It’s never too early to start haunt season, and Universal Orlando has already announced the first house for Halloween Horror Nights 26 – Tobe Hooper’s The Texas Chain Saw Massacre!

The classic 1974 horror film centers around a group of 5 friends who try to survive and escape from the Sawyer Family, including the deranged, chain saw wielding Leatherface.

From Universal’s Press Release:

You will walk through the iconic Texas farmhouse and experience Leatherface’s kills from the 1974 slasher film. You will desperately try to escape as the violent roar of his chain saw surrounds you. You will hear the cries and see what remains of Leatherface’s other victims. And you will come face-to-face with Leatherface himself.

This marks Leatherface’s second appearance at Halloween Horror Nights. In 2007, a house based on the 2003 remake was featured – Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Flesh Wounds.

Halloween Horror Nights 26 will run select nights from September 16 to October 31.  More details about the event will be announced at a later date. For more information about these offers, visit
