A Clever Tagline is Best Part of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D' Poster
The film may not see release until October of 2012, but since it's October right now, what better time to gear up for some terror at this time next year? That's what Lionsgate is thinking with their debut of the teaser poster for the sequel/pseudo-franchise reboot The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. John Luesenhop (Takers) is bringing Leatherface back to the big screen, but this new film ignores every single sequel that came after the original 1973 film from Tobe Hooper and simply picks up after the end of the classic horror film to continue the story. The poster is kind of bland, but it has one damn great tagline. See it below!
Here's the teaser poster for John Luessenhop's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D (via IMP Awards):
Picking up immediately after the horrific events of the original 1973 film of the same name, this new installment featuring Leatherface follows Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & The Olympians: The Lightning Thief) as a young girl who heads to Texas to collect an inheritance that includes the infamous chainsaw killer. Several alumni of the original film like Gunnar Hansen, John Dugan, Marilyn Burns and Bill Moseley make appearances with some new blood coming in the form of Tania Raymonde, Trey Songz, Keram Malicki-Sanchez and more. John Luessenhop (Takers) directs the film in 3D working from a script by Debra Sullivan and Adam Marcus. The film hits theaters on October 5th, 2012. Excited?
This poster is fuckin badass, especially and it's only just a teaser. Can not wait for this movie!

It's like Hollywood can't stop milking Leatherface's nut-sack for a sleazy cash grab. Let it fucking die already. How about they take some risks and give us horror fns some NEW material. There's no shortage of original scripts out there. Stop circling back to tired old stuff that nobody wants to see. We've seen so many versions of this film, so why would anyone want to pay for another? What can this new version...sorry, reboot, possibly offer? 3D? Give me a fucking break. STOP REMAKING THIS SHIT!!! Why? Why do it? Why do they continue to pump the same shit down our throats? Just let this franchise be. LEAVE IT ALONE! And don't blame the audiences when this POS tanks dismally at the box office.

As much as I agree with you there is a reason this series is still being made just like all the other overused franchises. People like it, they go and see it and some actually enjoy it. Maybe one day it'll change...

Agreed. Unnecessary to say the least.

Haha, love the pun. To the above poster, it seems Fantastic Fest this year unleashed some amazing horror movies, so we'll have to take a trip the limited release theaters (if you hopefully live near NYC or LA, or have an art house near you) to see them.

And the studios are so short-sighted, they see something like this as being "less" risky. There's way more risk on an original idea that has no built-in audience. But I do agree - about time they grew some balls and took more risks. See SOURCE CODE as an example. Was not based on a comic, novel, or toy franchise. Totally original idea that was smart and engaging. More of that, please.

Hollywood is scare to make original materials. Remaking or adaptation is getting annoying. I want to see original material not some bullshit. I bet you they going to remake back to the future and when they do that, that's when I will never go to a movies theater again. They already fuck up teen wolf with that drama bullshit.
