The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Collector's Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo and Single DVD and Blu-ray Also Available on September 16th

Posted by joecooler2u on Thursday, August 7th 2014

 

("THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE 40th ANNIVERSARY BLACK MARIA LIMITED EDITION" ART IS PICTURES ABOVE)
Dark Sky Films Brings The Texas Chain Saw Massacre: 40th Anniversary Black Maria Limited Edition
Exclusively Available Through Gorgon-Video.com Starting September 16th Collector's Edition Blu-ray/DVD Combo and Single DVD and Blu-ray Also Available on September 16th
(see below for artwork)
It's been imitated and remade, but never equaled. Tobe Hooper's THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE rose from a notorious 1974 sleeper sensation to rank as one of the greatest horror films ever made. Now, to mark the film's 40th anniversary, Dark Sky Films is presenting the digitally re-mastered masterpiece on Blu-ray for the first time in a stunning Limited Deluxe "Black Maria" Collector's Edition box set.
THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE appears in an all-new 4K digital transfer and with a newly created 7.1 surround sound mix supervised by director Hooper (Poltergeist). 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. Fans of the film will recognize the unique packaging as a replica of the iconic 'Black Maria' cattle truck that comes to Sally Hardesty's rescue when she's being pursued by Leatherface, a fitting nod to the legions of TCSM enthusiasts who were instrumental in keeping the film at the forefront of the genre throughout for the past 40 years and a true collectible display piece.'
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
THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE received a mixed critical reception upon its initial release - the Los Angeles Times called it "despicable" - but horror fans immediately recognized it has a breakthrough in unbearable suspense. The story, written by director Tobe Hooper and Kim Henkel, is dreadfully simple: Five young people on a weekend getaway in remote Texas countryside fall prey to a chain saw-wielding butcher (dubbed Leatherface because of his mask made of human skin) and his demented cannibalistic family. Thanks to startling scenes such as a woman being impaled on a meat hook, horror cinema would never be the same. Violent, confrontational and shockingly realistic, the film terrified audiences and was the most buzzed-about release of its time (a buzz fueled by the marketing campaign that claimed it was based on a true story).
Thrust upon an America disillusioned by the Vietnam War and Watergate, the 1974 shocker faced a storm of controversy, censorship and outcry. But this masterpiece of horror has stood the test of time to become a landmark motion picture and cultural milestone, having opened the (sliding steel) door to the entire slasher genre of the 1980s and beyond.
In addition to the Limited Deluxe "Black Maria" Edition of THE TEXAS CHAIN SAW MASSACRE , the film will also be released as a standard DVD, Blu-ray and DVD/Blu-ray Combo on September 16 at retail outlets nationwide.

35 IS THE NEW 40 WHEN HALLOWEEN 35TH ANNIVERSARY WINS AT 40TH ANNUAL SATURN AWARDS Seminal Horror Classic Nabs “Best DVD/BD Classic Film Release” From Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films


BEVERLY HILLS, CA – Halloween, the 1978 John Carpenter terror classic that transformed the modern horror film, received yet another validation of its legendary status when the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films awarded Anchor Bay Entertainment’s Halloween 35th Anniversary Blu-ray™ the Saturn Award for “Best DVD/BD Classic Film Release” at tonight’s ceremony. The event, marking the 40th anniversary of the Saturn Awards, was held at the Castaway in Burbank, California. Dean Cundey, the cinematographer (who supervised the new HD transfer for the Blu-ray™) and Malek Akkad, son of the original film’s producer Moustapha Akkad, accepted the honor from presenters Eric Balfour and Joanna Cassidy (who worked with Cundey on Who Framed Roger Rabbit).

"This award is really a testament to the talents of John Carpenter and the original artists that made a film that is still so compelling 35 years after it's release," said Trancas International Films' President Malek Akkad.   "We worked hard with our partners at Anchor Bay to make this a special release, and we thank the Academy for their recognition."

"Halloween is one of my proudest accomplishments, not only because it was early in my career, but it's especially rewarding to know that audiences continue to appreciate it,” said Cundey. “Receiving this Saturn Award thirty five years later is a wonderful reminder of the film’s social and historical significance.”

“Anchor Bay has proudly featured the original Halloween in our library for almost 20 years,” noted Bill Clark, President of Anchor Bay Entertainment. “We thank the Academy for validating all our hard work here to create a definitive Blu-ray release of one of the greatest horror films ever made.”

For last year’s 35th Anniversary of Halloween,  Anchor Bay Entertainment and Trancas International partnered on the Halloween 35th Anniversary Blu-ray™. For this very special release, an all-new HD transfer was created, personally supervised by the film’s original cinematographer, Academy-Award® nominee Dean Cundey (Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Apollo 13, the Back to the Future trilogy), as well as a new 7.1 audio mix, a brand-new feature length audio commentary by writer/director John Carpenter and star Jamie Lee Curtis, an all-new bonus feature with Ms. Curtis, and selected legacy bonus features from previous ABE releases.

Halloween 35th AnniversaryTouchback bested truly stellar competition in the category, including  Fantastic Voyage, The Haunting, House of Wax, Nosferatu, and The Wicker Man. The Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films was founded in 1972 by Dr. Donald A. Reed to recognize and honor excellence among filmmakers in the science fiction, fantasy, horror and action/adventure/thriller genres.
