[NYCC '12] Hi-Res Look At That ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ One-Sheet!

Texas-Chainsaw-Banner

We’ve now scored a high resolution look at that new Texas Chainsaw 3D poster that’ll be on display at the New York Comic-Con this coming weekend.

Texas Chainsaw 3D has been rated “R” by the MPAA for “strong, grisly violence and language throughout.” It was almost NC-17 and has footage from Tobe Hooper’s 1974 original post converted to 3-D. Evan Saathoff dissected the trailer.

In theaters January 4, 2013, the sequel is being directed by John Luessenhop from a screenplay by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms. Dan Yeager, John Dugan, Bill Moseley, Alexandra Daddario, Sue Rock, Tania Raymonde, Scott Eastwood, Gunnar Hansen, Tobe Hooper, Paul Rae, Keram Malicki-Sánchez, Ritchie Montgomery, Trey Songz, Marilyn Burns, Shaun Sipos, Thom Barry and Richard Riehle star.

The seventh incarnation is a direct sequel to Hooper’s classic 1974 film that follows the lead character, Heather, who along with her friends, travel to Texas in order to collect an inheritance. The spin? What would you do if you found out your cousin was Leatherface, and he was now YOURS?

‘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…

    Leatherface could stand to gain a few pounds, but good poster.

  • evilfairydust

    Simple, but wonderful.

  • ThunderDragoon

    I agree nowaygetreal. His size is my only gripe thus far. I wish he was bigger.

  • Weatherface

    Am I the only person to spot the major problem with this poster… Where’s the freaking chainsaw?

    • evilfairydust

      Yeah, that bothers me too. I definitely would have included it, but Leatherface is so iconic at this point that it’s not a necessity.

  • Thomas Hewitt Sawyer the fiff

    Man the fucking mask … how twisted and fucking gritty it looks… It looks like they got Leatherface /Perfect/ in this. If this movie manages to capture even half the depravity as the original then I’ll be one happy son of a bitch.
