Witness the origin of an iconic killer in the new trailer for Leatherface

7 days ago

Grab an apron, a butcher's mallet, a chainsaw, and your favorite mask made out of human flesh, because LEATHERFACE is back, again! For the newest chapter of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE saga, French filmmaking duo Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will be taking us back to where it all began, and explaining away the origin of one of horror's most legendary killers.

Here's a look at the new trailer: 

As you might have already guessed, LEATHERFACE will serve as a prequel to the 1974 original directed by Toby Hooper. With a script written by Seth M. Sherwood, stars Stephen Dorff, Vanessa Grasse, Sam Strike, and Lily Taylor will each play a part in the events that helped shape the deranged and handicapped psychopath. As previously reported, principal photography has taken place back in May and June of 2015, with an exclusive release via DirecTV scheduled for September 21, 2017. Following the DirecTV debut will be a theatrical presentation which is scheduled for an October 20th release.

So, what do you think? Personally, I'm not really in the business of having my villains extensively explored and explained. Sometimes, it works out for the better, and we're given a new angle to the lore that helps the story to become larger than it already is. Other times though, revealing too much about a villain's motivations or upbringing can almost ruin the mystique and crippled functioning of their black hearts. Here's hoping that LEATHERFACE is something that casual fans of the character can enjoy, and perhaps even more for those who adore the chainsaw-wielding farm boy with a face that only a mother could love.

LEATHERFACE will make its debut on DirecTV beginning on September 21, 2017, and in theaters on October 20th.

Extra Tidbit: I wonder if Leatherface will go to space when the franchise hits its 10th installment?

Meh...the only Chainsaw reboot/remake/sequel worth anything was the 2003 version. Everything else has been garbage. Should probably leave well-enough alone at this point.

I can imagine some studio exec is thinking about a Freddy Krueger prequel where we witness him working at the school. Some icons need no origin. They were successful without a backstory.

Sadly there is one...sort of. They shot a origin story as to how the zombie got the grave site and tagged in front of a cut that was released by Anchor Bay about 15 years ago.

Horrendous!

Man this movie looks worse than Texas Chainsaw 3D! Maybe they will surprise me and actually have a timeline that makes sense unlike 3D did (supposed to be a direct sequel after the events of the first movie and she only aged about 20 years from her being a baby but it jumped to like 2013?). How hard is it to make a Leatherface, Jason, Michael, or Freddy movie that doesn't suck?

Hmmm

Pleasantly surprised by this trailer and Inside was a pretty fucked up movie so I'm curious how this turns out.

This is more of the same origin crap they've been feeding us for a while now.

I feel like the mystique of Leatherface is that he was a faceless, silent, brutal monster. Explaining a monster doesn't make it more scary or more interesting.

Sigh

While I could watch Chainsaw movies all the time, this is just the same, same, same , same, same thing we've seen since 2003.

Stupidity. This is one of those movies that will make the bulk of it's money the first weekend, then disappear.Gore does not make for a good horror movie.

I like that concept sketch of him chilin' on the porch but damn, why do we need an origin for him? Some nice moments in the trailer, but I wish it wasn't related to the TCM.
