In the market for your first look at Leatherface, the prequel to the original classic The Texas Chain Saw Massacre that will introduce us to a young version of horror cinema’s chainsaw-wielding villain? Then you are in luck!
Leatherface stars Vanessa Grasse as Lizzy, a young nurse at a mental hospital who’s kidnapped by a group of violent teenagers and taken on a road trip from hell; Lili Taylor as Verna Sawyer; Jessica Madsen; Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, and James Bloor as the potential Leatherfaces; and Stephen Dorff as a lean, mean Texas Ranger who has a vendetta against the teen boy who grows up to become Leatherface.
Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, the French filmmakers behind cult hit Inside, are directing the flick, which was written by up-and-coming genre scribe Seth M. Sherwood (2014 Blood List winner).
Millennium Films, which was behind the 2013 Texas Chainsaw 3D, is once again producing with Christa Campbell, Lati Grobman, and Carl Mazzacone for Lionsgate.
In this prequel to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, a young nurse is kidnapped by a group of 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.
