In case you missed it on the Morning Show today- we talked about the sequel to "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre" and news that would delight any fan of the original: John Larroquette WILL return to narrate the sequel.

John Larroquette was the narrator of the original 1974 film and fans were very happy to hear that his voice would once again narrate the opening of the sequel. In case you need a little refresher- here is what it sounded like in 1974:

Director David Blue Garcia spoke to Variety of the importance of bringing Larroquette back:

It felt important to honor the original ‘TCM’ at every opportunity. John’s voice is iconic in the original opening and we thought it would help set the perfect tone in our own intro. It’s also a subtle way of letting the fans know they’re in good hands.

"Texas Chainsaw Massacre" debuts on Netflix on February 18, and is a direct sequel to the 1974 original- forgoing any other instalments in the franchise- and follows Melody, her teenage sister Lila, and their friends Dante and Ruth head to the remote town of Harlow, Texas, for business. However, things turn into a nightmare when they accidentally disrupt the home of Leatherface, along the way we catch up with Sally Hardesty and her quest for vengeance 50 years in the making!

"The Texas Chain Saw Massacre" is a beloved horror classic, and especially to those who live in Texas- judging by the hate mail I got when we did a Mount Rushmore of Horror Franchises back in 2019!

By the way- the gas station used in the film was opening as a restaurant with cabins available for lodging. The gas station, appropriately named The Gas Station, is located in Bastrop, TX. It has four rustic cabins with all the amenities with a full on BBQ restaurant and gift shop. All combined, it's sure to satisfy your craving for horror and BBQ.
