‘Texas Chainsaw Massacre’: Fede Alvarez Comments on Those Rumors About a Recent Test Screening

With a serious lack of promotion up to this point, it’s been easy to forget that a new take The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is on the way, with the Fede Alvarez-produced Texas Chainsaw Massacre set to be a sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original classic. We’ve been promised “Old Man Leatherface” and the return of Sally Hardesty, two teases that have us very excited.

So what’s the latest on all that? Well, we still don’t have any release details, but Bloody Disgusting’s Boo Crew Podcast did sit down with both Fede Alvarez and Don’t Breathe 2 director/Texas Chainsaw Massacre producer Rodo Sayagues for a new chat that briefly touched upon the upcoming big screen return of Leatherface. Here’s what Fede had to say.

For starters, he wanted to dispel some of those rumors about poor test screenings.

“I would let the studio announce [the planned release], but we played it a couple times. There was someone online who said it didn’t go well; I don’t know what screening he was at… it was amazing,” Alvarez explains. “When you test it, you get a score, and it scored as good as [Don’t Breathe 2], which I think is better than Don’t Breathe 1. So that tells you something.”

He continues, “It started just as Evil Dead started; us thinking, what can we do with this character and this franchise. A lot of respect for the legacy of the first movie, but we’re aware there’s a new audience out there who might not love it or doesn’t know anything about it, so we need to make sure they can enjoy it as well. That’s how the story was crafted.”

You’ll have news soon,” Alvarez adds.

You can listen to the Boo Crew’s full chat with Alvarez, Sayagues, and Stephen Lang below.

David Blue Garcia (Tejano) directed the movie for Legendary, which was written by Chris Thomas Devlin and filmed last year. The film is a sequel to Tobe Hooper’s original classic.

Elsie Fisher (“Castle Rock”), Sarah Yarkin (Happy Death Day 2U), Mark Burnham (Wrong Cops), Moe Dunford (The Dig), Olwen Fouéré (Mandy), Alice Krige (“Star Trek”), Jacob Latimore (The Maze Runner), Nell Hudson (Victoria), Jessica Allain (The Laundromat), Sam Douglas (Snatch), William Hope (Dark Shadows), and Jolyon Coy (“War & Peace”) star.

Olwen Fouéré (Mandy) is Sally Hardesty and Mark Burnham (Lowlife) is Leatherface.

Alvarez is producing with Bad Hombre’s Rodolfo Sayagues, alongside Kim Henkel (co-writer of the 1974 film), Ian Henkel and Pat Cassidy, who are producing via their Exurbia Films.

The Top 10 Streaming Scary Movies of Today (According to Netflix)

Given that Netflix really is the master of their own data, how many times a viewer streams The Ridiculous 6, or what films don't get watched all the way straight through, or how many times someone watches an episode of Bill Nye Saves the World, it was easy for them to come up with the list based on just one percentage: 70 percent.
