Wizard Video

Another cheap marketing attempt from a non-gaming company. Wizard Video was the distributor of Texas Chainsaw Massacre on videotape, and they decided a videogame would be a good idea. In releasing Halloween and Texas Chainsaw Massacre, they introduced the first horror videogames to the market. Poor distribution and the fact that many retailers kept these titles behind the counter hidden from plain view lead to poor sales. The games are highly collectible today due to their scarcity and crossover appeal to horror memorabilia collectors. They are very difficult to find complete in the box.
