We recently learned that John Luessenhop’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D had received an R rating from the MPAA, so we are safe in the fact that we will not have some PG-13 drivel poured down our throats. However, even if the film is an R, that still doesn’t give us confirmation that it will deliver the goods, but it helps.
So while we still wait in anticipation for a trailer of sorts, we have just scored the teaser poster for the flick via Image Entertainment which hits theatres on January 4, 2013.
It should also be noted that the poster states; “Texas Chainsaw 3D“, so I’m guessing the title has been changed?
Synopsis:” Twenty years ago, the town of Newt, Texas exacted vengeance on the Sawyer family for their role in assisting and concealing murders committed by the chainsaw-wielding maniac Jeb Sawyer, aka “Leatherface.” The entire family was presume killed when Burt Hartman led the townspeople to burn down their farm house, but the Sawyer infant survived and was secretly taken away by two of the vigilante townies, Gavin and Arlene, and raised their daughter Heather. It’s not until she’s in her twenties that Heather learns that she’s adopted.
A lawyer for her grandmother tracks her down with word she’s been left an inheritance. Angry at her parents for lying to her, she sets out for Texas on a road trip with her boyfriend Ryan, friends Nikki and Kenny, and Darryl, a hitchhiker they pick up on the way.”
The film stars Alexandra Daddario, Bill Moseley and Gunnar Hansen.
