For some time now, the fashion has been to strike out horrific franchises and lay a new sequel which would be the direct sequel to the first part. We think of Halloween, which wiped the slate clean of the whole saga with David Gordon Green’s trilogy, or the recent Candyman. But also to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Because, funny idea, but a new part of the saga is about to be released, directly following the first cult film by Tobe Hooper – it would be forgotten that the second, also by Hooper , is a rather brilliant grotesque comedy – and forgetting the dozen or so other films with multiple chronologies. Soberly titled The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, we follow a gang of young people facing good old Leatherface, and who, in order to beat the , will have the good idea to look for Sally, the sole survivor of the first part – this time played by Olwen Fouéré, Marylin Burns having disappeared in 2014. What? Do you think it looks a bit like Halloween 2018? Bad language you are. Nevertheless, three weeks before its release, Netflix unveils (finally) a first trailer. To reassure fans, who follow the many production adventures from afar. To make it short, filming was disrupted by the Covid-19, its director duo was replaced after a week (David Blue Garcia replacing Ryan and Andy Tohill), there were rumors of completely rewritten scripts on location, a disastrous first test screening, and the Legendary studio scrapped release plans by selling the cast of the film to Netflix. . The first trailer reassures us a tad. Yes, there will be some fan service; yes, jump scare will be present; yes, it will probably be classic; and yes, this end of the trailer… But the horror looks real, the photo not uninteresting and the gore very viscous.
