Release Date: January 4, 2013
Studio: Lionsgate
Director: John Luessenhop (Takers)
Cast: Alexandra Daddario, Dan Yeager, Tremaine Neverson, Scott Eastwood, Tania Raymonde, Shaun Sipos, Keram Malicki-Sanchez, James MacDonald, Thom Barry, Paul Rae and Richard Riehle.
Plot: 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…

Thoughts: When Lionsgate first announced the plot of the movie [SEE: Texas Chainsaw 3D Poster and Plot Details] I thought it was weird; “Even with the “3? in the title, this movie is not a sequel to the two modern rebooted movies in the series from the Platinum Dunes (the 2003 Jessica Biel starring The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its 2006 prequel The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning). No, Texas Chainsaw 3D is a direct sequel to the 1974 original, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Ironically, this would mark the third direct sequel to the original film after 1986?s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 from the original director Tobe Hooper and 2004?s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation.” And I still think it is weird. Why not just craft a stand alone story with Leatherface? That what the actual story feels like. It doesn’t feel like a direct sequel that picks up moments after the original. I’d prefer it if it was just “after” the other movies and stood on its own feet.

There is a lot of good horror left in a character like Leatherface. Texas Chainsaw 3D really does just seem like more of the same. Why not change it up a bit? Have Leatherface go on a massacre in Dallas or Houston. Hell, at this point I’d rather see “Leatherface in Space” than another movie with a bunch of young people in an old mansion in the middle of nowhere getting put on hooks and cut up with a chainsaw.- even if it is now in 3D. Ugh.

I’m a huge fan of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre series. The original was one of the films that defined horror to me as a kid and Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3 was one of those bad films that was so much fun that I could watch it over and over. Most of the other six films in the series were forgettable or more of the same, but you’ll find that with any horror series. Texas Chainsaw 3D is the seventh film in the series and it is really weird.

Even with the “3” in the title, this movie is not a sequel to the two modern rebooted movies in the series from the Platinum Dunes (the 2003 Jessica Biel starring The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and its 2006 prequel The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning). No, Texas Chainsaw 3D is a direct sequel to the 1974 original, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre. Ironically, this would mark the third direct sequel to the original film after 1986’s The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 from the original director Tobe Hooper and 2004’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation. So maybe the three in the title is deserved?

The poster is a nice homage to all of the Leatherface movies and it should be interesting to see how they try and connect the films. It has been revealed that archive footage from the original movie will be used in the new one that shows original actors Verna Carson and Gunnar Hansen. The plot is familiar; “A young woman travels to Texas, along with her friends, to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-wielding maniac is part of the reward.” It doesn’t sound like this has to (or should be) a direct sequel to the original rather than just another Leatherface movie. What is with director’s obsession to make a direct sequel to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre? Guys, just get your stuff together and do your own thing. Pay your respect to the original, but don’t try so hard to make the definite sequel. The time has passed, no one is looking for it. The horror flick is scheduled for release on January 4, 2013 from Lionsgate.

Earlier this week Phasekitty and I were invited to the SmodCastle to preview Kevin Smith’s upcoming EPIX comedy special Too Fat for 40 and to sit down for a Q&A with the man himself. According to Smith, when EPIX approached him with the idea of a comedy special, he jumped at the chance to be like George Carlin for a day and put on his own comedy special. Here is a short clip from special:

If you have seen any of the Evening with Kevin Smith DVDs, than you know the basic drill, Kevin Smith gets up in front of a large live audience to answer their questions and shoot the shit. One thing that sets apart this special from those DVDs is the fact that he spends the whole special answering the first audience member’s question. That is a two hour response to a basic Q&A question with as many tangents and side stories as humanly possible.

Smith knows how to talk to an audience and he isn’t afraid to split very personal details about himself, his family, friends, and people he has worked with. One thing that really struck me about the 20 minute preview of the special is how much new content was apart of it. I’ve seen Smith talk more times that I can count, trekking out to his appearances at Wonder Con and Comic Con over the years and I own all of his Evening With DVDs. He usually repeats his stories pretty often. It has been two years since his last DVD (Kevin Smith: Sold Out – A Threevening with Kevin Smith) and he has a lot of new stories that have been building, including a lot of nuggets about the production of Cop Out with Bruce Willis and Tracy Morgan.

Too Fat for 40 premieres on EPIX this coming Saturday, October 23rd. Before the comedy special, EPIX is holding a free hour long live interactive Q&A with Kevin Smith. Visitors to the site can submit questions to Smith in real time. For a free two week trial membership of EPIX, head on over here. In addition to the special, on EPIX you can check out hundreds of movies online, included in the mix are Star Trek, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Madea Goes to Jail, and G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra to name a few.

How in the world is REPO! The Genetic Opera not hitting theaters midnight on Halloween? Darren Lynn Bousman’s horror musical would be the perfect way to end All Hallows Eve. Instead, we’ll have to wait until November 7th, when the film gets a limited release in Los Angeles. It is unknown if and when the film will open wide.

Lionsgate’s official description of the film; “In the not so distant future, an epidemic of organ failures devastates the planet. Out of the tragedy, a savior emerges: GeneCo, a biotech company that offers organ transplants… for a price. Those who miss their payments are scheduled for repossession and hunted by villainous Repo Men. In a world where surgery addicts are hooked on painkilling drugs and murder is sanctioned by law, a sheltered young girl searches for the cure to her own rare disease as well as information about her family’s mysterious history. After being sucked into the haunting world of GeneCo’s Genetic Opera, she won’t turn back until she finds what she’s looking for.”
