October 20th will bring us a new Texas Chainsaw Massacre movie - unless you have DirectTV. There is something going down with them to get it early (Sep. 21st), but I don't have DirectTV, so whatever. Anyway, this will be the 8th film in the series, and I looked all over the place for as much info as I could find. I was confused as to whether this was a remake of the 3rd film, but doesn't seem so. Leatherface is a child in this one, just learning how to be a crazy bastard.
Lili Taylor is in the movie, playing who I think is Leatherface's mother. Stephen Dorff is also in there, and I always like his brand of "acting". That sounded sarcastic, but I really do like him. So far there is only a few stills from the movie available from Bloody Disgusting. I assume a trailer will drop some time soon.
Note: There is a trailer on youtube claiming to be for this movie - it isn't. Also, there was a movie titled Leatherface released in the UK recently. That movie is a total knockoff, and I am not even sure how they got away with it.
I'll definitely follow this story and let you know if any new and interesting info comes out. I love these movies. And yes, I even love The Next Generation - probably too much.
