Synopsis
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…

You're such an inspiration for the ways that I will never, ever choose to be.

    Well the final tally is in with $23million at the box office; not too shabby for a January film. Since a film generally has to double/triple it’s budget (to account for prints/advertising) to turn profit the film has entered the black. Though not a big margin.

    But with Gangster Squad, Zero Dark Thirty and others hitting next week; the audience is probably going to dry up pretty quick. Probably have to wait for the foreign numbers to see if Lionsgate will wait until home media sales before judging if they want to bankroll another film.

    It’s hilarious how you guys and most every critic slammed the movie and yet it still flourishes; just tells us not to fully listen/take to heart what we hear and read about movies and whatnot; everybodies opinion is their own. I for one am completely thrilled that they’re taking this franchise into a new and better direction than anybody else who has tried to tackle it since Hooper himself. I anxiously await for the sequel.

      Remember how the last Friday the 13th movie opened to nearly $50 million and then tanked so hard after its opening weekend that there has yet to be another sequel? Don’t get too excited just yet.

      • Masked Slasher

        The only difference being that the rights are so fucked up with FRIDAY that it’s probably not worth it for the studios to untangle that garbage for such a marginal profit.

        But with TCM, LG clearly has the rights. And if this sucker really only cost $8 million to make like they’re reporting … well, I bet Leatherface will be back soon.

        • Foywonder

          If Lionsgate bought the rights to make upwards of 7 TCM movies something tells me if this movie had only made fifty bucks at the box office we’d still be getting more remakes and reboots, regardless.

      I think it tells us something different, that people DON’T listen to critics on things like this no matter how bad the reviews are. The fact that the movie had a big weekend doesn’t mean that it’s good.
