The Collector's Edition updates continue to come from Scream Factory, as they have now revealed the new cover art and release date for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 Collector's Edition Blu-ray.

Scream Factory has marked April 19th as the release date for their special Blu-ray release of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. The Blu-ray will include yet-to-be-revealed special features and come adorned with new cover art by Joel Robinson. For more information, we have Scream Factory's official announcement below, as well as a look at the Blu-ray's cover art.

Earlier today, Scream Factory revealed the new artwork and release dates for their respective Collector's Edition Blu-rays of Wes Craven's The Serpent and the Rainbow (due out on February 23rd) and John Carpenter's Village of the Damned (hitting shelves April 12th). Stay tuned to Daily Dead for updates on all three home media releases.

From Scream Factory: "Hot on the heels of our recent updates for Wes Craven and John Carpenter films we bring you news on another legendary horror Director: Tobe Hooper. His wild, gory and truly off-the-wall sequel THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 2 will be landing on a 2-Disc Blu-ray “Collector’s Edition” on April 19th. New extras are still in progress and will be announced in full at a later date.

With this official street date also comes the reveal of our newly-designed key art which was illustrated by the very talented Joel Robinson (Nightbreed, The Serpent and the Rainbow, Ginger Snaps). If you order directly through at’ll also receive this on a FREE limited-edition 18” x 24” poster with purchase and while supplies last.

Purists of all things retro take note: The original theatrical key art - the classic “Breakfast Club” poster art - will be on the reverse wrap of the packaging.)"
