Texas Chainsaw Massacre Ultimate Edition DVDGoon
This past week has been a great time for DVD fanatics with several horror titles being released. Now my personal favorite film, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, is getting an Ultimate Edition treatment. It won't have quite as much as the Dawn of the Dead Ultimate Edition but this set sounds pretty impressive for fans like me.
The 2 disc set includes an anamorphic widescreen transfer with new Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 stereo mixes and the original mono track. Now all the extra goodies will include a new commentary track with Marilyn Burns, Alan Danziger, Paul A. Partain, and Robert A. Burns. A second track will feature Tobe Hooper, Daniel Pearl, and Gunnar Hansen. We will also get the standard deleted and alternate scenes, trailers, TV spots, radio spots, and still galleries.
Finally the U.S. will be getting David Gregorys 2000 documentary "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Shocking Truth" on disc two. It will also come with some outakes from the documentary along with a "Flesh Wounds" featurette that will include new interviews, a tour of the Chainsaw House with Gunnar Hansen and other "goodies".
This sounds like every Texas Chainsaw Massacre fans wet dream. I'm usually very against double dipping but this looks to be the definitive DVD for TCM. So save up some pennies because this one will set you back around $29.99. Expect it to hit shelves on September 26th.
