They say, the dead never truly stay dead. Almost 50 years after the original 1974 classic, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, the infamous ‘Leatherface’ is back in action.
For the unversed, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a film franchise that includes eight films, several comic books, and a computer game version of the first film. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre, written and produced by Kim Henkel and directed by Tobe Hooper, was first released in 1974. Leatherface and his family are the villains in all of the franchise’s films, which are popular with horror movie fans even 40 years after its conception. Every project has had the first original movie director Hooper involved. Leatherface’s character and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise was truly his brilliance.
50 years later, Netflix is delivering a direct sequel to the original 1974 classic ignoring all seven of the follow-up films. Directed by debutant David Blue, the film is one of the most anticipated projects on Netflix this year.
