Watch a New Clip from 'Texas Chainsaw 3D'

Texas Chainsaw 3D

A man, a plan, a chainsaw: That's all you'll need on January 4, 2013, when one of the most persistent horror franchises in history goes 3D.

We're talking, of course, about Texas Chainsaw 3D -- and although the title tells you pretty much everything you need to know about the movie, Lionsgate has done the charitable thing and released a new one-minute clip to give us a rip-roaring teaser for the main attraction.

It's pretty standard fare -- hot, partly undressed kids in a barn, being menaced by a homicidal maniac and demonstrating remarkable stupidity in the fight for their lives -- but after a decade and change of torture porn and found footage, it's almost comforting to see a horror flick taking the good old-fashioned teen exploitation route. From the studio's official synopsis:

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.

Check out the full clip embedded below, and plan your January cineplex excursions accordingly.
