A brand new clip from the Texas Chainsaw prequel, Leatherface has been released and is making a break for it! Directed by Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, the film released exclusively on DirecTV on September 21st, with a limited theatrical and VOD release coming October 20th from Lionsgate. It has been rated R “for strong bloody violence, disturbing images, language and some sexuality/nudity.”
In Texas, years before the events of The Texas Chain Saw Massacre in the early days of the infamous Sawyer family, the youngest child is sentenced to a mental hospital after a suspicious incident leaves the sheriff’s daughter dead. Ten years later, the Sawyer teen kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with three other inmates. Pursued by authorities including the deranged sheriff out to avenge his daughter’s death, Sawyer goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster now known as Leatherface.
