A new featurette takes a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre video game
Tea 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 perfect date, since director Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (watch it HERE) was set on August 18, 1973. With the release date just four months away, a featurette has arrived online to give us a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the game. 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. Although Whalen is doing the mo-cap for the Hitch-hiker, Edwin Neal, who played the character in the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, is providing his voice for the game. It has been said that Damian Maffei (The Strangers: Prey at Night) is also in the game’s cast. You can find out more about the killer characters at THIS LINK and the victim characters HERE.
