Following the load of news regarding the next Halloween movie, I realized 2016 won't just be another year full of superhero heavyweights, but also a year for our favorite slasher icons to return and put Horror back in its place. Is this the final straw for our favorite slashers or is this a rebirth? Let's see...
Here is the list of slasher icons that will be making their comebacks in the next year or so.
Texas Chainsaw 3D was extremely successful whether you enjoyed the movie or not. And as a result the iconic chainsaw wielding Leatherface will be returning to theaters with the title named after himself. Since filming has already begun for the movie, it looks like they'll successfully reach their designated goal of a 2016 release for the movie.
The movie itself will be about Leatherface's years before the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre film. Here's what the official plot synopsis is.
"The story of this prequel will feature a teenage lunatic who eventually becomes Leatherface escaping a mental institution with three other inmates, taking a nurse along with them for the horrifying ride. Hot on their tail is a lawman who seems to be just as screwed up in the head as the escapees."
The duo taking on this entry in the iconic franchise are Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo. Both of whom are best known for their blood infested french movies Inside, Among the Living, and Livid.
The producers of the movie have expressed their faith in the two directors, and are sure this entry won't be light on gore in the slightest.
“Some negative feedback said we didn’t go far enough with pushing the limits of horror. With our new directors, Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo, anyone who is familiar with their previous French horror films, Inside, Among the Living or Livid, they’ll know we’re not going to shy away from violence to make something that is PG-13. This is going to be very cool, psychologically disturbing violent horror at its best.”
