Leatherface sees the iconic chainsaw wielder in his early years before the original ’70s film. In this recently revealed trailer, a young Leatherface is sentenced to a mental hospital for 10 years – he eventually escapes taking a young nurse and three other inmates along with him. Now a teen, the film will follow the iconic horror villain on a violent road trip back home, molding him into the monster we know from Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

The movie will mark the eighth overall entry in the franchise, which currently includes — in addition to the ’70s original, three sequels — a remake, a prequel to the remake, and a modern-day “direct sequel.” Catch the flick on DirecTV September 21, with a limited theatrical run and full VOD release through Lionsgate for October 20, 2017.
