Modern cinema has reached a stage where nobody has to ask for a property revival anymore. Wait around long enough and it’ll happen anyway (for better or for worse). It’s a cultural phenomenon particularly endemic within the horror genre for some reason, hence why 2022 is the year we’re not only getting another Scream movie, but also this Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot-sequel hybrid destined for Netflix.

While the brand new Texas Chainsaw Massacre is technically the ninth franchise instalment, as noted by Polygon, it’s the only sequel to the original 1974 film; which is why you’ll see the “sequel” label slapped all over its marketing. And here. In any case, it follows Melody (portrayed by Sarah Yarkin), her sister Lila (portrayed by Elsie Fisher), along with their friends Dante (portrayed by Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (portrayed by Nell Hudson) as they head to the remote town of Harlow, Texas with ambitions to undertake an “idealistic new business venture.”

To dust off an old cliche, their dream soon turns into a waking nightmare when they accidentally disrupt the carefully shielded home of Leatherface, the cannibalistic serial killer whose blood-soaked legacy continues to haunt this otherwise sleepy Texan town’s residents – including Sally Hardesty (portrayed by Olwen Fouéré), the sole survivor of his infamous 1973 massacre hell-bent on seeking revenge. Similar to how Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor in Terminator: Dark Fate, Jamie Lee Curtis’ Laurie Strode in every Halloween flick post-1978, as well as the OG Scream crew are still kicking about.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2022 has been directed by Emmy award-winning director/cinematographer David Blue Garcia (Tejano). The screenplay has been penned by Chris Thomas Devlin (Cobweb), based on a story co-written by Fede Alvarez and Rodo Sayagues (Evil Dead, Don’t Breathe). Kim Henkel, co-writer of the original film directed by Tobe Hooper, served as a producer.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre will be available to stream on Netflix from February 18th – check out the trailer above. And see what else you can stream in February, check out the full monthly Netflix release schedule.
