The legend of Leatherface lives on in new year's first major release, "Texas Chainsaw 3D," which is meant to be the first direct sequel to 1974's "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre."
Sneak peeks start at 10 p.m. Thursday , while Tobe Hooper presents a double feature as part of the Alamo Drafthouse on South Lamar's closing night festivities.
