What Is The New ‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’ About?
I have to be honest, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve watched the original movie, although I have watched it many times during my lifetime.
I think the first movie really hit a nerve when portraying that culture clash between the countryside and the city. Back in the ’70s, the hippies were representing the youth of the city. This time, they’re more like millennial hipsters from Austin who are very entrepreneurial and have a dream of getting away from the city and back to the countryside. They’re trying to gentrify small-town America — and let’s just say they encounter some pushback.filmmaker Fede Álvarez – EW
This newest film is directed by David Blue Garcia and the story continues from the first movie, but many many years later.
So before watching this newest movie, disregard every other movie made in the franchise, besides the first one.
It’s basically the same character, who is still alive, [from the original film]. Our take on it was this guy probably disappeared after everything he’s done. You know, how do you catch a guy who has a mask? Once he removes the mask and runs away, it’s very easy for him to hide somewhere. This story will pick it up many, many years after the original story. He’s been in hiding for a long, long time, trying to be a good person. These people arriving in this town are going to awaken the giant.filmmaker Fede Álvarez – EW
