Chainsaws have never sounded so terrifying! Turbine Media Group is releasing Tobe Hooper’s classic, groundbreaking horror flick, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, in 13.1 Auro-3D audio, which adds a height-layer to the sound mix. It’ll be combined with 4K UHD Blu-ray to give a whole new dimension to terror. (Just think what that endlessly droning generator will sound like!)
Remixed specifically for home theaters, the Auro-3D mix “creates an exciting three-dimensional soundscape thanks to the addition of a Height layer in front, above and all around the listener,” creating three-dimensional sound.
The controversial 1974 masterpiece is an iconic part of film history, having originated many of the tropes used in slashers from HALLOWEEN to SCREAM. It’s so influential that when we celebrated Women in Horror Month this past February with a poll asking our readers to choose the best Final Girl in horror history, you all chose Marilyn Burns, who played the hapless Sally in TCM over legends like Jamie Lee Curtis and Sigourney Weaver. It’s especially momentous because Burns starred in only ONE film, while some of the others have starred in several, and sometimes even more than one franchise. There’s just no underestimating the effect and influence of this film.
