2013 brings us back to the scene of the massacre. Texas Chainsaw 3D (which has now, officially, lost the “Massacre” from the title) hits theaters right after the new year, on January 4, and picks up right where the 1974 original left off. It then takes us to the present where a young girl discovers a dark family secret that may or may not involve Leatherface and chainsaws.
A new poster for the John Luessenhop-directed film has been released and it’s super creepy. Check it out and read the new plot summary below.
Thanks to Fangoria for the new image. Here goes.
And here’s the plot synopsis from the same article. Possible spoilers abound:
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…
This movie is a huge mystery to us. I was on the set and I honestly can’t tell you much about it. The fact that the release date got pushed from October to January is also huge quesiton mark, but, if it provides a decent story with a ton of violence and some cool 3D effects, it could clean up with literally no horror competition early next year.
What do you think of the new poster? Are you looking forward to this film?
