People rarely ask, “Why?” in horror movies. And they probably should. Some pretty crazy shit goes down at in these types of films, and we normally aren’t exposed to the motives of the killers or villains until far later in the canon.

Better late than never, say the producers of Leatherface, the Texas Chainsaw Massacre prequel that will let us know how a little Leatherboy in 1970′s Texas became a LeatherMAN. And also why he’s running around killing these guys with a chainsaw.

What does this mean for the timeline of the franchise? Nobody could figure that one out. This thing has been spun and sequeled and rebooted so much that the timeline looks like a spider web. Let’s just pretend it’s a standalone prequel, beholden to nothing.

(The Wrap)

Leatherface‘s return to the theater this weekend surpassed expectations by taking the number spot with a haul of $23 million. Which means, another sequel will soon be on the way.

The real story, however, is how well the film was attended by the ladies. The audience was 52 percent female and 64 percent under 25 year-of-age. Lionsgate is reporting that a third of those young girls stated that they were there to see singer Trey Songz try his hand at acting. Horror films are notoriously cheap to produce and when they hit with audiences, it leads to profits larger than anticipated. It only makes sense to revisit the franchise. There aren’t any plot details for the sequel yet but it will likely involve running and chainsaws and maybe Ne-Yo this time around. (Box Office Mojo)

You know Leatherface 3D, right?? It’s the movie about Leatherface: The Guy With Leather For A Face. Anyways, Leatherface 3D has found its director.

Takers director John Luessenhop has been hired to show the maniac the proper way to cut into hot teens with a chainsaw. This film serves as a sequel to the Platinum Dunes produced remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre from 2003. It’s said that the film picks up immediately where Tobe Hooper’s classic left off before flashing forward 35 years.

Umm… can Leatherface time-travel now? Because that is a horrifying idea. He’d be completel unstoppable and could rewrite history. Hopefully, some brave young scream queen will be able to prevent President Leatherface from being sworn into office. Though I do like the idea of him hunting foreign dignitaries inside the White House. (Bloody Disgusting)
