New York, NY -- On October 17th, following the phenomenally successful late summer blockbuster, Freddy Vs. Jason –- and just in time for Halloween -- New Line Cinema, in association with Michael Bay and Radar Pictures (a Platinum Dunes/Next Entertainment Production), proudly presents the return of cult classic horror at its finest in the remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a terrifying journey into a heart of unimaginable darkness.

This cinematic ingenious which spawned a generation of thrillers over the last three decades remains the blueprint for writers, directors and producers of dark fantasy film of today. Like peanut butter is to jelly as chainsaws are to leather masks, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre – The Album is the perfect accompaniment for the return of Leatherface’s full-fledged massacre and these hand-picked tracks exemplify the culmination of Metal and Horror.

The film is based on true life events that inspired the 1974 original horror film phenomenon of the same name while this modern remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre centers around a group of five friends whose free-spirited road trip becomes a terrifying descent into madness when they find themselves isolated in a rural Texas community, fighting for their lives against a chainsaw-wielding madman, “Leatherface” and his bizarre clan. The film's ensemble of rising young stars includes Jessica Biel (Seventh Heaven), Eric Balfour (Six Feet Under), Erica Leerhsen (Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2), Jonathan Tucker (The Virgin Suicides) Mike Vogel (The Grind) and screen veteran R. Lee Ermey (Willard, Full Metal Jacket) in the pivotal role of Sheriff Hoyt. The screenplay by Scott Kosar is based on the original film’s screenplay by Kim Henkel and Tobe Hooper. Marcus Nispel, who has won almost every award within the advertising and music industry while directing over a thousand commercials and music videos, makes his feature film directorial debut in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Expected to gross $20 - 30 million in box office revenue during its first week of release, New Line Cinema is spending over $20 million in advance promotional efforts for this film.

In the film’s atmosphere of sheer bone-chilling terror and claustrophobic anxiety, songs by the legendary multi platinum-selling artist, Pantera, the platinum-selling Seether, Nu Metal visionaries Static-X, Black Metal stalwarts Morbid Angel and buzz-worthy trailblazers like Lamb Of God forward the action and enhance the relentless sense of foreboding in ways dialogue alone simply cannot. Horns up, metal heads!

Track Listing for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Soundtrack is as follows:

1. Pantera, “Immortally Insane” (New Remix Not Available In US)
2. Hatebreed “Below The Bottom”
3. Soil, “Pride” (New Track)
4. Static-X, “Deliver Me” (New Track to Be Used As a Future B-Side)
5. Mushroomhead, “43”
6. Seether, “Pig”
7. Nothingface, “Down In Flames” (Previously Unavailable)
8. 40 Below Summer, “Self Medicate”
9. Motograter, “Suffocate”
10. Shadows Fall, “Destroyer Of Senses”
11. Meshuggah, “Rational Gaze”
12. Fear Factory, “Archetype” (Remixed For This Record)
13. Morbid Angel, “Enshrined By Grace”
14. Index Case, “Listen”
15. Finger Eleven, “Stay In Shadow”
16. Lamb Of God, “Ruin”
17. Sworn Enemy, “As Real As It Gets”
18. Core-Tez, “5 Months”

The soundtrack’s juggernaut of modern metal luminaries may intimidate some. If your thing is emo-core, wimp rock or false punk, perhaps this collection is not for your delicate sensibilities. You have been warned.

The original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has achieved staggering success since it first shocked and stunned audiences in 1974 with its stark realism. The horrifying story, drawn from a series of true events, is considered by many to be one of the greatest thrillers of all time and a landmark of terror that has influenced countless films in its wake. It has grossed more than $100 Million worldwide and established itself as a cult classic to legions of fans. The film has entered into the iconography of popular culture by way of its menacing evil character, “Leatherface.” The character remains one of the most recognizable classic villains, while the film has become the benchmark of terror by which modern films are measured.

Legend has it that in August of 1973, police were dispatched to the remote farmhouse of Thomas Hewitt, the former head-skinner at a local slaughterhouse in Travis County, Texas. What they found within the confines of the cryptic residence was the butchered remains of 33 human victims, a chilling discovery that shocked and horrified a nation in what many still refer to as the most notorious mass murder case of all time. Wearing the grotesque flesh masks of his victims and brandishing a chainsaw, the killer, known as “Leatherface,” would gain infamy when sensational headlines were splashed across newspapers throughout the state of Texas: “House of Terror Stuns Nation – Massacre in Texas.”
