1st Leatherface-filled poster for Texas Chainsaw 3D

Run for your lives! Leatherface is back. Lionsgate has released the first poster for the upcoming Texas Chainsaw 3D. The film returns to the deadly stomping ground of Newt, Texas, and expands on the iconic killer's twisted family.

Texas Chainsaw 3D will center on a young woman named Heather who discovers a dark family secret. Everyone has crazy relatives, but hers are on a whole other level. The film follows in the footsteps of Tobe Hooper's 1974 horror classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking on a road trip with friends to uncover her roots, she finds she is the sole owner of a lavish, isolated Victorian mansion. But her newfound wealth comes at a price as she stumbles upon a horror that awaits her in the mansion's dank cellars...

Texas Chainsaw 3D stars Alexandra Daddario (Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief), Tania Raymonde (Lost), Scott Eastwood (Invictus) and singer-turned-actor Trey Songz. You can also expect original stars like John Dugan, who reprises his role as Grandfather.

The film opens in theaters Jan. 4.
