The Leatherface trailer takes us to a time before the Texas Chain Saw Massacre


Leatherface is the prequel to Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chain Saw Massacre

Jessica Madsen plays one of four inmates (Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor) who escapes from a mental hospital. They kidnap a young nurse (played by Vanessa Grasse) and take her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman (Stephen Dorff) out for revenge. The Conjuring‘s Lili Taylor is Verna Sawyer.

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

Leatherface was directed by Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the duo behind Inside (À l’intérieur), as well as Livide and Among the Living.

The first Red Band trailer has been released and you can watch it below. I am curious to see it, but not sure whether it is a good idea to show how Leatherface came to be. Sometimes it can take from what made the original character so disturbing.

Thanks to Bloody Disgusting for sharing.

Watch the trailer below and share your thoughts in the comments.
