The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: all the films in the saga in order of release and chronological until 2022

Netflix has just released a new movie from The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, one of the best-known slasher horror sagas in history. From February 18 it is possible to enjoy the film by David Blue Garcia, which has not been released in theaters and is available on the platform.


The Texas Chainsaw Massacre is a sequel to the original film. After nearly 50 years in hiding, Leatherface returns with a thirst for blood. When some young idealists and influencers have an accident in a remote town in Texas, United States, the chain of murders is reactivated. Based on the characters created by Kim Henkel and Tobe Hooper, Chris Thomas Devil scripts the story by Fede Álvarez and Rodo Sayagues. David Blue Garcia is the director behind the scenes.


Leatherface is one of the classic killers of horror movies, but not the only one. Jason continues to terrorize the young people who flock to Camp Crystal Lake in the Friday the 13th saga, while Michael Myers returned in 2021 and will swing the knife again in Halloween Kills. Another serial killer to keep in mind is El Muñeco Diabólico, also with many installments in the cinema. Below we share the Texas Chainsaw Massacre movies, the timeline and much more:
