It truly seems like we’ve been waiting a million years for the official Leatherface trailer to drop and finally our anxieties can settle down as the wait is finally over!
While indeed, there’s been several TCM movies since Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic be it sequels, The Beginning, or the bastard child The Next Generation, the upcoming Leatherface prequel dives into the madness that propelled Leatherface to his psychotic status; and holy hell guys the trailer looks incredible and something this franchise really needs to truly live and breathe again!
Released exclusively through Bloody Disgusting, behold the violently glorious Red Band Leatherface trailer!
Leatherface is directed by the dynamic horror duo of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside –À l’intérieur, Among the Living) and is set for a special DirectTV release on September 21, 2017 with a limited theatrical run and VOD release on October 20, 2017.
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.
