Texas Chainsaw 3D

Jay Creepy here, with a brief rundown of the new "Texas Chainsaw Massacre" which is coming out January time 2013 in 3D.  Apart from the remake and the prequel, the last time we had an official "TCM" entry was back in 1994 with "The Next Generation."  Kim Henkel is on the writing team but only for the characters which means hardly any input I guess.

This version has managed to pull back such old friends like Gunnar Hanson as Leatherface in flashback scenes only (does this mean the film is going to act like a direct sequel to the original? It seems so due to plotlines. Soon after the events of part 1 the locals burnt the Sawyer family’s home to the ground after one girl escaped and told everyone).  Marilyn (Sally) Burns has what will probably be a cameo as Verna Carson, and the weirdest is Bill (Choptop) Moseley playing Drayton Sawyer which was of course played with great scenery chewing by Jim Siedow in part one and two.  Jim passed away in 2003 so having Bill playing the character is going to a jolt like when he played  Mayor Buckman in the second "2001 Maniacs."  What is also cool is that John Dugan is reprising his role as grandfather which is nice.  He did a brief appearance in "Next Gen" as a cop.

The plot is on IMDb as follows: “A young woman travels to Texas to collect an inheritance; little does she know that an encounter with a chainsaw-yielding killer is part of the reward,” whilst goes into a lot more details.  Look around for a few stills and teaser trailers around and about too.

The big question shouldn’t really be who’s returning, it should be who else is who?  Well, Alexandra Daddario who’s been in "Percy Jackson" and a few other things takes the lead role, joined by Clint Eastwood’s son Scott as the local law enforcer.  Another name of note is Richard Riehle, a workhorse who’s career has spanned decades playing small roles.  He’s got a recognisable face though from Rob’s "Halloween 2," "Glory," "Hatchet," "Of Mice & Men," "Lethal Weapon 4," and too many more to list.

Let’s turn our attention to the new Leatherface.  He’s played by a relative unknown called Dan Yeager who played a cop in "Metal Heads."  He does have the right build and let’s think about it, Gunnar Hansen was an unknown actor in 1974.  In fact R.A. Mihailoff and Bill Johnson weren’t very big names at the times of their donning the mask.  It remains to be seen if Dan can do it and isn’t a watered down version.  We don’t need sensitivity or a background or a proper name for Leatherface, we just need a grunting hulking killer!
