The Black Maria Limited Edition box set of director Tobe Hooper’s horror classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre may not contain a kitchen sink—or, for that matter, an actual chainsaw—but this 40th anniversary four-disc DVD/Blu-ray combo pack has pretty much everything else a Leatherface lover could desire. The film itself is presented in new 4K digital transfer with a 7.1 surround sound mix supervised by Hooper itself.

“The film works as well, if not better, than it originally did,” the filmmaker told EW earlier this year. Bonus features include commentaries, making-of featurettes, and trailers while purchasers will also become the proud owner of a mini-poster and a Leatherface apron, with which you can amuse your friends (and worry your neighbors). Also, the actual box has been styled after the Black Maria which arrives at the end of the film.

But the most exciting extra may well be the array of previously unavailable outtakes which featuring the late Marilyn Burns and a very much chainsaw-wielding Gunnar Hansen.

Watch both actors in the exclusive, never-before-seen sequences from the box set below.

The Black Maria Limited Edition box set can be purchased from Gorgon Video. Don’t have the cash—or the shelf space—for that? The restored Texas Chain Saw Massacre is also being released in a 40th Anniversary Collector’s Edition DVD/Blu-ray set, and as a single DVD, and via iTunes.
