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.
