Fans of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre rejoice! The full-length red band trailer for the cult classic’s prequel, Leatherface, has debuted – if you’re of a delicate disposition we strongly advise you turn away now.
Dubbed an origin story, Leatherface is the eighth outing in the bloody gruesome saga of horror films and is helmed by French duo Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, the duo behind the slasher movie Inside (À l’intérieur), as well as Livide and Among the Living.
The trailer starts with a creepy score, building the scares with a collapsing floor in a barn, a child blowing out candles on a birthday cake before switching to a human mask being stitched together. The next thing to hit you will be the sight of, what seems, the whole town losing their minds and stabbing each other in the neck as well as shooting each other at close range with a shotgun, you know because that’s what you do before that famous chainsaw makes its appearance.
Leatherface stars Jessica Madsen, Vanessa Grasse, Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor, Stephen Dorff and Lili Taylor.
Leatherface Official Synopsis
In Leatherface, Jessica Madsen plays one of four inmates (Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor) who escapes from a mental hospital. One of them becomes the title character and iconic slasher. The quartet kidnaps a young nurse (played by Vanessa Grasse) and takes 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.
