SPOILERS FOR ‘THE TEXAS MASSACRE’ FOLLOW

Sally dies, taking Leatherface with her, and the sisters program their Tesla to return home, but… Never leave Leatherface for dead.
Leatherface suddenly appears, makes Melody get out of the car and he rips his head off with the chainsaw. Lila drives away crying in the car as she sees how the murderer, the true protagonist of ‘The Texas Chainsaw Massacre’, displays his sister’s head as a trophy and remains a proud defender of his people.
The actress sarah yankin, who plays Melody, has given details about the final scene of the film in statements to Cinema Blend. “I think my death is the best part of the movie. Of course, I was disappointed when I read the script and found out about my fate. But I think it’s a much better movie with my death, because it’s shocking. I mean, it happens in the last 10 seconds of the movie. It was shocking to me, and I knew I was dying when I was watching it. So no, I don’t want to live. Love it.”
Melody’s decapitated head is one of the most memorable images of a film full of gore and bloody effectsand Yankin also shared anecdotes of his “double”: “I got to see a version of my severed head, that was terrifying. One of the first things we did when I arrived in Bulgaria was that they made me a full body and face mask to recreate my head. And people loved taking pictures of the doll’s head, although I don’t think I looked like it, but everyone really thought so: the hair looks like mine. AND I joked about taking my head with me in my suitcase, but I don’t think it would have snuck in..”
post credits scene
One of the disappointments of this “recuela” has been not to return to the sawyer house, the home of Leatherface and his family, the place where it all began and the main location of the series. But in a brief post-credits scene, Leatherface DOES come home. It is very short and simply shows us the image of Leather face, chainsaw in hand, returning home after a long, hard day’s work.
Given the success that the film seems to be having at its premiere, it is not unreasonable to think that Netflix and Legendary Pictures are already planning a sequel, with Fede Álvarez repeating as producer.
