Lionsgate have released a new image of horror icon Leatherface as they crank up the promotional heat ahead of the release of Texas Chainsaw 3D in January.

Set to pick up where Tobe Hooper’s original classic left off way back in 1974, the flick promises more mayhem from the Sawyer family.

Dan Yeager stars as the chainsaw-wielding maniac this time round, but original Leatherface Gunnar Hansen is set for a cameo, along with fellow former ‘Texas’ stars Marilyn Burns, Bill Moseley and John Dugan.

The film hits cinemas on January 9, with previews set for January 4 & 5.
