John Lussenhop’s direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 original, Texas Chainsaw 3D, is just a week away from release here in the UK, and I am very excited! Today we have two new images to share with you as we try to contain ourselves!
Firstly comes a rather cool image of actor Gunnar Hansen, and in the new film he plays Boss Sawyer. However, he will be most recognizable to fans for playing the very first Leatherface in Tobe Hooper’s classic horror The Texas Chainsaw Massacre from way back in 1974. The new film features archive footage from Hooper’s legendary film, so we will get to see Hansen in two different forms in the new film, result! Also today we have a new poster for you. It brings together the shelves with masks on from the very first poster released, and adds a creepy Leatherface into the image, looking for which mask he wants to wear.
Texas Chainsaw 3D is directed by John Lussenhop and written by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan, Stephen Susco and Kirsten Elms. The films stars Alexandra Daddario as the ill fated Heather along with Tania Raymonde, Thom Barry, Bill Moseley, Scott Eastwood, Gunnar Hansen, Dan Yeager and Richard Riehle.

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…
