THE Texas Chainsaw Massacre remains one of the most iconic horrors in film history.
The iconic movie, which first dropped in 1974, was rebooted for the first time in 2003.

Next year the franchise will be updated once again, but this time as a direct sequel to the events of the first film.
In a first look poster for the film we see the revamped Leatherface – the masked serial killer who infamously hacks his victims apart with a chainsaw and mounts them on meat hooks.
“In 1974 the world witnessed one of the most bizarre crimes in the annals of American history,” the accompanying caption reads.
“In 2021, the face of madness returns.”

If you look closely, you can even see the outline of Leatherface dancing with the chainsaw over his head in the bottom half of the face.
The poster also links to the new official website for the movie, although details about its plot remain scarce.
The gruesome flick is set to star Elsie Fisher (Eighth Grade), Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner) and Moe Dunford (Vikings).
However, production on the project hasn’t exactly been plain-sailing.
