First Official Images From Leatherface Revealed, Release Date Announced

Leatherface - Why the major icons are coming back

We have a cluster of Leatherface news to share with you, today. First and foremost, we have a release date and details regarding the film’s distribution strategy. In addition, we also have the first batch of official images available  for you to check out! Both courtesy of BD.

As for the release date and distribution strategy, The outlet is reporting that the film will hit DirecTV exclusively on September 21, 2017. It will then make a limited theatrical bow and VOD debut on October 20, 2017.

I’m surprised that the film isn’t getting a proper theatrical release. But, I suppose it’s a sign of the changing times.

We previously reported that the film had been submitted to the MPAA and secured a classification. As it stands, the flick scored an R-rating for“strong bloody violence, disturbing images, language and some sexuality/nudity.

In an interview with BD, Leatherface directors Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo offered a brief description as to what we can expect from the film, calling it “a brutal and nihilistic road movie that we hope will surprise and delight the fans…”

Lili Taylor, James Bloor Sam Strike, Stephen Dorff, and Angela Bettis star in the upcoming prequel, which will follow Leatherface as a young man.

The script was penned by Seth M. Sherwood. Stay tuned to the site in the coming months for more on this and the latest in horror news as it breaks!
