TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D Has A Trailer. That Fades to Black. A Lot.
In January 2013, a new chapter will be added to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, with this particular title dropping the Massacre but adding 3D.
Instead of a reboot of the original story or a remake of the 1986 film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2, this one goes in an entirely different direction. Check this synopsis:
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.
Ehm... OK? An isolated mansion with a monster in the basement? Sounds like this could be a Texas Chainsaw Massacre by way of Fulci...
Lionsgate has just released a trailer for Texas Chainsaw 3D and here it is. Lots of black pauses and flashing in this, and also some girls with few clothes on. So far, I do not notice anything which even tries to adhere to the classic nature of Tobe Hooper's original, but we shall see. The poster, at least, is cool.
