    This is NOT at all related to the 2003 Remake & 2006 Prequel made by NEW LINE CINEMA.

    This is LIONSGATE's "sequel" to the original 1974 The Texas Chainsaw Massacre directed by Tobe Hooper.

    The Plot:

    The horror project 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…





    I'm pretty stoked! I, for one, did appreciate the 2003 remake Michael Bay produced, BUT.........................it was a little too "Hannah Montana" compared to the brute tension filled 1974 original. That & I'm tired as fuck of movies with that "sepia" tone to 'em (Looking at ALL your horror remakes Michael Bay!)

    For fans of the original, this'll be interesting as seeing there are ties to the original. Graveyards that are dug up w/ corpses missing (also a trait from the original), & it'll have some of the family characters from the original in this one but reprised by different actors. I really hope this movie begins RIGHT when blood soaked Sally is making her escape from jumping through the dining room windows & finding help out in the open road just feet away from Leatherface!!

    The ONLY "red flag" for me about this is: They casted a rapper (Trey Songz) in it. I say this cuz generally when a rapper is casted in a horror film, it's hard to take seriously (anyone remember Halloween 8: Resurrection w/ Busta Rhymes??! Yiiiiiikes!)

    I honestly can't say that this entry will be "good" - but it does look a bit gritty & fun! Guess I'll find out in January......

    I have to admit it: Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 -- which tried to be something of a legit follow-up -- is wildly entertaining, super-gross, and often ridiculously funny. "Hang up! Hang up! Hang up, hang up, hang up!"

    This latest take -- I dunno. It's looking awfully well-tread.

    The trouble with all the sequels and remakes, though, is that there's really only so much story to tell about the great American pioneer turned cannibal pervert. They all basically have the same narrative. You'd almost have to set one in a big urban center to have a change of pace.

    Anyway, this trailer is still awesome.

    Elusium - I, myself, am a HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE HUGE fan of the original 1986's TCM Part 2!

    First off: Chop-Top is by far one of my FAV screen villains EVER! "Liiiiiick My Plaaaaate Yooou Dog Dick!"


    Plus I loved Caroline Williams as our Radio DJ heroine, Stretch!

    The soundtrack was fucking epic

    It was so over the top, it was perfect balance of its campy tone to 1974's brutal gritty realistic tone.....


    I love the original sequel (Part 2) Tobe Hooper made in 1986. That is a fav, it's on my shelf & it's going NOwhere icon_razz.gif

    Part 2 (1986) was the ONLY one w/ a different plot. All the others are the same variations on a theme.

    The one with Jessica Beil from 2003 was my favourite!

    OMG I cannot fucking wait for this to come out. Im obsessed with slasher horror movies.

    I always imagine myself if I were in the movie and if I had to face Leatherface, I would definatley die. He is too damn fast. icon_neutral.gif

    Over produced horror movies are not for me.

    It sucks that hollywood always tarnish great movies that they didn't want to be part of in the first place.

    But the original sequal had Bill Moseley in it! He went on to be Otis in Rob Zombie's horror movies!

    If you think about it, The Devil's Rejects was the ideal Chainsaw sequel.

    Yup! As Bill Mosely was CHOP-TOP in Chainsaw Massacre Part 2 in the mid 80's...def my fav character! He went on to do Otis Firefly in the Rob Zombie films..

    & yes Devils Rejects could be seen as a great follow up to Chainsaw! haha

    The original Chainsaw is the best though.....hands down scarier than the 2003 remake, imho!

    & on that note - here's Bill Mosely's (Devil's Rejects, House of 1,000 Corpses) first movie role as the major villain Chop-Top in 1986's The Texas Chainsaw Massacre Part 2!!!

    As much as the joking cliche is to say the "black guy will bite the dust first"...

    Unfort usually the rappers survive if casted in a horror film!

    I don't know about this one, it looks like today's cheesy modern horror movie icon_rolleyes.gif Plus the actors look like they came out of Disney

    I don't know what the OP meant that the 2003 remake was like Hanna Montana. It stayed true to the style of the original and had alot of gore in it. Jessica biel did such an awesome job on that one and the atmosphere was really dark (the pig slaughter house, leather face basement). The ending of the 2003 remake was the best, way better than the original!

    Some of the queasiest moments in the first three films are only implied. When the girl in the first movie -- trapped in the mad family's charnel house -- offers herself up to the men, the men just laugh mockingly, meaning they have no sexual appetite for her. Leatherface does his impotent seduction of the captive DJ in the second movie, and just as he confuses a person with food on the Speak & Say, he can't distinguish intercourse from killing. I think the mother in Part 3 makes a reference to her genitalia, saying she "cut it out."

    That's grisly stuff, and not very multiplex-friendly.

    The 2003 remake I think wisely amped up the fairytale elements -- the childhood fear of being devoured by monsters, the family of backwoods ogres, the girl saving the kidnapped baby, which had to be on the menu.

    What hurts a lot of modern-day movies like this is that the casts are too familiar, usually from TV. All I could think during the trailer was whether the daughter from Lost was doomed again.

    What I meant was - & I'm not alone on this - that YES the 2003 remake was violent, gory, etc -----

    Yet - it didn't unnerve me nor have "shots" that literally had me at end of my seat. In the original 1974 film - when Leatherface is chasing Sally there are some Great cinematography shots (funny cuz Daniel Pearl did both original & remake!) that were in NO way as intense as the original. Leatherface lumbering RIGHT behind her as she runs & screams towards the camera. They had Leatherface take of his mask & make audience "sympathize" with him having a deformed face/etc, some of the characters were too cookie-cutter "dead" teenagers, there was no ICONIC "Hitchhiker" kin of Leatherface (trust me Edwin Neal as the hitchhiker is fucking beyond weird & creepy in the original), no dinner scene, & most of all - no real great chase sequences w/ the heroine & ABOVE ALL she didn't jump through any friggin' windows for survival like in the original.

    The original, while older & less gory, was hands down fucking intense & scary. I like the remake, don't get me wrong, but its......blander in its execution. That's just my opinion, & I know many "Chainsaw Massacre" fans who feel the same way. So I know I'm not crazy icon_cool.gif

    Oh & the ending to the original is more "cringe-inducing" & white knuckled than the remake ending. The shots of Leatherface & Hitchhiker on her ass as she's running for the road all blood caked, & trying to jump into the back of that guy's little truck while Leatherface is literally mere inches from her swinging is saw. Oh & its more realistic........in real life no one has the "smarts" to go manipulate, save some random baby, fool the townsfolk whom are tied with the psycho family, fool the sherriff & kill him & ride off into the night.

    It was SO hollywood. The ending to the original was by far more realistic.

    I'm not saying the remake was bad in any way, I liked it - but for me it doesn't match the original's effectiveness in any way.

    Besides it kick-started that damn trend w/ every Michael Bay horror remake having the same effin' "sepia" tone/look & feel.

    Therefore, to me being a die hard old-school horror fan, & growing up with these films all my life since a child - the 2003 remake had a "Hollywood assembly line, cookie-cutter" quality to it. Therefore my "Hannah Montana" reference.

    But I do agree Jessica Biel did do a fantastic job in it (I just really wish she jumped through some windows to convey her survival instinct! hahahaha)

    & I did like the small subtle nods to the original.

    You're right on some of points. The original was scary because there was less music and the chase scenes were right on. However, I fail to see how this new version will be any good, not to mention they have some unknown rapper in there. That always ruins a horror movie. It seems like they're trying to attract more teeny boppers.
