Go Behind-the-Scenes Of ‘Texas Chainsaw 3D’ With MTV and Dubstep

3-Texas-Chainsaw-3D

The cast and crew of Lionsgate’s Texas Chainsaw 3D, which has been rated “R” by the MPAA for “strong, grisly violence and language throughout,” talks to MTV in the following behind-the-scenes video.

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…

    Yeah regardless of the mediocre trailer I’m still pretty pumped for this. Side note: the music playing over that video is fucking annoying, I guess MTV can’t do anything without being obnoxious.

    I just know i’m going to be sitting in the theater and yelling out at the screen every time they do something that the Platinum Dunes version already did. Fucking irritating just watching that little featurette.

    I love the og version,but im so fucking sick of the horror movie cliche of young people on a road trip find the house and they all die credits roll.Can anyone have any fresh ideas anymore?The trailer looks terrible but I hope im wrong.

    Every post I read about TC3D it always says “It was almost rated NC-17″. Why does it say that? lol Can’t wait to see this though!

    This is bullshit. They honestly should give us a scene to see of Leatherface. Pictures aren’t always exciting, ya know…
