Trailer: Texas Chainsaw 3D (2013)

Finally, we get the trailer for January’s Texas Chainsaw 3D. Is it going to be awesome or is it going to suck? So far, we have a cool-ass poster with a wall of Leatherface masks and a large pic of Leatherface with his back to us. But the atmosphere and tone of each promises far more than than the fear of it being dreck. Can hope be had? A good 3D TCM horror film? Oh, please please please.

And, now, we have the trailer. And guess what? It don’t look half bad. In fact, Doc Rotten is fairly impressed and is now looking forward to this film. Who ever cut this trailer found definitive cues from the 2003 remake that did so well. The use of both blazing chain saws and terrifying silence make for a thrilling balance. The impact on the jarring buzz is exciting as hell. Yay!

Now, this sequel is a direct sequel to the original Tobe Hooper film from 1974 not a follow up of the recent films oddly enough. I’m not sure that really matters, it’s Leatherface and that damned saw that make it worth it all. Now it’s is time for Lionsgate and director John Luessenhop to deliver.


Official synopsis:

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…
