Cast: Alexandra Daddario, Tania Raymonde, Scott Eastwood, Trey Songz

Plot: A young woman takes her friends on a trip to claim her inheritance, a beautiful mansion in the state of Texas. Unknown to her and her friends, a deranged killer is lurking in the halls waiting to put a terrible end to their fun road trip.

Right now there are dramatic musicals, Oscar worthy performances, and family friendly films all waiting to entertain moviegoers this weekend. However, laughs are going to be the last thing on patrons minds as they line up to see the latest installment of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. People are over the happy go lucky feeling of the holidays and are ready for a good scare.

Perhaps there will be many people who feel the franchise is overrated and overdone, but there are still those who are willing to pay that $9 at the box office to watch the gore and horror that is Leatherface’s trademark. From the trailer alone we can tell that this is going to be a blood-fest.

This time, the story centers around a young woman, Alexandra Daddario, best know for her role in the Percy Jackson and the Olympians film, who brings along her friends to collect her inheritance. Daddario is accompanied by Trey Songz, yes, the rapper, Scott Eastwood, son of Mr. Clint Eastwood, and Tania Raymonde, known for her roles in TV shows such as Lost and Switched at Birth. The group, like all unsuspecting victims of Leatherface, is slow to realize they are doomed as soon as they start their journey.

What is it about a chainsaw wielding psycho that gets movies goers in the theater every time? And whether or not you are one of those people who are thinking “another one?” or “it’s in 3D this time?” or “can’t they come up with anything original?’, you know you’ll be one of the first in line to see it. This is because there is something about Leatherface that makes us want to face him down in the theater. Perhaps we are trying to prove to ourselves that we really aren’t afraid. Whatever our excuse is, Texas Chainsaw 3D will have packed out theaters all across America come January 4th.
