Lionsgate have unveiled brand new pics from the eagerly awaited TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D ahead of the film's January debut. We've got high hopes that the movie will return the franchise to the glory day of the original and the anarchy of its much-derided sequel, so much so we urge you to check out Starburst Issue 384, our TCM special, on sale from this Friday! In the meantime, check out the pics below...

Lionsgate’s 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…
TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D hits UK cinemas January 9th (with advance screenings on the 4th & 5th).
