Plot and Storyline

Director David Blue Garcia took the helm in this reimagined tale of terror, carefully blending the classic elements of horror with a modern, fresh perspective. The movie is set in the abandoned Texas town of Harlow after fifty years of Leatherface’s killing spree in 1973. 

Young entrepreneurs Melody and Dante along with Melody’s sister Lila and Dante’s girlfriend Ruth come to Harlow to make money from real-estate flipping. Lila is terrified of guns as she is a survivor of a school shooting. Richter, a local mechanic, befriends Lila. 

Ruth is killed by Leatherface enroute to a hospital but she has texted Melody about the crash. After a while, Melody reads Ruth’s texts and prepares to leave with Lila. Sally Hardesty, the sole survivor of Leatherface’s previous killing spree and now a battle-hardened Texas Ranger, learns of Ruth’s attack and heads out to investigate.


A thunderstorm hits Harlow as night falls, and Catherine and Lila take cover in the bus with the buyers. Leatherface somehow manages to return to the orphanage, finding Melody and Dante there. Dante, and then Ritcher became victims of Leatherface’s chainsaw and were killed. Melody manages to get on board the bus, pursued by Leatherface.

The chainsaw yielder slaughters all the people aboard, including Catherine. Fast forwarding to the end, Leatherface kills Sally and drags Melody out of the crashed car before decapitating her with his chainsaw in the middle of the street. A horrified Lila watches as the self-driving car takes her out of Harlow. Leatherface dances in the street with his chainsaw and Melody’s head.
