Creepy First Poster for TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D Is Full of Faces

by     Posted 2 years, 1 day ago


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 EastwoodTexas 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…

    Well let’s hope this doesn’t suck as horribly as the previous two.

  • Hugo

    Basic fundamental things that the responsible of the first two movie didn\’t get :

    Keep the family members to a minimum, the more psychos you add to the family the more unlikely the idea seems, you don\’t want an audience thinking \" how could there not be one sane member in a family of 9 or 10? what are the odds?\"

    Don\’t make the family of a superior number of the victims! That shouldn\’t even be necessary to say. The victims must have more chances of survive than the other way around! 4 teenagers against 10 psychos is not sportsman like! ( like a man bigger than myself said) doesn\’t create any suspense! Give them the chance to survive , or give the audience hope, even if you plain to kill everyone of them!

    This one is vital: The Hewyts are INSANE not EVIL , big difference! Leather-face is a retarded giant that doesn\’t know better, not evil incarnate which is what he feels like in the recent movies.
    Every scene in the original 1974 classic that makes you realize what a sorry nut job every deranged member of the family is , is of vital importance, as much as any scene that makes you feel sorry for the creatures is in the original Frankenstein movie.

    The Hewyt family must feel like the worst attempt ever to a normal family , not to a clan of evil sadistic fucks!

    Leather-face in not Freddy Krueger or Pinhead, guys.

    And last but not least: keep the cinematography realistic! Something very important about the original movie is that , as soon as you are outside the house everything looks and sounds as a nice summer day. Don\’t exaggerate with the Gothic stuff, the grim looking interiors and the menacing colors and lights, let the audience feel that they probably have been in a similar situation some day and THEN you bash them with a meat hammer! In other words, shock with the horror , don\’t announce it.

      Hewitt’s aren’t in this one man. Sawyer’s FTW!!!!

    The amazing thing about this one is that it won’t be a sequel to the Bay-ified previous films. It is a direct sequel to the first one. This one exists in the old CHAINSAW universe; no Hewitt family here, the Sawyer’s (from TCM 1, 2, and 3) are back to spread carnage. That for me is worth the price admission. I’ll even wade through 3D wasteland…just give me my CHAINSAW, damnit!
