Michael Myers, Ghostface and Candyman (don’t say it more than three times) are reappearing on the big screen at rapib rate.
But it’s time for them to step aside, as we welcome back Texas Chainsaw Massacre villain Leatherface – and this time he is looking for even more blood.
That’s right, the mass murdering maniac is returning to wage war on humanity with his iconic chainsaw after almost 50 years.
The original 1974 slasher flick The Texas Chainsaw Massacre terrified audiences across the globe on its release, with blood splattering gore shocking audiences across the globe, and now it is getting a highly anticipated sequel - via Netflix.
And this time ‘the face of madness’ will be back for more blood via streaming giant Netflix, as producers Legendary Pictures opt to place the scare-ride onto the platform, rather than a choosing a standard cinematic release.
Directed by Emmy award-winning David Blue Garcia (Tejano), the trailer for latest instalment in the Texas Chainsaw franchise reveals it is a direct sequel to the 1974 original of the same name.
The story has been penned by Fede Álvarez and Rodo Sayagues, the same duo who teamed up for the 2013 Evil Dead remake and the popular Don’t Breathe series.
When is The Texas Chainsaw Massacre released on Netflix?
A short trailer for the film dropped in early December, and showed a group of idealistic young friends who accidentally disrupt Leatherface, who has been hiding in a carefully shielded world for 47 years in a remote Texas town.
