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 presumed killed when Burt Hartman led the townspeople to burn down their farmhouse, but the Sawyer infant survived and was secretly taken away by two of the vigilante townies, Gavin and Arlene, and raised as 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.
Arriving in Newt, Texas, Heather is shown to her grandmother’s house by lawyer Farnsworth – and is shocked to find it’s a massive and opulent mansion. While the others get food at a local store, Darryl explores the mansion and inadvertently frees Leatherface from a sealed room — a mistake he will soon regret.
The only downfall seems to be the 3D, which in all reality could be pretty fun if done properly. Expect to see some cameo’s as well from Tope Hooper (Director of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre), Gunnar Hansen (The original Leatherface), Bill Mosely (Chop Top from TCM Part 2), Marilyn Burns (Sally from the 1974 version) and John Dugan, who will reprise his role as “Grandfather” from the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D will hit theaters January 4th, 2013.
