We've been hearing updates on THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE 3D for a while now, yet we have been almost wholly in the dark about what the plot would actually be. We knew that the film was likely to take place partially in modern day, but it seems that they have come to some decisions about the plot.

Readers beware, the content below could be considered spoilery, although it is mainly just information about the plot. I can say however, they seem to be going in a very different direction for this one.

It seems that for this incarnation of the franchise, they are looking to change up the formula quite a bit. Instead of making the regular horror affair, they want to add some mystery into the bag. In the new film, the police and townspeople are summoned to bring Leatherface in for his crimes, so that he can be given a fair trial thanks to Sheriff Hooper. However, the angry mob ends up burning down his house and all of its inhabitants.

The main character, Heather,then  discovers that she is a relative of Leatherface, and new murders start occurring. As Heather discovers this news, Hooper is on the hunt to figure out who the murderer is. Did Leatherface survive somehow or is there an impostor in their midst?

The mystery aspect is a really interesting angle for the film, a good way to mix things up a bit. However, it seems as though we might get a little less Leatherface than expected. However, there are sure to be scenes in the film just as gory and horrifying as you could expect from a CHAINSAW MASSACRE film. Being that the film is supposed to serve as a sequel to the original film, it might give us some really great insight to the 1974 classic.

Do you guys like the new direction of the franchise, or would you rather them follow the formula we all know works?
