The first Texas Chainsaw Massacre film was absolutely terrifying, and none of the sequels have been able to replicate that insanity. Hollywood keeps trying to do it, but always falls short. The original is a one of a kind film, but as you know Lionsgate is looking to revive the franchise again with Texas Chainsaw 3D. We all know that 3D doesn't make a movie better, and regardless of all the failed attempts with this franchise, I still hope that this one ends up surprising me.
The studio teamed up with with Vice.com to bring us a collection of 30 cool pieces of poster art for The Gallery of Horrors: Original Art & Video Inspired by Texas Chainsaw 3D. Lionsgate will eventually release these as a single image. I've posted some of my favorite pieces below, but to see all 30 head on over to Vice.com. Some of these designs are very inventive and awesome.
The film was directed by John Luessenhop and stars Alexandra Daddario, Dan Yeager, Trey Songz, Scott Eastwood and Tania Raymonde. It opens up in theaters on January 4th, 2013, and it's a direct sequel to the original film.
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…
