Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Trailer Talk
After the return of the ‘Scream’, ‘Paranormal Activity’ and ‘Chucky’ franchises this year, it seems that Leatherface wants to join in. Leatherface’s first appearance was in 1974 with Tobe Hooper’s ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ with the last entry being in 2017 with the divisive ‘Leatherface’.
After nearly 50 years of hiding, the horror icon Leatherface returns to wreak havoc on a group of teens who accidentally stumble onto his shielded world.
There seems to be a theme currently running through mainstream horror films, which could be dubbed as the ‘nostalgia’ genre. Just this year has seen a new ‘Ghostbusters’ and ‘Paranormal Activity’ film, a ‘Chucky’ series and even the new entry in the ‘Scream’ franchise commentates on this idea of returning icons and cast. And, with original lead character Sally Hardesty returning, this entry looks to join in with the current trend. But that’s not to say that’s a bad thing; if these aspects hold an importance to the film, then the nostalgia grab could be worth it, like in ‘Ghostbusters: Afterlife’.
‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ does look enjoyable and creepy. Plus, this entry is written by Fede Alvarez, who wrote 2016’s ‘Don’t Breathe’ and the brilliant ‘Evil Dead’ remake from 2013. Therefore, I am hopeful for this entry, even if it is being released onto Netflix with hardly any promotion. I just hope this film has something unexpected within it, considering the number of sequels ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ has, or that it’s scary or creepy.
