Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D trailer
From horroryearbook, One of the most rebooted horror franchises is getting another reboot!
Lionsgate has created a new sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original 1974 horror classic. If you’re keeping score: There are two originals The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974) and Platinum Dunes remake in 2003, one prequel, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006), two kinda-reboots, Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990) and Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation (1994), and now two sequels, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre II (1986), and Lionsgate’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D (2013).
I know Leatherface was called part 3, but it was basically a reboot, which attempted to make Leatherface the new Freddy, who “died” in 1991. I have no explanation for The Next Generation, and it hardly seems like a sequel to the first three. Anywhoo, that’s a lot of fucking reboots. Check out the official description and trailer for the second sequel, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D, which will hit theaters(?) on January 4.
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…
