Like most of you, I was pretty darn skeptical when I learned that Michael Bay would be producing a remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. And like ... many of you, I was pleasantly surprised when Marcus Nispel's TCM remake turned out to be a big nasty ball of high-end horror hijinks. True, it doesn't exactly hold a candle to Tobe Hooper's original orgy of mayhem, but for what it was (a quickie horror remake geared at a younger audience), TCM Redux was pretty darn solid.

So I'm sure you've heard by now that Mr. Bay is producing a prequel to his well-received remake, and behind the camera he has placed director Jonathan Liebesman, whom you might remember from a flick called Darkness Falls -- although you might not want to.

So I've rambled long enough. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning is scheduled for an October release date, and JoBlo has an exclusive peek at the brand-new one-sheet. (Yep, all that rambling -- just for a link to a poster. Sorry.)

Ah, almost forgot. TCM:TB stars Jordanna Brewster, Matthew Bomer, and R. Lee Ermey, and it focuses on the formative years of everyone's favorite leatherface. The screenplay was written by David Schow (The Crow) and Sheldon Turner (The Longest Yard).
