New Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie trailer buzzes its way in

Last Updated on December 7, 2021

A few days ago, the Netflix streaming service released (via Entertainment Weekly) the first two images from the new Texas Chainsaw movie, which was directed by David Blue Garcia and produced by Fede Alvarez. The movie will be released through Netflix on February 18th, and two months out from that release date a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie trailer has now arrived online and can be seen in the embed above.

This teaser doesn’t show much, but it does give us a glimpse of “old man Leatherface”, played by Mark Burnham, and shows potential victims in peril. It also reveals that, in addition to being producers on the project, Alvarez and his Don’t Breathe / Don’t Breathe 2 / Evil Dead 2013 collaborator Rodo Sayagues also receive “story by” credits on the film. Chris Thomas Devlin wrote the screenplay.

This Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a “decades later” sequel to the original film (watch that one HERE). Elsie Fisher, Sarah Yarkin, Nell Hudson, and Jacob Latimore star as

a group of friends who make the mistake of traveling too far away from the big city.

As Yarkin told EW,

Me and my business partner Dante [played by Latimore] are these young hip people that come to this ghost town in Texas and try to get other people to come there and make it the next hip place to be. Our fatal flaw is that we ignore the history that came before us.”

Also in the cast are Moe Dunford, Jessica Allain, Sam Douglas, William Hope, Jolyon Coy, and Alice Krige, with Olwen Fouéré as Sally Hardesty.

Just like the 2017 Leatherface, this Texas Chainsaw Massacre was filmed in Bulgaria… which seems very wrong to me, but I’ll try not to hold it against the movie too much. The director is from Texas, and I’m glad to be getting a new Chainsaw movie regardless.
