Nothing screams Happy Holidays like a kid in a cows head and the roar of a chainsaw and with that in mind – Lionsgate has announced the upcoming release of Leatherface on Blu-ray just in time to put it under the tree.
A press release showed up with all the gory details and you just know – I have to pass all the blood stained goodness on to you.
“The origins of the infamous *Texas Chain Saw Massacre* are finally revealed when *Leatherface *arrives on Blu-rayâ„¢ (plus Digital), DVD and Digital December 19 from Lionsgate. The film is currently available On Demand.

In case you haven’t heard – here’s the tale you’ll gooing to be told:
In Texas, years before the events of the *Texas Chain Saw Massacre*, in the early days of the infamous Sawyer family, the youngest child is sentenced to a mental hospital after a suspicious incident leaves the sheriff’s daughter dead. Ten years later, he kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with three other inmates. Pursued by authorities, including the deranged sheriff out to avenge his daughter’s death, the Sawyer teen goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster now known as Leatherface.
