‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D’ Plot and Spoilers

A plot emerges for The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D reboot Plot details have emerged for director John Luessenhop's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D reboot, which just today set its theatrical release date for October 5, 2012. The plot details come courtesy of What's Playing; read on if you dare, spoilers abound:

"The new film, set today, will see the authorities and some angry townspeople ambushing the Sawyer home -- where Jeb Stuart is accused of carrying out his butchering.

Hooper, the local by-the-book sheriff, had agreed to give Leatherface/Jeb Sawyer a fair trial and grant him a good lawyer.... But that's before local mayor Burt Hartman, an imposing town tough-guy, arrives with a mob to see that the murderer/s don't even make it past their front door. Though they both want justice, Hooper and Burt have different methods. Things escalate when Burt's mob start tying ropes to trees, prepping for a hanging, and ultimately throw a flaming cocktail into the Sawyer home... burning the place, and it's residents (including Jeb's father, Drayton, played by Bill Moseley), to the ground.

Goodbye Sawyers... goodbye Leatherface?

You can guess what happens next: The Chainsaw killings start up again (there's a fun sequence at a carnival where our villain starts chopping away at the attendees) and Hooper is forced to believe that Jeb Stuart somehow survived the fire and is back for revenge. But is it Jeb? And if not, who is it? and why have they surfaced?"

Texas Chainsaw 3D was released January 4th, 2013.

    Honestly, I'm looking forward to this. Maybe they will do it right, maybe not. I actually like the fact that they're not just repeating the other films and doing at least a somewhat original story.

      Why remake this in gimmicky 3D!?! In all honesty I loved the remake and prequel and theyve been one of only a few horror remakes to even come close to the original. Texas Chainsaw Massacre has to be the big daddy of gore fest and this sounds like they wanna make it into a crappy My Bloody Valentine hacking fest. Bad idea and just cashing in on the title and Leatherface. It may be worthy of a watch but I'm gunna await trailer to make final judgement but I'm not expecting much.

        @jptheredskull well ofcourse everything has potential. but, i just don't see this one being good. but maybe it'll surprise me. and i really hope it does.

          Why does the mob have to interfer with everything?!?!?!? esp*cially if it's a towns mayor with associattions to the mob!


          • jptheredskull • 4 years ago

            @combatmadness360@thedude-abides I think this could be good. If its taking place after the original than ok but as a remake, no.

              What the f*ck?????? No. No! NO! God damn it! If they're going to remake a horror classic, why don't they just stick to what the original had with a few changes? Bring the Meat-Eating back *sshole producers!


              • combatmadness360 • 4 years ago

                @thedude-abides couldn't agree more. this just sounds stupid. I want a film that could actually be scary like that. this sh*t just sounds f*cking lame.

                  I couldn't agree with you guys even more. This is a lame remake plus it being modern.

                      sounds really f*cking stupid...


                      • thedude-abides • 4 years ago

                        I wish someone would make a movie about the real leatherface, Ed Gein. The movies never have done him justice. Ted Levine's character, Buffalo Bill, in the Silence of the Lambs (who was also based on Gein) was a much closer rendition. This movie sounds pathetic.

                            Sounds kinda stupid. Also sounds like they were influenced by A Nightmare on Elm Street.
