Before this year’s Leatherface, there was Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III.
One of the most underrated franchise sequels, if you’re asking me, is Jeff Burr’s Leatherface, released in 1990 as the third installment of the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre franchise. It was New Line’s first (and only) foray into the Chainsaw franchise, an attempt by the studio to turn Leatherface into their next Freddy Krueger.
Sadly, the film bombed… despite having the coolest teaser trailer ever.
Like my fellow fans of Chainsaw III, I’ve been asking for a Blu-ray release of the film for many years, so it brings me great personal joy to be able to let you know that it’s coming!
In a video teaser over on Twitter today, Warner Archive quietly revealed that Leatherface: The Texas Chainsaw Massacre III will be part of their Blu-ray slate in 2018.
