Young Leatherface Stands Tall on Poster for Texas Chain Saw Massacre Prequel

Published

on

Do we really need another Texas Chain Saw Massacre? No, of course we don’t. But with Inside filmmakers Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury at the helm of this next one, I see no reason why we shouldn’t all be excited about the return of the genre’s most hulking brute.

Courtesy of the Fantastic Fest Twitter comes our first look at Leatherface, which is set to be a prequel to the original classic, giving us a glimpse at the slasher icon’s teenage years. That first look is in the form of a poster, teasing the bloody carnage. Dig it!

Millennium Films, who was behind the 2013 Texas Chainsaw 3D, is once again producing with Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman, and Carl Mazzacone for Lionsgate. 2014 Blood List winner Seth M. Sherwood wrote the screenplay.

Look for more on Leatherface soon.

Synopsis:
In this prequel to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a young nurse is kidnapped by four violent teens who escape from a mental hospital and take her on a road trip from hell. Pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface.

ALIEN Day Gets Emotional With This In Memoriam Video

Published

on

As we all know, April 26 is Alien Day. A reference to LV-426, the planet from both Alien and Aliens, today has been a celebration of the 20th Century Fox franchise that began in 1979 with director Ridley Scott and writer Dan O’Bannon’s screenplay. For nearly 40 years, the Xenomorph has terrorized audiences in multiple films, dozens of comics, plenty of video games, and more merchandise than pretty much any home could ever hope to store. But while we flood our timelines with the joy of celebrating this storied sci-fi/horror franchise, we should also take a moment to remember those that we have lost along the way.

It’s with this in mind that Job Willins has created a stirring and beautiful “In Memoriam” for the characters throughout the films whose lives have tragically been cut short either by an alien being or through their own stupidity. Yes, I’m looking at you scientists from both Prometheus and Alien: Covenant.

So let’s bow our heads and lend our thoughts to the poor souls who have died so that Weyland-Yutani’s shares could go up a quarter of a percent.

Universal Orlando Unveils HALLOWEEN HORROR NIGHTS House Dead Exposure: Patient Zero

Published

A few weeks ago, Universal announced that they would be introducing a Stranger Things maze at this year’s Halloween Horror Nights in their Hollywood, Singapore, and Orlando locations. Today, the Orlando location has revealed another one of their treats – or would it be a trick? – in the form of their haunted house attraction “Dead Exposure: Patient Zero”.

The world doesn’t get any darker. The planet has been infected with the ultimate pandemic. A ghoulish biological outbreak is turning swaths of humanity into a plague of vicious, swarming zombies. In a flash, you’re lost in darkness—but the zombies can still see you, and soon your growing unease will turn to screams and despair. If you’re not already afraid of the dark, you will be.

You can watch a promo video for the house below. If you want to know more about Halloween Horror Nights, check out our write-up.
