Last month, we reported that the hotly anticipated Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, Leatherface, would arrive in theaters this October. We can now confirm that we were correct—but also kind of wrong. Leatherface will have a limited theatrical release coinciding with a VOD release on October 20th. Those who subscribe to DirecTV, however, will be able to stream Leatherface beginning on September 21st!
We still don’t have a trailer, but Bloody Disgusting shared a couple new pics that are bloody as hell! Have a look, along with the previously released synopsis & images below.
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.
