LEATHERFACE – Horror Channel FrightFest 2017 World Premiere 25th August & Official Poster

The eagerly-awaited, nerve-shattering prequel to the legendary The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, exploring the chilling origin of the fearsome horror icon, from the directors of the extreme French masterpiece Inside.

A young nurse is kidnapped by four violent teens after they escape from a psychiatric hospital, and take her on a road trip to hell. Pursued by an equally deranged, trigger-happy lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind – moulding him into the monster we now know as Leatherface.

When the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre burst onto the screen in 1974, a new horror legend was born, in the form of a mumbling, bumbling, flesh-masked, chainsaw wielding maniac – Leatherface! Seven films and untold gruesome deaths later, audiences can finally find out who lurks behind the mask – and how he got there, in this stylish, scary and blood-soaked prequel.

The directors – masters of horror Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury – are a perfect fit for the material, having shocked audiences with their 2007 gory Gallic debut Inside, described by Twitch as ‘one of the harshest, most brutal and disturbing things to hit celluloid in recent years’. Here, the pair deliver brooding menace and nightmarish psychological horror, all the while ratcheting up the tension to the ninth degree.

With a fantastic cast – including genre favourites Stephen Dorff (Blade) and Lili Taylor (The Conjuring), as well as Game of Thrones star Finn Jones, this is a worthy addition to the Chainsaw franchise, and a thrilling examination of the genesis of a monster ranked alongside Freddy and Jason as one of the greatest horror characters ever.

Getting its world premiere on Friday 25th August at this year’s prestigious Horror Channel FrightFest 2017 in London, this is a big moment in the annals horror cinema – the unmasking of a maniac – that will have horror fans drooling with delight.

LEATHERFACE will receive its world premiere at Horror Channel FrightFest 2017 on Friday 25th August, and will release on DVD & Blu-ray 9th January 2018 courtesy of Lionsgate UK and Lionsgate Home Entertainment UK.
