MORE NEWS ON TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D

Source: Horror-Movies.ca

Ok, so, the good news is that Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D doesn’t appear to be a remake/re-imagining/crap-o-la of any of the TCM flicks. Instead it appears to be a direct sequel to the original. This from the fiends over at Horror-Movies.ca:

Speaking briefly with Shock, Tania Raymonde divulged into some aspects of the new film and the character that she plays (Nikki).

“This movie takes off where the original started and stands on its own as a thriller and origin story. There’s something epic and scary about it as it delves into this disturbed mind that is not right.”

“There are a lot of unorthodox things about this movie that are original and new. I don’t think people are going to be disappointed.”

Tania also mentions that her character who is the best friend of “Heather” played by Alexandra Daddario has a lot of balls and basically kicks ass in the film and isn’t the usual slutty best friend.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D is being helmed by John Luessenhop and also stars Paul Rae, Keram Malicki-Sánchez, Ritchie Montgomery, Bill Moseley, Scott Eastwood, Tobe Hooper, Gunnar Hansen and Sue Rock.

The film follows Heather, who along with her friends, travel to Texas in order to collect an inheritance. The spin? What would you do if you found out your cousin was Leatherface, and he was now YOURS?

Tobe hooper is going to be… acting? Interesting. Can’t wait to check it out!

TCM 2’s LOU PERRYMAN MURDERED?

From Bloody Good Horror:

Sad news today that veteran actor Lou Perryman passed away on April 1st.

Known as a long time collaborator with Tobe Hooper, Perryman was best known as L.G. from “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2” as well as behind the camera work on many films such as “Poltergeist”, “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, “The Blues Brothers”, “Boys Don’t Cry” and many others. Perryman has been a long time resident of South Austin, Texas.

To make the situation even more grave, Austin local news has brought forth new information that Perryman may in fact have been a victim of foul play.

A South Austin neighborhood is on edge after police discover a body inside a small home. Now a man is behind bars in connection with that murder, after he reportedly showed up at the Travis County Justice complex with information that led police to the crime scene.

The story does not identify Perlman as the victim, but his daughter has already taken to her Facebook page announcing her father’s death, as well as confirmed to the horror site linked above that her father was the victim in the above mentioned story. Nothing is official at this point and no charges have been filed, but all signs are starting to point in the same direction.

You have got to be fucking shitting me.  Really?  What the FUCK kind of world do we live in where some piece of motherfucking shit goes and kills L.G.?  MOTHER FUCK!!!  It’s a good thing it’s Texas because I want that fucker to fucking FRY!  Torture the fucker first.  What the fuck, man.  This is just…it’s too fucking much.

You’ll be missed, man.
