One month remains until we get to see the brand new Leatherface movie. A prequel to Tobe Hooper’s original classic as we go back to the very beginning and find out just who the man is behind the mask.
A new trailer has emerged today showing all new footage and much less gore than the previous red band trailer. This toned down green band trailer dwells into the plot of the movie and gives us a better idea of what to expect.
I quite like the flow of the trailer, its staying true to the structure of the old movies. I just pray it doesn’t attempt something new, original and daring and falls flat on it’s fully revved chainsaw face first.
“In Texas, years before the events of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, in the early days of the infamous Sawyer family, the youngest child is sentenced to a mental hospital after a suspicious incident leaves the sheriffs’ daughter dead. Ten years later, he kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with 3 other inmates. Pursued by authorities including the deranged sheriff out to avenge his daughter’s death, the young Sawyer teen goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster known now as Leatherface.”
The movie will get an exclusive DirecTV release on September 21, 2017, with a full VOD release through Lionsgate revved up for October 20, 2017.
