WATCH: He’s back! Trailer lands for Texas Chainsaw Massacre

January 31st, 2022 by Marc Comments

Evil is back… and so is the only survivor!

Yes, the trailer for Netflix’s new Texas Chainsaw has dropped and, picking up where the 1974 original left off – no, none of the sequel, sidequels, reboots or remakes count, this is the only other Texas Chainsaw movie – ol’ Leatherface is back after almost five decades to carve up a new team of teenagers.

And, once he raises his ugly head, the sole survivor of his original blood bath, Sally, once again played by Marily Burns all these years later, returns for revenge in full-on Sarah Connor/Laurie Stroud fashion.

And it looks solid. And gory. And fun in a sick sort of way.

I’m not a massive horror fan but with Evil Dead and Don’t Breathe’sFede Alvarez on story duty here, I’ll definitely be tuning in to Netflix on the 18th.


After nearly 50 years of hiding, Leatherface returns to terrorize a group of idealistic young friends who accidentally disrupt his carefully shielded world in a remote Texas town.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
