“A teenage Leatherface escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnapping a young nurse and taking her on a road trip from hell while being pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge.”
A brand new trailer for ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ prequel, ‘Leatherface’, has been released ahead of it’s Frightfest debut later this month. The trailer doesn’t offer anything promising if I’m honest, and the fact that it’s premiering first on TV in the US and then releasing on DVD, is definitely a sign that this isn’t going to be on the same level as the ‘Halloween’ film Danny McBride is currently writing.
The trailer and film itself are likely to appeal to fans of the ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ franchise, who will learn the origins of the chainsaw wielding Leatherface as they witness the events that lead up to his first killing spree…
