With the soothing strains of Mark Lanegan's "The Beast In Me" playing, the trailer for "Texas Chainsaw 3D" opens with a young woman in sexy lingerie just casually changing her clothes in the backseat of a van. Well, you gotta hand it to the marketing gurus at Millenium Entertainment -- they sure know who to grab the eyeballs of anyone who couldn't care less about another entry into this franchise.

As for the rest? It's your boilerplate, half-baked sequel, side-quel whatever who cares. Alexandra Daddario is the Jessica Biel of this one, playing Heather who goes to Texas to collect an inheritance from her grandma. But instead of a sleazy lawyer gouging her, it's a chainsaw-wielding nutjob. Blood and body parts presumably go flying.

A bunch of random people we don't recognize round out the cast, with “Takers” helmer John Luessenhop directing. In other words, this was made on a very small budget. "Texas Chainsaw 3D" opens on January 4th.

    Kevin's got it wrong. Lions Gate is doing a great job on this. The producer brought back the original cast from the 1974 version, and yes, this one is a follow up to the original. The producer wanted to stay with the original fever that Toby Hooper had on the 74' version. I think a great many "nay sayers" will be quite surprised when this is released.

    Alexandra Daddario will sell me every time.

    I never could relate to the blood and gore of Chainsaw Murders movies.

    Lol well I love them. And this movie does NOT look bad. It looks effin amazing. I mean of course it doesn't compare to the 1974 movie, but really did TCM 2,3,4 good movies? No, they sucked testicles. And the remake and its prequel were OK. But really, this movie looks like it could make itself to be the 2nd best in the Leatherface franchise.

    Looks like it has been a sexless month for the editors at Indiewire; major haters of late.
    P.S. Lionsgate did the marketing, not Millennium... and it's bad ass.

    The one with Jessica Biel was actually rather decent. But this looks like a mess - and no where in the trailer do they say, "Hey, this is a sequel to the original movie. Not the remake." Like anyone who care, anyway. This franchise is a jumbled mess.

    Alright I'm with you on this one this looks really lame. Surprisingly enough they didn't use the "flashlight sound" reference.
