LEATHERFACE (2017) Movie Trailer 2: Strange Incidents Sentence a Boy to a Mental Hospital

Leatherface Trailer 2

The second movie trailer for Leatherface (2018) has been released by Lionsgate Premiere and Millennium Films. Leatherface‘s script writer Seth M. Sherwood really tried to make this film look as nonsensical as possible. Mother Sawyer (Lili Taylor) inducting her children in the world of murder was extremely strange, even for a horror film. The fact that the police find out and take her children away is the only thing in this trailer that was logical.

Then the film turns into your standard insane asylum / abuse film / TV show (e.g. Penny Dreadful) with a heavy-handed nod of the mental health hospital scenes in Rob Zombie‘s Halloween.

I do not mind derivative films as long as they improve upon what they are deriving. Leatherface doesn’t look as though it is taking those positive steps forward at all. It’s sad because Leatherface’s past is such a potentially rich narrative field to be harvested.

Leatherface‘s plot synopsis: “In Texas, years before the events of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, in the early days of the infamous Sawyer family, the youngest child is sentenced to a mental hospital after a suspicious incident leaves the sheriffs’ daughter dead. Ten years later, he kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with 3 other inmates. Pursued by authorities including the deranged sheriff out to avenge his daughter’s death, the young Sawyer teen goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster known now as Leatherface.”
