Arrow Video is buzzed to announce the 3-disc limited edition UK Blu-ray release of Tobe Hooper's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2. This 3-disc Blu-ray set will be available to own in the UK on 11th November 2013 and include re-mastered High Definition digital transfers of not one, but three Tobe Hooper movies

Alongside The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, the set will include both The Heisters (1965) and Eggshells (1970) which have now been fully restored. All three films will be included within the newly illustrated limited edition release which also includes a host of extra features.

In 1974, Tobe Hooper quite literally changed the face of horror with his landmark film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Although the hulking Leatherface and his trusty power tool left an indelible mark upon the cinematic landscape, it wouldn't be until 1986 that the buzz came back... in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2!

Relocating the cannibalistic Sawyer clan to a cavernous, labyrinthine dwelling beneath an amusement park, Hooper's deliciously demented sequel sees Leatherface and Co. continue their murderous exploits afresh. This time around, local DJ Stretch runs afoul of the Sawyers when she gets mixed up in the brutal slaying of two youngsters. Meanwhile Lieutenant 'Lefty' Enright is hell-bent on avenging the murder of his nephew Franklin who perished in the original massacre.

A cult classic in its own right, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 serves up a heady blend of gratuitous gore, socio-political critique and jet-black humour - whilst Dennis Hopper's unhinged turn as Lefty needs to be seen to be believed! Whichever way you skin it, Leatherface's second cinematic outing is an uncompromisingly delirious vision from one of the masters of horror.
