There’s a trailer floating around Facebook this morning that claims to be from the upcoming Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, Leatherface, currently sitting somewhere on a shelf at Lionsgate. It certainly looks legit—but don’t believe it! It’s actually a trailer for the British flick Escape from Cannibal Farm. Part of the confusion clearly stems from the fact that Escape is a blatant Chainsaw Massacre rip off! Anyway, have a look at the trailer below so you won’t be fooled!
Official Synopsis: In the British countryside, the Harver family head out on an idyllic summer camping trip where they can bury past tensions and enjoy some family bonding. But when their camp is sabotaged by an unseen intruder in the night, they head to the nearby creepy old farm desperate for help, where vengeful farmer Hunt Hansen and his hideously deformed son aren’t farming animals… Caged and waiting for their limbs to be severed, cooked and eaten one at a time, the Harver family must overcome their differences and unite in order to escape alive!
Escape from Cannibal Farm is written and directed by Charlie Steeds and stars Kate Marie Davies, Barrington De La Roche, and David Lenik.
As for the actual Leatherface, you can read about the status of that film in a recent article I wrote, HERE.
