It’s going to be a real cut up once again in Texas when Leatherface returns to the silver screen in the all new Texas Chainsaw Massacre film.
Taking a cue from the Halloween franchise, the upcoming slasher is a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original horror classic. Take a look at two exclusive images from the film below courtesy of Entertainment Weekly:
Director Fede Alvarez (The 2013 Evil Dead Reboot) and his writing partner Rodo Sayagues will try to repeat that trick with another famously terrifying franchise. Audiences can decide whether the pair have succeeded on Feb. 18 when Netflix premieres Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a sequel to filmmaker Tobe Hooper’s 1974 horror classic, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, about a pack of hippies being picked off by a family of cannibals in the wilds of the Lone Star State.
“Me and Rodo really wanted to make sure we don’t disappoint the fans, and we are [among them]. So it’s pretty hardcore. But at the same time it has the simplicity of that first film. We wanted to come up with a very simple premise [with] a powerful domino effect. Everything is set up in the right place — all you have to do is push the first domino and everything will happen effortlessly.”
If this new iteration of TCM is anything like Alvarez’s Evil Dead reboot fans can expect a truly horrific and gory experience!
