Among the top horror icons of all time, it's been awhile since we saw Leatherface hit the big screen with his signature chainsaw once a remake then prequel hit six years ago. For the better part of a year, however, the villain has been attempting to return to the big screen at an undetermined time but it seems Halloween is just too mainstream for this slasher. Instead 2013 will kick off with the alternate sequel to the 1974 original, titled Texas Chainsaw 3D while featuring an interesting cast of fresh meat. Today the first trailer for the gritty continuation has hit and features all the horror inklings (and possibly cliches) you've grown to known and love.
Lionsgate’s TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The townspeople long suspected the Sawyer family, owners of a local barbeque pit, were somehow responsible.
Their suspicions were finally confirmed one hot summer day when a young woman escaped the Sawyer house following the brutal murders of her four friends. Word around the small town quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family–or so they thought.
Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion’s dank cellars...
Starring Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, Trey Songz and more while directed by John Lussenhop, Texas Chainsaw 3D arrives January 4th 2013.
