'Texas Chainsaw 3D' Blu-ray and DVD details

The latest Texas Chainsaw movie, Texas Chainsaw 3D, will be carving its way on to Blu-ray, DVD and VOD on May 14th from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. It is also debuting on Digital a little earlier, on April 30th. The Blu-ray will feature both the 3D and 2D versions of the film, with both Blu-ray and DVD releases coming complete with Digital copies. The release will also come with a ton of special features (full list below), which includes an audio commentary from Bill Moseley, Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns and John Dugan, and another one featuring Tobe Hooper.

Texas Chainsaw continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic left off.  In Newt, Texas, people have been going missing without a trace for decades.  Years later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young girl, Heather (Daddario), discovers that she has inherited a sprawling Texas estate from an unknown grandmother.  To claim her estate, Heather goes on a road trip with her friends to Newt, but learns that wealth comes at a price when she discovers the horror that waits in the cellar of her new mansion.
The Blu-ray and DVD features extensive bonus materials including audio commentaries, a look back at the history of the Texas Chainsaw series, exclusive interviews with the film's director, producer and writers plus multiple behind-the-scenes featurettes.
