The Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise has not had its last word. A new film will land on the small screen, on the Netflix side, in early 2022. This sequel produced by Fede Alvarez is revealed in a first trailer.
A sequel to Chainsaw Massacre on Netflix in 2022
No one will dare to contradict the cult film status that the Chainsaw Massacre by Tobe Hooper. In the mid-1970s, the director managed to deliver a peak of terror. Horror cinema is particularly subject to enduring sequels / remakes / reboots / prequels galore, this title has not escaped these practices over time and several films have emerged.
Few are those who deserve to be remembered and the franchise will once again lengthen itself with the release next year of a new film soberly titled, in original version, Texas Chainsaw Massacre. At its head, we find David Blue Garcia, an unknown who landed the job following the departure of brothers Ryan and Andy Tohill. The detail that allows you to have a little confidence in this company is the presence of Fede Alvarez (evil Dead, Don’t Breathe) to production. The project was therefore carried by the latter and Legendary, then Netflix won the broadcasting rights.
A first trailer has arrived
Waited on February 18 on the famous platform, the film will position itself as a sequel to the original, taking place a priori several years after it. The plot will take place in a small abandoned town taken over by a group of young people played by Sarah Yarkin, Elsie Fisher, Nell Hudson and Jacob Latimore. However, they had no idea that an aging Leatherface was lying around and intended to show them all the colors.
Chainsaw Massacre cuvée 2022 begins to be revealed in a first trailer. These images set the mood, showing the famous villain smashing a wall to retrieve his weapon of choice. Then a few shots show him briefly making life difficult for the foreigners who take over his territory. Difficult to judge this sequel more fully at the moment, but the artistic direction seems rather correct and the final shot in which Leatherface examines his famous skin mask kicks in. He does, however, remain cautious about this Chainsaw Massacre who still has to prove everything to convince him that he is worthy of his illustrious elder.
