Leatherface is back.

A few weeks ago, we told you that Leatherface would be returning in a  new gory installment of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise, and after seeing the first trailer, it appears that the talented duo of  Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo ( Inside (À l’intérieur), Livide and Among the Living) have captured the tone of Tobe Hooper's original.

In Leatherface, Jessica Madsen plays one of four inmates (Sam Coleman, Sam Strike, James Bloor) who escapes from a mental hospital. 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 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.

Along the way, they are pursued by an equally deranged lawman (Stephen Dorff) who's out for revenge.

Leatherface is released on October 20.
