Netflix has announced the release date for their new Texas Chainsaw Massacre film and has dropped the first trailer for the horror pic.

The new film will hit Netflix on Feb. 18. It will be the ninth film overall in the franchise, but it serves as a direct sequel to the original 1974 film.

Here's the official description of 'Texas Chainsaw Massacre':

After nearly 50 years of hiding, Leatherface returns to terrorize a group of idealistic young friends who accidentally disrupt his carefully shielded world in a remote Texas town.

The film looks like it will follow a group of young people who move to a remote Texas town to start a new business venture, only to be met with the return of Leatherface, who has been hiding for a few decades.

The premise is exciting and features a filmmaking team that includes Fede Alvarez (Evil Dead) and co-writer of the 1974 classic The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Kim Henkel.
