Alright, who is ready for a second trailer of a horror movie that is probably not going to be good? THIS GUY IS!

This is the type of slop I live for.

Somehow this takes place 50 years of so after the original Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) and Leatherface is still slicing away, but I am here for it.

The opening 25 seconds of the trailer sets up a women in distress and good ole Leatherface has his head pop up like a eager puppy, but instead of licking this women’s face, he probably wants to eat it.

The setup for new victims are some disillusioned young adults who want to make the abandoned town of Harlow, TX a new haven for those who are looking to start over. Naturally a young girl says that it can be someplace safe. Girl, you are in for a rude awakening.

Well! Someone still lives in Harlow! These kids just break into someone’s house and are snooping around at the town’s history? Always a recipe for bad news. Also, before I even press play again, I bet this women will deliver some scary warning or haunting backstory.

“You really shouldn’t be here…” I called it.

Someone is wandering in a decrepit kitchen and he sees leatherface’s face in a reflection of a frying pan that he himself will prolly be filleted in later.

I do not love the blinking editing around the 1:05 mark of this trailer. The quick cuts to black just don’t do it for me. At the end of this epilephsy episode is a young women, looks to be the character Melody played by Sarah Yerkin, crouching under a head with a decapitated body suddenly appearing in her line of sight. I don’t think the tune Melody will be singing is a happy one.

Sally (Olwen Fouéré) gets a phone call saying that her old friend is back. And he is hungry. Man I just typing faster than my thoughts right now. OH SHIT! It just clicked that she is final girl from the original movie! And she is hell bent on vengeance! They are going Laurie Strode and Halloween reboot/sequel storyline!

Do we dare allow ourselves a glimmer of hope seeing how the creators of the original The Texas Chain Saw Massacre are back?

So Sally is going to be the protector of the young adults who have arrived in Harlow. They have no idea what is coming for them, so Sally is their only hope. She is the chaperon on their field trip of murder and terror.

GOD DAMNIT THIS DECENT TRAILER RUINED ITSELF IN THE FINAL MOMENTS! That Instragram live bit was terrible. I hope all those kids gets slaughtered. All of them. Come on, you don’t need the gimmicks.

In this trailer we see a lot of Leatherface without his iconic mask, but we do see him raise it to the burning sun in a quick clip. Does he find his mask, meaning does he find his true self? Is when he pops up like a prairie dog the moment when it all clicks for him?

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre gives you good Valentine’s Day cheer as it is being released on February 18, 2022 on Netflix.
