Netflix’s Texas Chainsaw Massacre was only released last week, but it’s been incredibly divisive among horror fans. Some love the film, while others hate it. THS gave the film a 92/100, which you can read at THIS LINK. Releasing it only through streaming was a gamble that looks like it paid off for Netflix. They’ve recently released some streaming information that reveals some success for the horror sequel.
It was the second most viewed movie on Netflix during the February 14th to February 20th time frame. That only covers three days of its release, which means these numbers could be much higher than already reported. In those three days, Netflix subs streamed the film for 29.18 million hours.
It was just barely beat out by The Tinder Swindler, which was watched for 34 million hours.
Texas Chainsaw Massacre ranked in the top 10 in 94 different countries and hit #1 in the US, Bolivia, Brazil, Honduras, Oman, Phillippines, and Saudi Arabia.
The Crew And Synopsis For Texas Chainsaw Massacre
Director David Blue Garcia and the creative team behind the film, Fede Alvarez, Chris Thomas Devlin, and Rodo Sayagues knocked this one out of the park. For those who might be waiting on the film, the plot synopsis goes like this:
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.
Melody (Sarah Yarkin), her teenage sister Lila (Elsie Fisher), and their friends Dante (Jacob Latimore) and Ruth (Nell Hudson), head to the remote town of Harlow, Texas to start an idealistic new business venture. But their dream soon turns into a waking nightmare when they accidentally disrupt the home of Leatherface, the deranged serial killer whose blood-soaked legacy continues to haunt the area’s residents — including Sally Hardesty (Olwen Fouéré), the sole survivor of his infamous 1973 massacre who’s hell-bent on seeking revenge.
Hopefully, Netflix greenlights a sequel and gives this group some more to work with.
