First 'Leatherface' Poster: Prequel For 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre' Gets First Art
In case you haven't heard yet, there's another movie coming out for the iconic Texas Chainsaw series. Fans of Leatherface will be happy to hear that new film titled Leatherface will shed some light on where the famous slasher came from.
Pretty sure most people think that he's just some inbred, bloodthirsty, hillbilly. Turns out that he has an actual past.
The film will center on a young Leatherface who escapes an asylum and goes on a rampage with other patients.
Shock Till You Drop found the early poster art on Screen Daily, which features a very young boy and heavily indicates who this kid grows up to be.
First, a couple of things, the movie will apparently feature a super little Leatherface. Like a kid. This is extremely frightening. He wouldn't be the first slasher to have a childhood spent in the Asylum but to actually see him commit terrible acts of cruelty?
Fact: There is nothing scarier than psychotic kids. Nothing.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre was one of the biggest horror films to come out. It has stuck in the minds of fans for decades and pretty much gave birth to the trope of 'murderous hillbilly family'. The original film came out in 1974.
It was followed up by two direct sequels which changed the tone of the series to a more horror comedy. Then there was Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Next Generation in the 90s which, well the less we speak of it, the better.
There was a remake in 2003 that saw a follow-up prequel Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. There was also the new Texas Chainsaw 3D. The franchise is long running.
The new film, Leatherface will be the first to explore the early history of the iconic slasher.
There's no release date for the film yet.
