This Spring, Lionsgate Films is bringing Texas Chainsaw 3D to Blu-ray. The pulse-pounding horror film stars Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, Scott Eastwood and Dan Yeager, and continues the story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic left off. Texas Chainsaw 3D arrives on Blu-ray on April 30th.
Synopsis: In Newt, Texas, people have been going missing without a trace for decades. Years later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young girl named Heather (Daddario) discovers that she has inherited a sprawling Texas estate from an unknown grandmother. To claim her estate, Heather goes on a road trip with her friends to Newt, but soon learns that wealth comes at a price when she discovers the horror that waits in the cellar of her new mansion.
Texas Chainsaw 3D also stars Tremaine 'Trey Songz' Neverson (Grammy-nominated R&B star), Shaun Sipos (Final Destination 2), Keram Malicki-Sanchez (American History X), James MacDonald (Phone Booth), Thom Barry (Cold Case), Paul Rae (True Grit), Richard Riehle (Office Space) and four cast members from previous installments of the franchise: original Leatherface Gunnar Hansen, Marilyn Burns, John Dugan and Bill Moseley.

I can't remember being this disappointed by a film before (and I am fairly forgiving when it comes to slasher films). There's already a direct sequel to Chain Saw '74, and it's called The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 (which is a cult classic in it's own right).
At least the girl was hot(she needed little tan though)
Original actually gave me nightmares.(I was little too young and was not supposed to see it though )
This sequel was not scary at all. I just found it to be funny. So it at least has that entertaining value
"And the Votedown patrol is at it again. The unpopular opinion gets voted way down. Give me a fucking break!! if you don't like this movie, then don't read about it but why do you feel the need to votedown people who do?? Sigh."
If we weren't allowed to dislike your opinion, then why would there be a negative vote option in the first place? I'm getting tired of social media sites only offering a "like" button, what happened to people? Not enough fear in your life, that you now need to fear criticism and opposition?
People like you are the first to whine to the coach that your asthmatic bench warmer child didn't get a trophy.
On the plus side, check out those special features!
I haven't seen it yet but I know what to expect so my expectations are low.
I'll also buy this for the sake of completing my collection but I'm not doing it begrudgingly.
I'm happily buying it for the special features which will no doubt be considerably better than the movie
The mistake seems to be, that since the original took place in 1974, the main character of the story should be 38/39 years old, but they make her into a 20 something. She must have the best plastic surgeon out there.
@TheManInBlu - I agree with you also! They have nothing better to do but talk crap about movies to build up their ego cause they have no friends in the real world! LOLOLOL Yes I''m talking about you losers, go out and socialize with the outside world... nobody cares about your negative crap on the internet.
You know, I guess you'll have to be there when it was shown on the big screen way back when, but for me to pay $28 bucks for it on blu ray is a deal breaker. I'll give up $15 bucks or so for it, but not $28... don't care how good the 3D is.
Come on venders... drop the price on this so that guys can afford to take their wives out for dinner!
