Iconic horror franchise, The Texas Chainsaw Massacreannounces its arrival on the Ethereum blockchain with the unveiling of Leatherfaces – a generative NFT project with illustrations by world class horror artist, Skinner. Alongside Ultra Rare, one of the most trusted teams on the Ethereum blockchain, a total of 10,666 Leatherface avatars will be made available on and grant collectors access to a Texas Chainsaw Massacre metaverse.

“As a lifelong horror fan, it’s an absolute honour to be able to bring Leatherface to the blockchain. The art from Skinner is incredible – brimming with energy and dark humour, which will appeal to horror and NFT fans alike,” said John Hickman, Founder of Ultra Rare.

In addition to the unique art, members of the bloody blockchain community will also have exclusive perks and utilities including entry into official film community events; chances at rare film memorabilia; screenings with the original creator; and other officially licensed merchandise and experiences.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a timeless classic,” said Kim Henkel, writer of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. “With our first NFT drop we continue to expand upon a tradition of rewarding the Chainsaw community – a community that’s driven by its intensely loyal fanbase – with new drops, merchandise, events, and access to the original film’s IP.”

On Halloween, Leatherfaces is releasing 666 mint passes which will award early adopters and fans with one of the first minted avatars. Those who purchase a mint pass will also have preferred pre-sale opportunities and will be granted admission to The 666 – a DAO that will serve as the decision-makers for Leatherfaces’ ongoing drops and experiences. The remaining memberships will go on public sale on November 13th, 2021, but horror fans can join Leatherfaces’ Discord.
