The release of the new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie is creeping up on us! Ahead of the February premiere, Netflix has revealed the official poster for the film that features a much older (but still deadly) Leatherface.
A decades-later sequel to Tobe Hooper’s harrowing 1974 original, Texas Chainsaw Massacre was directed by David Blue Garcia and written by Chris Thomas Devlin. Here’s the official synopsis:
“After nearly 50 years of hiding, Leatherface (Mark Burnham) 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.”
Texas Chainsaw Massacre will carve into Netflix on February 18th.
