A second trailer for Leatherface, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot, has debuted, and it opens with one of the most downright messed-up scares of recent horror memory.

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.
