Texas Chainsaw 3D - Blu-ray Release Date
By James Whittington, Wednesday 24th April 2013

Texas Chainsaw coverFear has many faces…

Lionsgate's Texas Chainsaw 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible. Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family - or so they thought.

Years later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars…

Texas Chainsaw 3D stars Alexandra Daddario, Dan Yeager and Tremaine 'Trey Songz' Neverson, along with special appearances from four beloved cast members from previous installments of the franchise with Gunnar Hansen (the original Leatherface) making an appearance alongside other faces from the original movie.

Available in 3D and 2D formats Texas Chainsaw 3D will be released on DVD, Blu-ray, 3D Blu-ray, and download to own and rent on 27th May thanks to Lionsgate.

Craven's Mind Ripper getting HD release from 88 Films
Posted on Monday 14th May 2018

Every horror fan that is worth a pint of blood knows very well that Wesley Earl Craven created one of the all-time greatest fright films in 1977's timeless terror-piece The Hills Have Eyes.

Following up his trendsetting The Last House On The Left (1972), Craven crafted a chiller that is largely seen as a gore game-changer - channelling cannibalism, family conflict and bone-crunching jump-scares. However what few viewers know is that, after the official sequel The Hills Have Eyes Part 2 in 1985, Craven himself would begin badgering away at an attempt to continue his classic desert-set mythology and expand its already fantastical scope into an even more supernatural-themed direction... The result wa...
