Starting in 1974 with The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Leatherface can almost be considered as the horror genre's equivalent to James Bond. Every few years or so, another crop of kids find themselves fleeing from this chainsaw-wielding madman in either a sequel or a reboot. Opening in theaters January 4, Texas Chainsaw 3D could possibly be considered both a sequel and a remake, since it gives us a fresh take on the franchise while still continuing the original storyline from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, albeit several years later. The story centers on Heather (Alexandra Daddario), a young woman who has never known the truth about her real family, until she receives word that she has inherited a Texas estate from a distant relative. When Heather and her friends take a detour on their road trip to check out the house, well, let's just say that's when that unmistakable chainsaw sound starts up once again. I recently had the chance to speak with Alexandra Daddario and Trey Songz, who plays Heather's boyfriend Ryan, about this 3D thriller. Take a look at what they had to say with our exclusive video interview.
