Leatherface is Back!! See the 1st Artwork for Texas Chainsaw 3D
I’m always down for another TEXAS CHAINSAW flick, and apparently Lionsgate thinks the same way as I do. The first artwork for the upcoming TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D has been released, and judging by the poster this one looks pretty bad ass!! The film returns to and further explores old Leatherface’s hometown of Newt, Texas and expands on Leatherface’s twisted family. According to Fangoria, the makeup FX will be handled from f/x icons Greg Nicotero and Howard Berger, and will have John Dugan reprising his role as “Grandfather” and original series stars Marilyn Burns, Bill Moseley and Gunnar Hansen are all on board. Check out the plot crunch:
Lionsgate’s 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…
Do you think the world needs another TEXAS CHAINSAW flick? Whatever you might think (and I wanna hear about it), ya gotta hand it to Lionsgate. They’re at least putting in the cash for some kick ass special f/x and some horror icon royalty!!
TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D will be tearing into theaters on January 4, 2013.
