A new featurette takes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game from Gun Interactive and Sumo Nottingham is set to be released for PC, PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox One on August 18th. The date is perfect, as Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre was set on August 18th 1973. A featurette, entitled “Making a Massacre”, has been posted online in anticipation of the game’s release date. You can watch that featurette, appropriately titled “Making a Massacre”, at the bottom of this article.
Matches of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game will pit 4 victim characters against 3 killer characters. The story of the game has the following set-up: When Maria Flores went missing, and local law enforcement seemed to stall out in their search, her younger sister Ana teamed up with some of Maria’s friends from college to pick up the trail. The game takes place before the events of the original film.
The mo-cap performers included genre icon Kane Hodder (who did stunt work on Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III) as Leatherface, Sean Whalen (The People Under the Stairs) as The Hitch-hiker; Troy Burgess (Swedish Dicks) as The Cook; Kristina Klebe (Don’t Kill It) as new killer character Sissy; Dove Meir (Dig) as new killer character Johnny; Scout Taylor-Compton (Rob Zombie’s Halloween), doing the mo-cap for all of the female victim characters; and Hunter C. Smith (Lucky), doing the mo-cap for all of the male victim characters. The game’s voice is provided by Edwin Neal who played the Hitch-hiker in the original Texas chainsaw Massacre. It has been said that Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night) is also in the game’s cast. You can learn more about the killers and victims at THIS LINK.
