As Dillon Panthers fullback Tim Riggins always said: “Texas Chainsaw forever.” Wait…what?
The gritty, Southern-set horror franchise returns to theaters this weekend with “Texas Chainsaw 3D,” which picks up immediately after the events of the 1974 Tobe Hooper-directed original. MTV News rubbed elbows with Leatherface himself to visit the Shreveport, Louisiana, set last year, where we asked stars Alexandra Daddario (at her bloody best) and singer Trey Songz to spill which horror flicks scare them sh–less.
“’Silence of the Lambs,’ ’The Shining,'” Daddario replied. “When I was a kid, the first time I saw ’The Shining,’ I was completely freaked out, but it’s such an amazing movie, and the performances are just incredible and so over-the-top at points that it’s amazing.”
While Daddario favored retro classics, Songz opted for something a little more contemporary.
“The series that I will say restored my faith in horror movies [is] ’Saw,'” he said. “Successful horror movies that had a great story line.” Something, Songz promised, fans will also find in his slasher flick.
“The re-branding of the ’Texas Chainsaw Massacre,’ especially in 3D, is going to be phenomenal,” he enthused.
“Texas Chainsaw 3D” is in theaters now.
