Successful horror films like SAW, Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre find a way to keep their franchises alive. Sequels, prequels, spin-offs, and reboots, anything you can think of, it’s been done to your favorite horror franchise. The new Texas Chainsaw 3D film that hits theaters early next year will be just another example of a franchise that just refuses to die, no matter how many times the killers die and the body count stacks.
Texas Chainsaw 3D will follow the events of the original film that was released in 1974. A young woman inherits a home, so she decides to take her friends along to see what exactly she got. Little does she know that the house is connected to the notorious family involved in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. If anything, the trailer shows why it’s dangerous to get high.

The John Lussenhop-directed film stars Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, Dan Yeager, and Scott Eastwood. Texas Chainsaw 3D opens on January 4, 2013.
Here’s the synopsis for the film.
Lionsgate’s 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…
