Hitch A Ride With A New Look At ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’

Texas Chainsaw 3D

Bloody reader sent us in a new look at Lionsgate’s Texas Chainsaw 3D, which 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. We reported from the set. We even interviewed director John Luessenhop about the sequel!

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…

    Has there ever been a Texas Chainsaw Massacre without groups of people in it for the body count? Has there ever been one where it was just one person being attacked?

      Well… The second TCM was sort of about only one person being attacked. Stretch. It was essentially about her and being stalked at the radio station and then at the abandoned park where the gang held up. Dennis Hopper was a cop who was on to these people and ended up helping Stretch (SPOILER) survive. Awful spoiler alert. So yeah, there has been a TCM about one person being attacked, I’d say.
