The lega-sequel rolls on and this time it’s our old friend Leatherface that that will return to once again reign havoc amongst a new generation of unsuspecting Texas dwellers. Taking a page from the Halloween franchise playbook – TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE is said to be a direct sequel to Tobe Hooper’s 1974 shocker – bypassing the slew of chainsaw mayhem that originally followed in Leatherface’s bloody footprints.
Netflix took to Twitter to give us a tease.
Here is how Netflix is explaining the new trip to Texas:
After nearly 50 years of hiding, Leatherface returns to terrorize a group of idealistic young friends who accidentally disrupt his carefully shielded world in a remote Texas town.
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.
