Leatherface is back in Netflix’s “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”

Welcome to Harlow, Texas, population, Leather face.

Netflix has released the trailer for their version of “Texas Chainsaw Massacre.”

Many films have been made about the chainsaw-wielding psychopath, but this version is a direct sequel to the original 1974 horror.

In the film, young entrepreneurs descend on leather faces’ home of Harlow, Texas, with plans of gentrifying the seemingly abandoned town.

The would-be victims get some help from Sally Hardesty, the lone survivor from the first Texas Chainsaw movie.

The trailer is creepy, terrifying, and unsettling, but somewhere between all the shock and gore, you might have a giggle.

It hits Netflix on February 18th.

“Ted Lasso”star Brett Goldstein signs big deal with Warner Bros TV

Brett Goldstein, star of Apple TV’s hit show “Ted Lasso,” has signed a big deal with Warner Bros.TV, which will see his talents spread across many of the studio’s platforms.

Goldstein, who also serves as writer and co-executive producer on the show, plays the gruff but loveable football star Roy Kent.

Reports say that part of his new gig will include development and production across several Warner Bros. platforms.

According to Variety, Goldstein was signed during a very competitive situation with other studios.

In addition to Ted Lasso, he’s co-creator of AMC’S Soulmates and is currently working as executive producer for a new comedy “Shrinking.”

In a statement, Goldstein said it’s a dream come true.

“Much like the character Joe Gillis in Sunset Blvd, I’ve always dreamed of having my own parking space at Warners, and it’s extraordinary to see that dream come true,”

“I do, however, hope the comparison ends there, and I don’t wind up dead in a pool having been shot by an insane older movie star. As long as that doesn’t happen, I’m very excited and extremely honored to be embarking on new and exciting adventures with the excellent brothers* at Warners. (*Not all the people that work there are related. Apparently.)”
