Fans of the legendary Texas Chainsaw Messacre films have been crying out for a decent entry in the franchise since 2013’s Texas Chainsaw 3D. Could Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo’s upcoming Leatherface be what horror fans are looking for? It’s a bit early to say for sure, but this prequel caught our interest from the very beginning.

However, Blood-Disgusting shared a first look at the official red band trailer for Leatherface, which is coming exclusively to DirecTV on September 21, 2017, followed by a limited theatrical run and VOD release on October 20, 2017, via Lionsgate. The prequel has been Rated R “for strong bloody violence, disturbing images, language and some sexuality/nudity.

synopsis:
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.
