Leatherface and his cannibal clan are currently on the road and appearing at select theaters courtesy of MPI/Dark Sky Films, as a new 4k transfer of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chain Saw Massacre has been unveiled to celebrate the film's 40th anniversary. The sweltering summer horror classic is coming to Blu-ray and DVD this September, and the cover art and special features have now been revealed.

The 40th anniversary version of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre will come out in a Blu-ray/DVD combo and a sole Blu-ray release on September 16th.

“A tale of five 20-somethings whose free-spirited road trip becomes a terrifying descent into madness. When they find themselves isolated in a rural Texas community, they fall into the clutches of a monstrous clan of Texas cannibals and find themselves being whittled away by the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface.”
