Here is great news for slasher fans! The favorite horror franchise Texas Chainsaw Massacre is coming back with a secret weapon. Though this new Netflix Original Texas Chainsaw Massacre won’t be the first sequel in the storied franchise, it looks like a direct sequel to the 1974 classic Tobe Hooper’s Texas Chain Saw Massacre. The first 2006’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre was a prequel to the movie’s 2003 remake.
After 2013’s sequel Texas Chainsaw 3D, 2017 saw the arrival of Leatherface, which was not so scary as every Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie. Now, the 2022 Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the ninth installment of the ancient franchise neglecting all of the other sequels in the franchise, will be a direct continuation of the first movie’s story almost after 50 years.
David Blue Garcia directs this new Bulgaria-shot film with a screenplay by Chris Thomas Devlin. Fede Álvarez wrote the original story won over countless horror series fans with his movie Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe.
Along with his writing partner Rodo Sayagues, he will be ready to offer once again a simple, scary chase story with the reboot of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The movie is a joint-venture production between Legendary Pictures, who acquire the rights of the franchise after Lionsgate and Millenium Films; Bad Hombre and Exurbia Films.
The story will start around 50 years later of the original story when a new group of young outsiders comes to Harlow, Texas, and accidentally disturb the Sawyer family home, where Leatherface waits. Leatherface is a serial killer whose blood-soaked legacy continues to terrorize the residents, Sally Hardesty (Olwen Fouéré), his single survivor, is one of them.
No one knows where to catch this guy who has a mask as he disappeared immediately after everything he’s done. He’s been hidden for quite some time by becoming a good person as it’s pretty easy for him. These idealistic group of four adults, namely, Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her teen sister Lila (Elsie Fisher), an amateur photographer and wheelchair-bound, and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson), a 25-year-old San Francisco moneymaker, have a dream to start an idealistic new business venture but soon it turns into a waking nightmare as they came across the Leatherface.
