WATCH: Texas Chainsaw 3D gets new trailer

September 14th, 2012 by Marc Comments

There are many, many movies that withstand the test of time and, no matter how much someone tries to tinker, will always stand alone.

One such movie is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. A movie the will rock you to the core. Not, as is often the case today, with gratuitous gore or violence, but with an unrelenting sense of terror, claustrophobia and helplessness.

It stands to this day as one of the greatest horror movies ever made. A movie which, ironically, apes and is the perfect antidode to the modern horror – sexy teens running around in music video camera angles, looking terrified but never less than, well, sexy. It was raw, brutal and unforgiving.

Needless to say, it suffered at the hands of marketing, with awful sequels and an interesting, but ultimately fruitless, reboot.

Well, in a bizarre move, it’s getting a sequel. Yes, Texas Chainsaw 3D is ignoring the sequels and reboots and is going right back to the start. Only, it’s not. It’s sexy teens running in lovely framed scenes from what will obviously be inevitable gory deaths. Oh, what would Tobe Hooper say…?

Of course we could be wrong. But I doubt it. Check out this trailer and let us know what you think…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
