It seems obvious, but if you were wondering if the new The Chainsaw Massacre movie was going to get an R rating, the answer is “yes”. The film is officially rated R, and it also has an official title. You might want to sit down for this one because you’re not going to believe it. Ready? OK. The title is…Chainsaw Massacre. Yeah, that’s it. Like Facebook, they’ve lost the “the” because it’s cleaner.
In case you missed the news, there is a new one Texas Chainsaw film on the way. The film is a direct sequel to the first film and is expected to feature an older version of everyone’s favorite cannibal, Leatherface. It also brings back the character of Sally Hardesty, the only survivor of the first film (Marilyn Burns, who played the character in the original film, died in 2014, so Sally is now played by Mandy actress Olwen Fouere).
We now know the official title of the film – Chainsaw Massacre – and the official rating – R. This rating shouldn’t come as a surprise since every movie in the franchise has an R rating. Yet fans who were hoping for gore are going to get it, as the rating is due to “Strong violence d ‘bloody horror and gore, and language “.
The Texas Chainsaw the series is strange. Most of the movies look like reboots of what came before, telling essentially the same story over and over again: Young people are on a trip to Texas, they stop in the middle of nowhere, and then they are quickly targeted by a family of cannibals. I guess this new entry will follow a similar path, but the direct sequel angle intrigues me. Again, the 2013 film Texas 3D Chainsaw was type of a direct sequel to the first movie too, and that was terrible. So!
Chainsaw Massacre is led by David Blue Garcia and stars Elsie Fisher, Sarah Yarkin, Jacob Latimore, and Moe Dunford. The production was not without problems: Ryan and Andy Tohill, the team behind the 2018 Anglo-Irish film Excavation, were originally intended to be directed. However, after filming for a week, the Tohills walked away from the project due to creative differences and were replaced by Garcia. Despite all of this, I am excited about the film. Producer Fede alvarez promised the film will take on an old-fashioned, practical vibe, saying, “Everything is classic, old-fashioned gags. Much of the approach we had with Evil Dead – never VFX, to do it all. on camera. It’s a very old – school approach to filmmaking. Vintage lenses … it’s very similar to the original film. “
Chainsaw Massacre will arrive later this year.
