Leatherface Is Unleashed in New Trailer for Netflix’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre

Get a taste of Leatherface’s next chainsaw massacre with an all-new trailer for Texas Chainsaw Massacre, a “requel” to the original 1974 film of the same name by Tobe Hooper. The new trailer gleefully divulges some pretty big spoilers, including multiple character deaths, so it’s best to keep that in mind before watching the video. With that said, you can check out Leatherface’s violent and bloody return in the video below.

Synopsis: 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.


David Blue Garcia directed Texas Chainsaw Massacre with a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devlin and story by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues. Kim Henkel produces with Alvarez, Sayagues, Ian Henkel, Pat Cassidy, and Shintaro Shimosawa.

No Other Texas Chainsaw Massacre Sequels Exist In This Timeline


This new film takes an approach similar to Blumhouse’s Halloween movies in that it only acknowledges the original movie and none of the other sequels. The idea is that the events of Netflix’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre occur decades later with Leatherface having been in hiding all of this time. Something in him awakens in the present day and causes the madman to embark on an even bloodier chainsaw massacre.

“I think the first movie really hit a nerve when portraying that culture clash between the countryside and the city,” producer and co-writer Fede Álvarez said of the film, per EW. “Back in the ’70s, the hippies were representing the youth of the city. This time, they’re more like millennial hipsters from Austin who are very entrepreneurial and have a dream of getting away from the city and back to the countryside. They’re trying to gentrify small-town America — and let’s just say they encounter some pushback.”

He added, “It’s basically the same character, who is still alive, [from the original film]. Our take on it was this guy probably disappeared after everything he’s done. You know, how do you catch a guy who has a mask? Once he removes the mask and runs away, it’s very easy for him to hide somewhere. This story will pick it up many, many years after the original story. He’s been in hiding for a long, long time, trying to be a good person. These people arriving in this town are going to awaken the giant.”

Texas Chainsaw Massacre will premiere on Netflix on Feb. 18. Whether this new installment will result in Netflix ordering any more direct sequels will depend upon its viewership and how well it is received by fans, but with this new film following the releases of new sequels in the Halloween and Scream franchises, along with a Chucky series, it’s a good time to be a fan of the classic slashers.
