Texas Chainsaw Massacre board game from Trick or Treat studios


Based on the slasher classic, the game is available for pre-order now.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is one of the most iconic horror films of all time. The Tobe Hooper the directed slasher that introduced Leatherface to the world is nearly 50 years old, and in recent years the grind-house backwoods horror show has received plenty of love and new merchandise to celebrate the film’s unsettling legacy. Trick or Treat Studios is now adding a spooky new board game to Texas Chainsawthe ever-growing list of products


The aptly titled “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Game” was designed by Scott Rogers with illustration work by Terry Wolfinger. The game takes you through the events of the 1974 film as you and three friends recreate the scenes. It starts with your van running out of gas, which leaves you in survival mode as Leatherface and his family aren’t too far behind. Players work together to fend off this iconic family, with the game asking you to pull tokens from a “dreadful bag” to perform actions. However, if you take too many tokens, it will make Leatherface angry and horror fans will know what happens when you drive this maniac wearing a skin mask crazy. A chase and chainsaw death is sure to follow. The game itself lasts about an hour and you must be 14 or older to play.


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre to this day is still considered by many horror fans to be the scariest movie ever made. There’s a good reason for that. Hooper created a film which, combined with Daniel PearlThe sickening cinematography makes blood flow if you dare to touch it. The film endlessly terrifies with its brilliantly grotesque imagery, sound design, and uncanny documentary quality. From the first second, when you hear Jean Larroquettefrom the haunting narration of events to come, you sweat anxiously. This intense feeling only grows with time, making the introduction of Leatherface a time of horror. While the franchise has seen many iterations since 1974, nothing hits you like the emotionally brutal original.
