Fueling rumors that Michael and Peter Spierig’s upcoming horror sequel focuses on John Kramer’s twisted disciples, and not the man himself, yesterday Lionsgate rolled out a slew of stark one-sheets for Jigsaw and, well, let’s just say they weren’t your average character posters. Rather than placing the spotlight on the film’s ensemble cast, each portrait featured a loyal follower of Kramer’s, replete with blood-drenched pig mask to drive the point home: these protégés intend to bring about a new reign of terror, and in the fallout of Jigsaw‘s first teaser trailer, horror fans are already reeling at the wild traps in store.
Working from a script composed by Pete Goldfinger and Josh Stolberg, the Spierig Brothers have been tasked with pumping fresh blood into one of horror’s modern-day favorites, and when Michael Spierig was asked to deliver an elevator pitch for Jigsaw, »

Following the “dubious’ release of the first two films in the series (one of which cause controversy in the UK by using the Texas Chainsaw prequel title), director Rene Perez is releasing the third film in his slasher oeuvre, Playing with Dolls: Havoc, to VOD platforms this week.
Playing with Dolls: Havoc is the third film in the series and sees serial killer and psychopath Havoc escaping from his prison. This time, he targets his jailers and the local residents of an isolated wood. The story also involves a sadist and voyeur. He (Richard Tyson, appearing in the franchise yet again) holds Havoc in a closed cave, to commit murder. But, Havoc turns the tables and finds a way out of his confines. Now, he is free to kill again and again and again…
Fans of the Playing with Dolls series can see Playing with Dolls: Havoc on 4K Ultra via Amazon and Vimeo. »

To kick off Comic-Con in gruesome fashion, Lionsgate has unveiled the first trailer for “Jigsaw,” the eighth film in the never-ending “Saw” franchise. The upcoming sequel, which arrives seven years after 2010’s “Saw 3D,” comes from “Daybreakers” filmmakers Michael and Peter Spierig, and looks to be a return to terrifying form following the last few entires, which were poorly received by critics. (“Saw 3D” boasts a woeful 9 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.)

Even more than sequels, prequels have a tendency to fall flat with audiences. Although people are pre-wired to want more of anything they like – a character, a story, a concept – most movies simply are built to support a protracted look at their own internal mythology. Add to that the tendency of talented creators– the hard-working men and women whose dedication made the original so worthwhile in the first place – to move on to bigger and better things, and it’s no wonder they invariably fail to connect with audiences. It’s nothing short of a miracle that the Child’s
‘Leatherface,’ the Surprise ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ Prequel, Looks Gruesome as Hell »
- Brian Hadsell
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a saga so embedded in the modern-day horror genre, that it’s almost difficult to imagine a future without it.
Of course, we know that Hollywood is partial to rebooting/resurrecting a dormant horror franchise for a new generation – think of Andy Muschietti’s It, Friday the 13th and, to a lesser extent, Jigsaw – and come October, directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo will carve out a new chapter in the storied history of TCM in the form of Leatherface.
It’s a prequel to Tobe Hooper’s genre classic of 1974, when a group of unsuspecting teens stumbled upon a cannibal family and Leatherface himself, the serial killer famed for wearing a mask made of human skin. Gnarly stuff, by anyone’s standards, and at least based on these new photos for the film, which come to us by way of Bloody Disgusting, the Texas Chainsaw »

I'm not sure which of these surprise me most: the fact that they're making a Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel, the fact that prequel is directed by Inside directors Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury or the fact that Stephen Dorff is still getting acting work.
Leatherface turns back the clock to a teenager who escapes the asylum with three other inmates. The group kidnaps a nurse and take her on a "road trip from hell."
Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman out for revenge, one of these teens is destined for tragedy and horrors that will destroy his mind, molding him into the monster we now call Leatherface.
The first trailer for Leatherface is about as inspired as any of the other plethora of [Continued ...] »

Fans of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre rejoice! The full-length red band trailer for the cult classic’s prequel, Leatherface, has debuted – if you’re of a delicate disposition we strongly advise you turn away now.
Dubbed an origin story, Leatherface is the eighth outing in the bloody gruesome saga of horror films and is helmed by French duo Alexandre Bustillo and Julien Maury, the duo behind the slasher movie Inside (À l’intérieur), as well as Livide and Among the Living.
The trailer starts with a creepy score, building the scares with a collapsing floor in a barn, a child blowing out candles on a birthday cake before switching to a human mask being stitched together. The next thing to hit you will be the sight of, what seems, the whole town losing their minds and stabbing each other in the neck as well as shooting each »

He’s only been director for a few weeks, but Ron Howard has already shared a behind-the-scenes photo from the untitled Han Solo movie, featuring everyone’s favourite Wookie Chewbacacca. Check it out here.
Spider-Man: Homecoming has had a lot of praise from fans and critics, especially for Michael Keaton’s Vulture. In a brand new interview with Yahoo, screenwriters Jonathan Goldstein and John Francis Daley revealed their version of the character in their original draft. “He was still stealing from Damage Control, but we had a different way into it,” Daley said, stating he was initially a science teacher at Peter’s school. “No, let’s separate »

Ten years after their 2007 film Inside shocked audiences with its blood-soaked imagery (think pregnant women and sharp scissors), directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo bring their sick sensibilities to a major horror franchise with the Texas Chain Saw Massacre prequel Leatherface. And the newly released red-band trailer for the film, which premiered on Bloody-Disgusting earlier today, does seem to promise a visual experience as rich as a decadent French dessert—only with, um, human skin instead of butter. Yum?
Anyway, with the retro Texas setting and plentiful bloodshed, the only problem here seems to be the haunting ballad with the childlike vocals that’s become so commonplace in horror movie trailers. We’ll see if Maury and Bustillo can pull off something truly compelling so late in the Texas Chainsaw game when Leatherface premieres on DirectTV on September 21, followed by a theatrical run on October 20. »

Soaked in blood and thick with Texas heat, the first official trailer for The Texas Chain Saw Massacre prequel Leatherface has been revealed along with the film's release details.
Exclusively debuted by Bloody Disgusting, the Leatherface trailer can be viewed below ahead of its September 21st premiere on DirecTV, which will be followed by a limited theatrical and full VOD release by Lionsgate on October 20th.

After playing a key role in the New French Extremity, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo are headed to Texas. The co-directors of “Inside” (“À l’intérieur”) are helming “Leatherface,” a prequel to “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre” that will presumably tell us everything we ever wanted to know about our favorite chainsaw-wielding psychopath. Watch the red-band trailer below.

This Halloween, Lionsgate is plotting double trouble.
On the one hand, the studio is working closely with Michael and Peter Spierig to rustle up Jigsaw, the eighth Saw movie that’s poised to carve out a new chapter in the blood-drenched lore of John Kramer (Tobin Bell). It’s by no means the only marquee horror picture due to arrive in October though, as Lionsgate and Millennium Films are also preparing the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel movie known simply as Leatherface.
A minimalist, yet instantly recognizable title isn’t the only thing that the two projects have in common, either, as Leatherface is also on the verge of becoming the eighth entry into the Texas Chainsaw series later this year. Pitched as “a brutal and nihilistic road movie,” that sense of legacy isn’t lost on co-directors Julian Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, who are working from a script by Seth M. Sherwood. »

Get ready to revisit the Texas Chainsaw Massacre mythology with Leatherface, the new horror film that returns to the origin of the infamous killer. The film's first trailer teases just what sort of movie fans of the franchise are in for. I say "teases" because this first look is really just a collection of creepy scenes that should be familiar--a mask made of human skin, bloody violence, Sawyer Family dinners, etc.--though with contemporary changes afforded by modern effects work and an all-new cast. The story is secondary to the gore in this trailer, but here's … »

The first teaser trailer has arrived for upcoming horror film Lasso, which is set to scare up a storm when it’s released later this year – you can view the first look below!
Described as a mix of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre and classic sci-fi film Cocoon, the film centres on a group of active seniors who are out on a trip to a local Rodeo festival with their leaders. Soon, they become caught in a deadly ritual that is part of the rodeo and must fight to save themselves from what terrors lurk beneath.
Sean Patrick Flanery (The Boondock Saints), Lindsey Morgan (The 100), Karen Grassle (Little House on the Prairie) and Andrew Jacobs (Paranormal Activity) are amongst the stars of the film, which is directed by Evan Cecil, who spoke about the film saying:
“We wanted to create a unique and exciting, cinematic throwback to classic horror films, »

Fear is only the beginning Described by director Evan Cecil as “a throwback to classic horror films” and by producer Todd Myers as “a Texas Chainsaw Massacre meets Cocoon style horror movie,” the upcoming Lasso definitely has our attention. It’s got a really cool premise, and it sounds like an absolute blast. Check out the teaser […] »

The UK’s leading horror film festival FrightFest is making its grand return at the back-end of this summer. And the fact that the fest is returning to its original Leicester Square home isn’t the only reason to get excited for August. The initial line-up that went live this weekend boasts a ridiculous amount of both world and European premieres, as well as some serious horror heavy-hitters too.
Starting things out on opening night, Thursday 24th August, is the world premiere of the latest in the Chucky saga Cult of Chucky, followed swiftly by the European premiere of Adam Wingard’s Netflix-backed Death Note remake. So not only will festival-goers get the chance to see the new Americanised take before it hits the streaming service direct, they’ll get to see it exclusively on the big screen too.
As the weekend goes on, there’ll also »
