The Creeptastic Trailer for the Grisly ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Reboot Explores the Origins of Leatherface
This looks straight-up terrifying.
Two attractive young lovebirds (a bad sign, always) narrowly miss running over a barnyard animal on a rural highway. When the girl gets out to check, she realizes it’s not a pig or cow at all… but a dude (clearly a member of the Leatherface clan) hiding inside a hallowed-out carcass.
The rest of the trailer is also some pretty freaky shit. Set in the 1960s and ’70s, Leatherface gives the titular madman the Rob Zombie’s Halloween treatment: charting his troubled childhood, stint in a mental institution, eventual escape and discovery of the chainsaw.
It’s then that he begins carving up his victims like holiday hams and wearing their skin like Ed Gein at a Halloween party.
Leatherface hits theaters on October 20. Get ready for your flesh to crawl.
