The fact that Leatherface, a prequel to the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, sat on a shelf for so many months had many horror fans hypothesizing that the film is none too good. Still, fans of 1980s era horror and iconic slashers held hope that Leatherface would save horror in 2017—especially after Paramount abruptly canceled a Friday the 13th reboot earlier this year. Well, we just got our first trailer for Leatherface, and it looks better than anyone expected! Have a look:
Official Synopsis: Prequel about teenage Leatherface who escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface.
Leatherface is directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury from a script penned by Seth M. Sherwood. The film stars Stephen Dorff, Lili Taylor, and Nicole Andrews.
