The first Leatherface trailer had a lot of blood and foreboding imagery (a birthday chainsaw! a mask made of human skin!), this trailer starts to dig into the Texas Chain Saw Massacre lore that Leatherface is all about. Basically, that means a lot of creepy people doing creepy stuff, but there’s also an extended foray into an asylum of some sort that foolishly thinks it can cure Lil’ Leatherface of his homicidal tendencies. It obviously doesn’t work, but at least someone tried to help this poor guy at some point—even though the asylum’s methods will probably be horrific and inhuman, like in all movie asylums.
Leatherface was directed by Inside filmmakers Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, and it will premiere on DirecTV on September 21 before a theatrical run on October 20.
