‘Texas Chainsaw 3D,’ which was written by Adam Adam Marcus, Debra Sullivan and Kirsten Elms, and directed by John Lussenbop, continues the legendary story of the homicidal Sawyer family, picking up where the original 1974 original film left off in Newt, Texas. The townspeople’s suspicions that the family were responsible for the disappearances of countless people proved true when a young woman escaped the sawyer house after the brutal murders of her four friends. The townspeople killed the family, or so they thought, when they burned the house down.
Decades later, a young woman, Heather Miller (played by Alexandra Daddario), learns that she inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew. She travels to the mansion with her friends, only to discover a horror that’s waiting for her in the cellars.
