Texas Chainsaw Massacre Gets Official Title & Rating: R

A new Texas Chainsaw Massacre film is coming soon, and more and more about it is coming to light as the weeks pass. While we still do not have a release date, or a trailer, or even a look at what the film will be, we know what it will be called and what it will be rated. Sit down for this one; you will never see it coming. The film will be titled Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and it will be rated R for"strong bloody horror violence and gore, and language." according to FilmRatings. It was also recently revealed that final girl Sally Hardesty will be in the new film, played by Olwen Fouéré.

I Am Still Not Excited For Another Texas Chainsaw Film

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") all-star in the new film, which is directed by David Blue GarciaChris Thomas Devlin wrote the script. Legendary will be releasing this new Texas Chainsaw film, which is the ninth film in the franchise, if you can believe that. While Jason, Michael, and Freddy, and the like lend themselves to multiple films, I never think of Leatherface that way.

Maybe it is because that first film is so unassailably great that I just don't need any more of them. Honestly, it is hard to get excited about another Texas Chainsaw film. However, the fact that they are going the Halloween 2018 route and ignoring everything else and bringing back Sally is interesting. Of course, I am going to watch it; I can't help myself. But I am not going into this one with any excitement at all. I hope that the team here proves me wrong.
