“HOW WE MADE THE WOLD’S MOST NOTORIOUS HORROR MOVIE”

Aside from playing Leatherface, one of the most iconic horror icons of all time, in one of the most iconic horror films of all time, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, Gunnar Hansen is actually an established author. His most recent book, CHAIN SAW CONFIDENTIAL, offers an insider’s behind-the-scenes view into the making of the horror classic.

From Fangoria:

Chronicle Books posted the video preview for CHAIN SAW CONFIDENTIAL, featuring on-camera words from Hansen about the book, which comes out October 1 (retail price: $24.95). In its pages, Hansen, his co-stars and crew from Tobe Hooper’s classic recall the terrors and triumphs of the low-budget shoot in revelatory and sometimes hilarious detail, and also explore the movie’s lasting legacy, fan reaction and classic status. Hansen will be promoting the book at personal appearances and conventions across the U.S. between now and the end of September.

NEW PHOTOS FROM TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, INCLUDING THE INTERNATIONAL POSTER!

If you didn’t get enough TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D for your New Years present, Lionsgate has released a slew of new photos from the film (some taken from Entertainment Weekly). Check ’em out after the break!

The film is being directed by John Luessenhop from a screenplay by Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms. Dan Yeager, John Dugan, Bill Moseley, Alexandra Daddario, Sue Rock, Tania Raymonde, Scott Eastwood, Gunnar Hansen, Tobe Hooper, Paul Rae, Keram Malicki-Sánchez, Ritchie Montgomery, Trey Songz, Marilyn Burns, Shaun Sipos, Thom Barry and Richard Riehle star. It’s been rated “R” by the MPAA for “strong, grisly violence and language throughout.

The film hits theaters on January 4th, 2013.

SYNOPSIS:

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…

NEW OFFICIAL POSTER FOR TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3D

A few days ago we reported that, obviously, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3D had received an ‘R’ rating from the MPAA. Now we have, as you can see from the teaser above, the official poster for the film. It looks like they’ve apparently decided to title it TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D, dropping the “THE” and “MASSACRE” for some reason. The “THE” I can understand, but everyone loves a good “MASSACRE.”

It’s not until she’s in her twenties that Heather learns that she’s adopted.

A lawyer for her grandmother tracks her down with word she’s been left an inheritance. Angry at her parents for lying to her, she sets out for Texas on a road trip with her boyfriend Ryan, friends Nikki and Kenny, and Darryl, a hitchhiker they pick up on the way.”
