Watch The First Trailer For TEXAS CHAIN SAW Prequel LEATHERFACE

leatherface trailer
The first trailer for the latest reboot of the famous masked killer.

As Rob Zombie's take on Halloween proved, giving us a backstory for an iconic horror villain can prove counter-productive, with much of the terror coming from the character's original ambiguity. What to expect then from Leatherface, which serves as an origin story for the titular killer, first seen in Tobe Hooper's masterpiece The Texas Chain Saw Massacre?

The film, directed by the French duo of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo (Inside), has dropped its first trailer courtesy of Bloody Disgusting and will hit US cinemas in October. No news as of yet regarding a UK/ROI release.

The official synopsis reads:

In Texas, years before the events of the Texas Chainsaw 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 sheriffs’ daughter dead. Ten years later, he kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with 3 other inmates. Pursued by authorities including the deranged sheriff out to avenge his daughter’s death, the young Sawyer teen goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster known now as Leatherface.
