The first photos have been released from “Leatherface,” the upcoming prequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 classic “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”. Bloody Disgusting premiered the shots.
The story will follow the titular character’s evolution from teenage psychopath to face-removing cannibal. The twist? You have to guess which one as the story begins with a quartet of escaped criminally-insane mental patients and the nurse that they take hostage.
Only one of them will become the skin mask wearing nutter. Stephen Dorff plays a sheriff attempting to track down the maniacs before they can slaughter more innocents. Lili Taylor, Finn Jones, James Bloor, Vanessa Grasse, Sam Coleman and Sam Strike also star in the film which comes from acclaimed “Inside” directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury.
Shot in 2015, the film is now finally arriving on DirecTV on September 21st followed by a limited theatrical release and wide VOD release on October 20th.
