New Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie’s synopsis teases a Sally Hardesty rematch

Genre icon Marilyn Burns, who played final girl Sally Hardesty in the original The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (watch it HERE), passed away in 2014, but Sally is returning in the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie that’s going to be released through the Netflix streaming service on February 18th. We heard earlier this year that Olwen Fouéré will be playing Sally in the new movie, and now the synopsis that has been released for the film teases that she and Leatherface are going to be crossing paths again, 50 years after their first encounter.

Directed by David Blue Garcia from a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devlin (based on a story by producers Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues), Texas Chainsaw Massacre has the following official synopsis:

After nearly 50 years of hiding, Leatherface returns to terrorize a group of idealistic young friends who accidentally disrupt his carefully shielded world in a remote Texas town.

Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her teenage sister Lila (Elsie Fisher), and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson), head to the remote town of Harlow, Texas to start an idealistic new business venture. But their dream soon turns into a waking nightmare when they accidentally disrupt the home of Leatherface, the deranged serial killer whose blood-soaked legacy continues to haunt the area’s residents — including Sally Hardesty (Olwen Fouéré), the sole survivor of his infamous 1973 massacre who’s hell-bent on seeking revenge.

Alvarez and Sayagues were clearly drawing some inspiration from the 2018 Halloween movie when they came up with that Sally Hardesty angle.

In addition to the actors mentioned above, the cast of this Texas Chainsaw Massacre includes Moe Dunford, Jessica Allain, Sam Douglas, William Hope, Jolyon Coy, and Alice Krige, with Mark Burnham as Leatherface.

We’re just two months away from the release of a new Chainsaw, and I’m looking forward to it.
