I’ll say it again – I hate this current trend where horror movie sequels rehash the same title as the original film in their franchise. “Halloween” did it. “Scream” just did it. And now “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” is doing it (they actually did it back in 2003, but that was a remake rather than a sequel). This latest slasher flick comes courtesy on Netflix. And while I can’t say we really needed a new TCM, I gotta admit the new trailer looks pretty cool.
Directed by David Blue Garcia and written by Chris Thomas Devlin, this incarnation of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre” was conceived by Fede Álvarez and Rodo Sayagues, the Uruguayan duo behind the “Evil Dead” remake and “Don’t Breathe”. The film is considered a sequel to the classic 1974 original film and sees Leatherface once again after some unfortunate travelers. But this time someone comes to their rescue – Sally Hardesty, the lone survivor of the ’74 movie. Will this be good? I don’t know. Am I going to give it a shot? Absolutely!
“Texas Chainsaw Massacre” premieres on Netflix February 18th. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
