A horror icon has recently been reborn in John Luessenhop’s grisly follow-up, TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D. The film is a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s malevolent and masterful 1974 flick, THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, picking up hours after the genre classic before a modern setting takes us on a journey of more mayhem with the chainsaw-wielding maniac, Leatherface (Read our review HERE).

TEXAS CHAINSAW 3D has certainly been a surprise at the box-office, taking over $20 million in it’s first weekend alone on a budget of $8 million. However, it’s second week saw the film take a steep drop from the No. 1 spot, all the way to No. 8. Still, the film is well in profit and a sequel is expected early next year.

Craig was our great north east correspondent, proving that it’s so ‘grim up north’ that losing yourself in a world of film is a foregone prerequisite. He has been studying the best (and often worst) of both classic and modern cinema at the University of Life for as long as he can remember. Craig’s favorite films include THE SHAWSHANK REDEMPTION, JFK, GOODFELLAS, SCARFACE, and most of John Carpenter’s early work, particularly THE THING and HALLOWEEN.
