Spoiler-Free Synopsis Lead In
Twenty years ago the town of Newt, Texas, exacted vengeance on the Sawyer family for their role in assisting and concealing murders committed by the chainsaw-wielding maniac Jeb Sawyer, aka “Leatherface”. The entire family was presumed killed when Burt Hartman led the townspeople to burn down their farmhouse, but the Sawyer infant survived and was secretly taken away by two of the vigilante townies, Gavin and Arlene, and raised as their daughter, Heather. It’s not until she’s in her twenties that Heather learns that she’s adopted. A lawyer for her grandmother tracks her down with word she’s been left an inheritance. Angry at her parents for lying to her, she sets out for Texas on a road trip with her boyfriend, Ryan; friends Nikki and Kenny; and Darryl, a hitchhiker they pick up on the way.

    But Hooper gave us a sequel to his original and TCM 2 was awesome. Sighs.

    Why the teen pop star power? The only ones who will understand this movie are horror fans. I hope this is not another Halloween: Ressurection.

    Quite excited about this; though would like a trailer.

    Its about damm time. I was beginning to think that it doesnt exsist anymore. They have really kept a lid on this movie. No pics, video footage, nothing. Just a set pic of Dan Yaeger (Leatherface) not in costume obviously. Im a huge Leatherface fan and the original TCM (1974) is My favorite movie of all time. Its really exciting to Me that this is a direct sequal to the original. Dont get Me wrong. TCM 2 and 3 were good as well as the remake and the prequal. But nothing beats the first one. I cant wait till January, unless it gets pushed again.
