The first poster for Texas Chainsaw 3D has landed online and it’s decidedly eerie. The film, previously titled Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, picks up where the 1974 original left off, as a young woman has escaped the horrors of the Sawyer family and alerted authorities. The townspeople descend on the Sawyer household and burn it to the ground, seemingly putting an end to the family’s reign of terror (or so they think). The film jumps forward to present day where a young woman has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she didn’t know she had. Naturally, she discovers unspeakable horrors in the home’s underbelly, as the townspeople may not have gotten rid of the entire Sawyer family. This poster is a just as tease as we know very little about the actual film, but the variety of headwear for old Leatherface is disturbingly great.
Hit the jump to check out the full poster. Directed by John Luessenhop (Takers), the film stars Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, and Scott Eastwood. Texas Chainsaw 3D opens on January 4th, 2013.
Here’s the poster followed by the official synopsis:
Here’s the synopsis for Texas Chainsaw 3D:
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…
