Lionsgate’s Texas Chainsaw 3D picks up where Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic left off in Newt, Texas, where for decades people went missing without a trace. The sequel was directed by John Luessenhop from a screenplay by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms.
I recently sat down with stars Alexandra Daddario and Trey Songz – who play a young couple in the film – to talk about the challenges of working with Leatherface and just how much the iconic original film influenced this one.
“Texas Chainsaw 3D picks up decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre seen in Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. In it, 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.”
I’ll have a more in-depth interview with Daddario (along with the film’s other stars and director John Luessenhop) posted tomorrow, but in the meantime head inside to check this one out! Texas Chainsaw 3D hits theaters this Friday, January 4th.
