Leatherface Trailer

"Witness the beginning of your end." Lionsgate Premiere has debuted the first official red band trailer for the horror prequel Leatherface, telling the story of the upbringing of the man who would eventually become known as "Leatherface". This is the long-awaited official prequel to Tobe Hooper's original horror classic, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre from 1974. In this film, Jessica Madsen plays one of four young inmates from a mental hospital - the other three played by Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, and James Bloor. They kidnap a nurse, played by Vanessa Grasse, and take her on a "road trip from hell" while being pursued by a vengeful sheriff. The full cast also includes Stephen Dorff, Lili Taylor, and Julian Kostov. This looks pretty crazy, violent as all hell, bloody as all hell, hopefully what fans have been waiting for. Fire it up below.

Here's the first red band trailer (+ poster) for Bustillo & Maury's Leatherface, from Bloody Disgusting:

Leatherface Movie Poster

In Texas, years before the events of the Texas Chain Saw 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. 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 teen goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster known now as Leatherface. Leatherface is co-directed by French filmmakers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, of the horror films Inside, Livid, and Among the Living previously. The screenplay is written by Seth M. Sherwood. Lionsgate Premiere will be releasing Leatherface in select theaters + on VOD starting October 20th this fall, just in time for Halloween. You in?

There's just not enough nakedness in films like this. That would make them a real art ...

Another Leatherface origin story? How many do we need? At least the other one had R. Lee Ermey.

Trailer looks great nothing against any body but you can tell most of the comment section here arent horror fans or dont know much about the franchise.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and while TCM from 1974 is my favorite horror movie, this looks like garbage. Eventually lame attempts to capitalize on the original will run dry and it might happen even faster if folks like yourself wouldn't spend their hard-earned money on it.

This isnt an attempt to capitalize on the original its its own film that connects to the original.This is the only film in the franchise since the second to have a different plot an story that dosent re do the first.Either way you cant please every body.Even if this movie comes out an is loved by the majority it dosent mean you or I will like it.Either way this looks like the best thing this franchise has done in a decade.An is made by two good directors.They have all ready done a good job just from the trailer in capturing an old school 7os look.Since this is a prequel to the first.
