Bloody Tools and Skin Masks Abound in 'Texas Chainsaw 3D' Poster
Because a horror franchise never dies, we have the first poster for Lionsgate's Texas Chainsaw 3D, which 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. After the last incident, 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. Another poster debuted last fall when the film was slated for release this year, but a new poster reaveals the January 2013 release date and just hints at the horror awaiting Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson and the Olympians). It's pretty gross. Look below!
Here's the first trailer for John Luessenhop's Texas Chainsaw 3D from Fangoria:
Decades after a mob was believed to have killed every last member of the murderous Sawyer family, hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather (Alexanda Daddario) 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 true horror awaits them in the dark cellars of the residence. Tania Raymonde, Trey Songz, Scott Eastwood and more also star in John Luessenhop's Texas Chainsaw 3D arriving January 4th, 2013.

Dig the poster.

the poster is unsettling, twisted, and directly linked to the mythology. so, yes, excellent work! do we need another - what is this, the 7th? they're cheap to make and almost always get their money back, so we're always going to have more until people stop paying to see them. nothing will ever top the first one for sheer atmosphere, though, that ability to be terrifying without being a bloodbath.

The Tobe Hooper classic! My girlfriend is hesitant to watch it, saying she doesn't want "a gorefest". That's one of the things I love about the original, the ablility to pull you into a nightmare with one of the most horrific killers in cinematic history, yet never once depends on blood and gore. I bet anyone who hasn't seen it has the same misconception. (personally, I enjoy gory films, but this is one that just didn't need it. Carpenter's Halloween as well.)

absolutely. and many people have the same misconception. gore is fine and can be great at times, but there is something very powerful about a nightmare that really crawls right under your skin and stays there. films like the 1974 classic (and, yes, Halloween) are certainly rare these days.

Reminds me more JEEPERS CREEPERS than THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE. Still though...
