Sporting a new, streamlined title, the gorefest formerly known as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will hit theaters in full near-NC-17 glory as Texas Chainsaw 3D (after all, “massacre” was really kinda redundant). Though the pull cord won’t fire until the New Year, fans can get into the holiday spirit now with a sneak peek via the new clip below.
Here we meet our doomed pair apparently rudely interrupted from shenanigans in the barn, as our latest assailant pays a visit from the requisite neighboring graveyard. No doubt unfortunately for them, panic takes over and undoes the near-point-blank shot, prompting an equally ill-conceived, “Back up!” command (have we learned nothing from Prometheus?). And that’s just for starters.
But hey, what fun would it be if all our subjects had the iron cool of Master Chief John James Urgayle (Viggo’s done mighty well for himself since 1990)? Genre fans won’t be seeing Texas Chainsaw 3D for its characters’ critical thinking skills, and from this clip all required elements abound. The fact that my first thought was, “Hey, that dirt floor will absorb nicely and discourage excessive spatter” probably bodes nicely for the proceedings.
Texas Chainsaw 3D is currently slated for a January 2013
