The first trailer for Texas Chainsaw 3D has been released. Fans of the franchise will probably be happy as they look to get exactly what they expect from this new installment. The trailer is quick to establish who is probably going to be the first to die (a half-naked girl who appears to enjoy drugs), but doesn’t do much else to establish why this film was warranted. Expect a lot of chainsaw-centric 3D gimmicks and a rehashing of the original storyline. If that’s all you’re really looking for in a Texas Chainsaw movie, this trailer should be enough to whet your appetite.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Directed by John Luessenhop (Takers), the film stars Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, Dan Yeager, and Scott Eastwood. Texas Chainsaw 3D opens on January 4th, 2013.

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…
