New Texas Chainsaw Trailer Online
Leatherface kills your buzz - again!

14 September 2012  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Apple

Gang of teens? Check. Screaming? Loud. Chainsaw? Growling. All ingredients present and correct then: following the poster from a couple of week's ago, here's the first trailer for Texas Chainsaw 3D.

It's very much business as usual for the Leatherfaced franchise: we immediately start with some kids in a van, and a not-at-all-gratuitous shot of a girl in her bra. It's then off to chez-Sawyer for some poking around the apparently deserted homestead, before the not-honestly-so-surprising reveal that "someone" is sewing masks in a dark corner of the property. It's not long before one of the gang is hung up and buzzed at. "It happened before," says the blurb. Yup, six times.

The action moves from the house - never again as gnarly as it was in Tobe Hooper's original film - to somewhere industrial, to a graveyard, where there's a nice moment of tense quiet before everything kicks off again. If we learned anything, it's that coffins aren't necessarily good hiding places.

Principal scream queen this time is Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson), with support from Tania Raymonde and Scott Eastwood. We're also promised roles of varying size for series royalty Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns and Bill Moseley.

The director is John Luessenhop (Takers), and having missed the Hallowe'en deadline, the film's buried in the UK on January 4.

L: The Waco Kid the trouble with "Horror" movies these days is they just aren't gory enough you'll get a scene of someone getting mashed with a chainsaw and they'll cut away to the sound of screaming i mean what the fuck. to see blood and masses of scenes of gratuitous carnage and mayhemis Herschell Gordon Lewis when you need him ote] 'Cuz the original TCM was totally all about shitloads of gore and not building tension while showing very little actual splatter.

A new Texas Chainsaw could have been good.... could have been. But I never had high hopes for this, and the trailer looks shit. More

Looks shit. A sequel to the original that already had several sequels (themselves with no strict continuity) and a remake that had a prequel. What a convoluted mess, and what a dull trailer! More

Whoa, it's out in January? That's the Elephant Graveyard of movies where the studios dump all their stinkers that couldn't hack it in the Christmas market. Not a good sign but then I wasn't expecting much from this anyway. Tobe Hooper couldn't even make a decent sequel to his original. More

I'm lost. Where are we now with this?! Sequel? Prequel? "Re-imagining"? I'm lost. Another classic consigned to duff re-make-slash-reworking-slash-prequel-slash-slash-slash -hell. How many more slashes can one franchise survive...? More
