It’s been rated “R” by the MPAA for “strong, grisly violence and language throughout.

“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.

Head inside for the breakdown of special features. Interestingly enough, the commentary features Tobe Hooper and not director John Luessenhop. We’ll add box art once we get it in a decent size.
