Netflix has shared a new trailer for its Texas Chainsaw Massacre reboot, which is headed to the platform on February 18.

The slasher, which will arrive as a sequel to the original 1974 classic, stars Elsie Fisher, Sarah Yarkin, Mark Burnham, Jacob Latimore, Moe Dunford, Olwen Fouéré, Alice Krige, Jessica Allain and Nell Hudson. The movie sees Leatherface emerge from a five-decade-long hibernation to terrorize a group of friends.

The upcoming film is directed by David Blue Garcia with production from Fede Álvarez and Rodo Sayagues.

“The film takes place a long time after the original ‘Texas Chainsaw,’” Fisher said in an interview with Entertainment Weekly. “It’s about a group of people who come to this town and things don’t quite go as planned. It mixes a lot of important real-life issues with horror themes, which is always something I love.”

“I think the first movie really hit a nerve when portraying that culture clash between the countryside and the city,” Álvarez told the outlet.  “Back in the ’70s, the hippies were representing the youth of the city. This time, they’re more like millennial hipsters from Austin who are very entrepreneurial and have a dream of getting away from the city and back to the countryside. They’re trying to gentrify small-town America — and let’s just say they encounter some pushback.”
