After over 40 years worth of crappy reboots and sequels since its release, the 1974 Texas Chainsaw Massacre is finally getting an origin story called Leatherface, and it looks like it's going to be as gory and terrifying as the horror film classic, per the creepy AF trailer. The first trailer, which dropped earlier this summer, can be seen below.
The movie chronicles a young Leatherface's rise to chainsaw-wielding insanity, from his terrifying mother's murderous promptings (she gives him a chainsaw and a man to cut up for his birthday (!!!!!)) to his violent escape from an asylum. Don't get your hopes up even if anybody manages to escape Leatherface in this film—everyone knows his killing spree is just beginning because he ends up slaughtering a bunch of sex-crazed teenagers a few years later.
Basically, if you're looking for chilling shots of the desolate Texas countryside, young, dumb and in-love teenagers with a death wish, and lots of masks made of human skin, you have arrived at your destination.
Leatherface will premiere on DirecTV on September 21 before a limited-release theater debut October 20—just in time to piss your pants in the name of Halloween.
