Cape Town – The Texas Chainsaw Massacre legacy continues with the latest instalment, Leatherface.

The film is a prequel to the original 1974 film. 

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 sheriff's daughter dead. 

Ten years later, he kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with three 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.

The film stars Stephen Dorff, Vanessa Grasse, Sam Strike and Lili Taylor.

Watch the trailer here:

The film will be released on DIRECTV in the US in September.
