Feel free to turn this article into a drinking game. Every time you read ‘Leatherface’, take a shot.
It’s been awhile since we’ve seen our old friend ‘Leatherface‘ (it’s been 4 years, so not that long). I was skeptical when I started watching the trailer, but it’s directed by duo Alexandre Bustillo & Julien Maury (Inside, Livide) who have a pretty strong pedigree in horror films. This one looks promising. Check the trailer out for yourself.
Starring big names including Steven Dorff & Lili Taylor. Leatherface is a “prequel about teenage Leatherface who escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse and takes her on a road trip from hell. Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface“.
I know we’ve seen plenty of these films (the best ones for me being the original and the 2003 remake) but this one looks like it could end the streak of mediocrity that has plagued the franchise for some time now. Be sure to check out the directors other films as well. Inside is especially fucked up. My fingers are crossed for this one. – NVJ
