Update: Texas Chainsaw 3D gets greenlit for a sequel

Update: Looks like according to the rights holders. This isn't to say it will never happen, but that those saying it would really had no right to. After pulling in over 23 million dollars since it came out, it's no surp...

Review: Texas Chainsaw 3D

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has certainly had its ups and downs. The original film shocked a nation with its brutality when it exploded onto the scene in 1974, but the three that followed were a lot more goofy than scary, what with Leatherface dueling Dennis Hopper in a chainsaw sword fight to the death and Matthew Mcconaughey's crazy eyes and his cyborg leg.

LOST's Tania Raymonde set to get chainsawed

Like it or not, they're making a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie. Not much was known about the flick when we first reported on it, other than the completely unsurprising revelation that it would be filmed for 3D. Thanks to ...

Yet another Texas Chainsaw Massacre coming - in 3D this time

Freddy, Jason, Mike Myers. These are slashed film characters that warranted a sequel to their film. Maybe not as many as they got, but multiple films were at least excusable. Leatherface on the other hand shouldn't have gone...
