‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D’ Trailer & Poster: Leatherface in Your Face

Published 3 years ago by

Some things just never end (even when they should). It’s been long-rumored, but now The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D has finally materailized, as evidenced by the trailer for this continuation of the franchise.

With this latest installment, it’s Lionsgate and Millennium Films (the studios behind The Expendables) pushing for this unnecessary revisit to the classic horror franchise – instead of Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes. The “story” revolves around a girl named Heather, who unexpectedly inherits a large house out in the country and travels there with friends to investigate her reward. But when they get there, it quickly becomes apparent that the house has a dark and evil history – one that is not yet done being written… in their blood.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D provides us with fresh meat in the form of Percy Jackson star Alexandra Daddario in the lead role as Heather, alongside Tania Raymonde (Alex on Lost), Scott Eastwood (Clint Eastwood’s son), Shaun Sipos (star of the new Melrose Place) and pop-R&B singer Trey Songz. Horror movie icons like Gunnar Hansen (the original Leatherface) and Bill Moseley (Army of Darkness, Halloween (2007), Repo! The Genetic Opera, Grindhouse) make appearances – while newcomer Dan Yeager suits up to play the chainsaw-wielding maniac this time around.

This trailer is really just a teaser of the gore and horror that will be literally coming at us in 3D; something tells that director John Luessenhop (Takers) is going to use the stereoscopic format in full celebration of kitschy B-movie gimmickry, rather than trying to use it in any especially artistic or immersive manner. For fans of films like Piranha 3D or the Resident Evil franchise (in 3D), this should be another fun film entry for you.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D will cut into theaters on January 4, 2013.

  1. So is this a sequel to the reboot series – Texas Chainsaw 1 and prequel The Beginning? Or is this a very late sequel to the original series?

  2. …Or is this a reboot in itself?

    • I believe it is a sequel to the original as well as a reboot.

      • No, I think it’s a reboot to the reboot and the original, but also a sequel to the original and the Beginning, which is a prequel to the reboot and to the original itself I think, though some may consider sequels to the original to be the first reboots which makes this film a reboot in itself but can also be a sequel.

        LOL, just had to do that.

        • I think you just busted an Inception just by reading what you just said lol even my head hurst just reading it through again

        • Am I a reboot?? Lol

          • “Am I a reboot?” I just reboot your reboot.

  3. I think this is a sequal to the original, forgetting everything that has happened since, even Tobe Hoopers original sequal set in a disused fairground and the remakes, so it’s the Sawyer family and not the Hewitt family, which would make Leatheface about 60 odd years old if this is set in the present day which I think it is! The girl is related to the survivor of the first movie or something, im probably wrong, when this was first announced I as under the impression that the girl would inherit Leatherface and have to take him home with her, like a crazy rain man serial killer road trip movie which sounded awesome, this looks like everything else that has been done with the franchise!

    Confused? Yeah me to!

  4. looks decent. i’ll check it out.

  5. I’d say it probably is not a continuation of the last 2 movies being as there is no sign of Sergeant Hartman. But I feel if you’ve seen one them you’ve seen them all. I’ll wait for this one to come out on DVD.

  6. All I have to say is, where’s the meat hook?

  7. that is one VERY TINY TINY preview….. I sure hope they adapt it to the BIG SCREEN!!!!


  8. Seriously the dumbest remake…all i know is I know how this will end, they always add this college type ppl in this horror movies, a slut, a tough guy, another guy of different race also other ppl who will be to dumb to survive, and eventually it will end like every other dumb horror movies like Cabin in the woods. Hollywood really messes things up like always, def not watching this. Just saying whats in my mind, not to upset people.

  9. Isn’t this the third of the reboot series, I mean it’s got 3 in the title. I’m pretty sure that’s the intention. It seems hollywood is doing this all backwards “Let’s find all the movies that are up to a third installment and put 3D in the title, cos ya’know it’s so clever to do that”.

  10. goddammit NOOOOOOOOO!!! polished plastic studio crap!! rebooting AGAIN?! and it looks instantly worse than the reboots?? at least Bay’s had style and a clever grind house look. this looks so terrible and bland! and they have they balls to ignore the best film in the series (Hooper’s “part 2″) and retcon the whole damn thing?! as if this will be better than leatherface, next gen, reboot and beginning?? grrrrrr…

    • Yes it will

  11. Yeah, okay…..

    Best part of this preview for me was the fact there was a commercial for a Disney show called 9th Grade Ninja that played before the trailer. That’s classic….

  12. Wooooow…this looks scary as hell.

  13. Reboot. Won’t see. I am protesting all reboots of movies that are not 15-20 yrs old. Michael Bay just did this. And they were pretty good. I have rather see a sequel to them.

  14. The same shiny young LA model types…. The same BIG LOUD SHOCKS in the generic soundtrack… the same storyline as 549 other Hostel/Saw/I Know What You Did movies so far… the same creepy house with secret rooms.. the same rednecky mute bad-teeth guy as a villian… the same…. the same…. zzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    • Gunnar endorsed Leatherface and ’73 scenes, not the same
