Does the lack of the word “Massacre” in the freshly truncated title of Texas Chainsaw 3D indicate that this sequel to Tobe Hooper’s classic 1974 horror film The Texas Chainsaw Massacre will find Leatherface settling his problems through the power of rhetoric? Apparently not, judging by the movie’s first trailer which features mechanical woodcutting device-related mayhem aplenty.

Directed by John Luessenhop (Takers) and set for release on January 4, TC3D stars Dan Yeager as the axe-snubbing Leatherface and Alexandra Daddario as a woman who inherits a mansion with dank cellars. Are those cellars filled with vintage wine and aged cheeses? Again, judging by the trailer, it seems not.

You can watch the clip below. Take a look and tell us what you think.
