Lionsgate has premiered a new poster for John Lussenhop’s TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, the direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic. We showed you the frankly awesome teaser poster not too long ago, and while I dig the simplicity of the new one above, I definitely prefer the “Evil Wears Many Faces” one-sheet. It is cool to see Leatherface front and center though, who is clearly still sporting 70’s fashion! Old habits die hard I suppose. TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D revs into theaters January 4th, 2013!
Synopsis: “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.“
