The boringly named sequel to the original 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre is simply called Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D. The plot focuses on a young woman traveling to Texas, accompanied by friends, to reclaim an inheritance, which happens to include Leatherface. Filming began in July 2011 and the film was expected to hit theaters on October 5th, right in time for Halloween.
Unfortunately, according to ERC, the film’s release date has shifted. The film is now expected to hit theaters on January 4th, 2013, far from the usual horror film season. This new date gives Texas Chainsaw Massacre 3D a weekend all to itself, without any other large big-screen releases. The October 5th release date would have saw the film go against Taken 2 and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie.
