A new take on the classic horror franchise comes to Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D in April.
In an early announcement to retailers, Lionsgate says 'Texas Chainsaw - 3D' is coming to Blu-ray on April 30.
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 named 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 soon learns that wealth comes at a price when she discovers the horror that waits in the cellar of her new mansion.
