As stories go, especially horror stories, ‘stuck in an insane asylum’ is one we seem to want to go back to again and again. You think the cow has been milked dry but then another bunch of teenagers stumble into a crumbling ruin and end up finding that all the doors have been locked whilst they weren’t paying attention. The Asylum gives you what you would expect, but in fact it gives

Texas Chainsaw

Evil Wears Many Faces

Revving Up Monday 27Th May

Lionsgate’s Texas Chainsaw, the Us #1 box office hit, picks up directly where the terrifying 1974 movie, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre ended, with the repercussions of Leatherface’s shocking slayings. In the aftermath of Tobe Hooper’s classic, the townspeople take dramatic action against the Sawyer family. They had long suspected that the family was responsible for several mysterious disappearances and had their suspicions confirmed when a young woman escaped the house. Word of the murders quickly spread, and a vigilante mob of enraged locals surrounded the Sawyer stronghold, burning it to the ground and killing every last member of the family – or so they thought.

Decades later and hundreds of miles away from the original massacre, a young woman named Heather learns that she has inherited a Texas estate from a grandmother she never knew she had. After embarking
