Not as bloody as the first red band trailer for the upcoming Leatherface prequel, but the second trailer gives hounds another look at the iconic villain in his teenage years. Plus, it give us a deeper look into fierce family ties and disturbing events at a psychiatric ward.
This prequel is about a teenage Leatherface who escapes from a mental hospital with three other inmates, kidnaps a young nurse, and takes 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.
