It would certainly seem that 2017 is the year of horror. I mean, we do have a Friday the 13th this year in October of all months!
Lionsgate and Millennium Films have just released a teaser poster for Leatherface, which will serve as a prequel to the Texas Chainsaw Massacre:
Years before the events of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the youngest child of the Sawyer family 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.
Leatherface will be the eighth installment in the franchise. The film is directed by Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo.
Leatherface will be released on Direct TV on September 21, with a limited theatrical run and VOD release following on October 20.
