Texas Chainsaw Massacre (Trailer)



As far as I know, there has never been another horror film that captures the gruesome, depraved spirit that The Texas Chain Saw Massacre brought to the genre in 1974. There is no other villain quite like Leatherface in the entire history of cinema. No mercy can be found in his bones, and his true identity is concealed behind a warped everyman’s mask that he wears to hide his insecurities. He is ruthless and despicable, but he also has a sympathetic side to him in a strange way. He doesn’t move without a reason, which increases the magnitude of his impact.

This man is a true beast, and there is a reason why he and his legacy continue to loom large in the twenty-first century. Keeping this in mind, it was difficult not to be enthused about the direct sequel that David Blue Garcia’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre had been promised to be. With Evil Dead remake master Fede Alvarez producing and an apparent commitment to meaningfully furthering the original storyline, it appeared that there was no way this new version of the worst crime in Texas history could be a misstep. But it turned out to be a misstep. It turned out to be a trite modernization of the original, resting on current concepts that it doesn’t know how to comment on—or, at the very least, it’s not saying what it thinks it’s saying—or at the very least, it’s not saying what it thinks it’s saying. Melody (Sarah Yarkin) and Dante (Jacob Latimore) are two young chefs who bring a group of starving people looking for work to Harlow, a Texas ghost town seven or eight hours outside of Austin.

Based on a story by Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues, screenwriter Chris Thomas Devlin’s interpretation of this furthering of the franchise follows Melody (Sarah Yarkin) and Dante (Jacob Latimore The goal is to bring life back to the abandoned town, to repopulate it, and to rebuild from the ashes of the identity that was left behind by its inhabitants. Melody’s younger sister, Lila (Elsie Fisher), on the other hand, isn’t exactly thrilled about the prospect of leaving their home in Austin. They soon discover that they are not alone in their new home and that their decision to relocate here will be one that they will come to regret later.
