With LEATHERFACE set to cut into the DirecTV scene this month and theaters next month, a new poster has been released for the saga of how one very disturbed Texas boy started out on the road to being a classic screen psycho.

Directed by the INSIDE team of Julien Maury and Alexandre Bustillo from a script by Seth M. Sherwood, LEATHERFACE makes its exclusive DirecTV premiere September 21 and hits big screens as well as VOD October 20. Stephen Dorff, Lili Taylor, Sam Strike, Sam Coleman, Vanessa Grasse, James Bloor and Jessica Madsen star; the synopsis: “In Texas, years before the events of THE TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE, in the early days of the infamous Sawyer family, the youngest child is sentenced to a mental hospital after a suspicious incident leaves the sheriff’s daughter dead. Ten years later, the Sawyer teen kidnaps a young nurse and escapes with three other inmates. Pursued by authorities including the deranged sheriff out to avenge his daughter’s death, Sawyer goes on a violent road trip from hell, molding him into the monster now known as Leatherface.”
