I don’t want another prequel to a beloved horror classic anymore than the next horror fanboy. BUT, when you got the directors from Martyrs behind one, you get an excited round horror junkie. Directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo get the benefit of the doubt. Two amazing film makers tackling one of the most beloved horror franchises out there, gets me all kinds of excited. We got our grubby mits on the new clip from Leatherface and (sadly) it doesn’t feature of TCM’s signature chainsaw induce mayhem, but it does give us a looking at the direction Bustillo and Maury may be taking this flick. Check the clip out below and if you have DIRECTTV you can check the movie out right now! Lionsgate is releasing Leatherface exclusively on DIRECTV September 21, 2017 and in Theaters and On Demand October 20, 2017
SYNOPSIS: In Texas, years before the events of the Texas Chainsaw 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 sheriff’s daughter dead. Ten years later, the Sawyer teen kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with three other inmates. Pursued by authorities including the deranged sheriff out to avenge his daughter’s death, Sawyer goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster now known as Leatherface.
