The Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboots and or remakes have been one of the best attempts at modernizing a classic horror franchise. Not only did it do well but in my opinion it has exceeded my expectations each time. The new prequel film set to hit theaters later this year seems to continue the linage of quality film making within this modern franchise.
We get our much anticipated first look with a teaser debut that didn’t disappoint. Just enough intrigue in the trailer to see how the massacre begins and with each stitch in the mask made of skin a legend is reborn. Check out the trailer below along with a synopsis.
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.
