Forget the reboot—a true sequel to the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre is on the way, and a freaky new motion poster hints at just how scary Leatherface will be in 3D.
The upcoming Texas Chainsaw 3D motion poster is all about Leatherface's trusty weapon of choice, which jumps right off the page in dirty, slice-y glory. If nothing else, it definitely looks like it could be as creepy as the original. Plus, this franchise was made for 3D technology.
The sequel is set to open Jan. 4, 2013.
Until then, here's the official synopsis, which explains how it all ties together:
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.What do you think? Will this be any good, or just another 3D cash-in?
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...
