Dubbed a “requel” in the new Scream movie, Texas Chainsaw Massacre is back with a follow-up to the original film. Taking a page out of 2018’s Halloween, this upcoming Netflix film will ignore the many sequels and timelines in the Texas Chainsaw Massacre universe and bring us back to basics.
They are even bringing back a classic character in Sally Hardesty, who is now played by Olwen Fouéré (Mandy, Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald). She’ll take over the role from Marilyn Burns, who passed away in 2014.
The film’s plot is described as “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.” Check out the trailer here…
