A movie with the state of Texas for its name, Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2022 filming locations were not in the lone star state. Instead the film was shot in Europe; get all the details of the Netflix horror sequel!
From the moment of its conception in the 2010s, Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake/sequel had to fight an uphill battle. A classic horror flick that just could not find a way to be made. After different attempts failed, Legendary Picture tried its hand on the movie but after multiple abysmal test screenings, Netflix stepped in.
Even then, firing of directors after a week and a reshuffle resulting in all the shot footage being thrown out, here we are, 2 years later, getting ready for the 4 decade old remake to the classic horror flick. Starring new and some recognizable faces, the plan is there to start a franchise with Leatherface, but it all depends on how the 2022 movie is received in the first place.
With a trailer that got people excited, there is hope that some level of respect will be restored to the franchise after the horrendous 2017 attempt at continuation. But before getting further into the movie, here is everything you need to know about Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2022 filming locations.
