Nearly forty years after Tobe Hooper’s landmark slice of
southern terror, we’re returning to Newt, Texas.
A direct descendent of the original Sawyers and Hooper’s
classic, TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D finds a young woman named Heather discover the worst
case scenario in long-lost relatives. As per usual, Lionsgate has unveiled a
striking, nasty piece of art to get us ready—a peek inside Leatherface’s
creative process (a face for every occasion!).
Featuring makeup FX from legends Greg Nicotero and Howard
Berger, John Dugan reprising his role as Grandfather and original series stars
Marilyn Burns, Bill Moseley and Gunnar Hansen all on board, here’s what you can
expect from TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D:
Lionsgate’s TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D continues the legendary story

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…
