Rumor time! Netflix Wants Two More TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE Sequels?



All right, horror fans, fasten your seat belts because it’s our favorite time of the day. What time is it, exactly? Why is it rumor time, of course! Before digging too deep here, we need to emphasize issue little of all this because it is far from confirmed. Nonetheless, there is enough smoke here to make us believe there will be fire soon. So, let’s talk. “That” in this case is not one but two more possible Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel from Netflix.

The rumor in question came to us from JoBlowith the outlet reporting that Mark Burnham, who played Leatherface this year Texas Chainsaw Massacre sequel, was at the recent Monsterpalooza convention. Things got interesting as Burnham appeared to be joining one of the producers of the film, and the producer allegedly told fans that Netflix had ordered two (count them, two!) more sequels to the iconic horror franchise. If true, this would be a huge problem, although there is a lot to consider.

First and foremost, Legendary sold the David Blue Garcia-directed legacy sequel straight to Netflix, giving up the opportunity to cash in at the box office. The film was critically criticised, currently sitting at just a 32% approval rating on Rotten Tomatoes to go with an increasingly poor 27% audience approval rating. Is such a thing a completely accurate indicator of quality? Absolutely not. But it does impact decision-making when it comes to spending money on films, and that audience score stands out like a sore thumb. Netflix, however, may be more concerned with the fact that Texas Chainsaw Massacre earned a whopping 29,180,000 viewing hours in its first weekend of release, ranking as the number one film on the service that week. For those who may need a refresher, the synopsis of this film reads as follows:

Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her teenage sister Lila (Elsie Fisher), and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson), travel to the remote town of Harlow, Texas to start an idealistic new business venture. But their dream soon turns into a nightmare when they accidentally intrude on the home of Leatherface, a deranged serial killer whose bloodied legacy continues to haunt the residents of the area—including Sally Hardesty (Olwen Fouéré), the sole survivor of the infamous 1973 massacre. who is desperate for revenge.”


Now, getting into slightly more spoiler-filled territory (you’ve been warned), Garcia’s films include a post-credits scene, as far more franchise films these days aren’t common. The scene reveals that old man Leatherface made it out of a small town massacre alive and vacated his bloody home – and by house, we mean the home of Tobe Hooper’s original horror classic. It really set the stage for a continuation that would take the series back to its roots. The table is set if Netflix feels this is a worthy investment. For what it’s worth, Garcia has also said in interviews that he has ideas for continuing the story, should the opportunity arise.

That said, if this is true and news has been circulating on the convention circuit, we should hear the official word on this front soon. News about Neve Campbell not coming back for Shout 6 also first appeared on Monsterpalooza before it was made official, so another big horror news has come from that sacred hall. We’ll keep you updated as official details are revealed.

Texas Chainsaw Massacre now streaming on Netflix.
