This Friday, the festive squeals of delighted children and the electrical hum of holiday lights will be replaced by the screams of tormented twentysomethings and the grinding of mechanical wood-slicing devices when horror sequel Texas Chainsaw 3D hits cinemas. A direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s infamous 1974 shocker The Texas Chainsaw Massacre this seventh entry in the franchise is directed by John Luessenhop (Takers) and stars Alexandra Daddario, Trey Songz, Scott Eastwood, and Dan Yeager as the iconic Leatherface.

In the new issue of EW you can read about the ways Luessenhop and crew have paid homage to Hooper’s horror classic but, as a (barbecue-flavored) taster, you can check out two exclusive photos of Yeager in full, chainsaw-wielding mode below.
