The Texas Chainsaw Massacre helmer Tobe Hooper has, apparently, seen Texas Chainsaw 3D and provided Lionsgate a quote to run with for their advertising campaign. Hooper’s thoughts?
“Incredible! A perfectly terrifying follow-up to the original,” says Hooper. And in anticipation of the film’s January 4th release date, the studio has released a new 60-second TV spot. With that said, Lionsgate is going to be making each Thursday leading up to the release an event. Read on for the details.
