), along with new Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 stereo mixes and the original mono track.
Bonus materials will include a new commentary track with stars Marilyn Burns, Alan Danziger, Paul A. Partain and Production Designer Robert A. Burns, a second track with Tobe Hooper, Director of Photography Daniel Pearl and Gunnar Hansen (ported over from Pioneer’s release), deleted & alternate footage, trailers, TV spots, radio spots and still galleries.
Making its Stateside debut on disc two is David Gregory’s 2000 documentary Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Shocking Truth, featuring interviews with the directors of all four films in the series. Also included on this second disc will be a new documentary produced by Red Shirt Pictures, featuring new interviews with various cast & crew members, footage from all the major locations used in the first film and tons of other goodies. Look for this new “Chainsaw” to be released in September.
WTF? How many versions are these cocksuckers gonna release? I’m content with my Uncut R2 Special Edition, so Red Shirt Pictures can shove their new release up their ass. Besides I can’t see any TCM documentary to be better than “The Shocking Truth” one.
