Hold onto your limbs: Everyone's favorite chainsaw-wielding cannibal, Leatherface, will be returning to Halloween Horror Nights this year. 

Universal Orlando has announced that the first house of HHN 26 will be based around classic 1974 horror film The Texas Chain Saw Massacre



"As creators of Halloween Horror Nights, we have the privilege of bringing to life many popular horror films," Michael Aiello, director of creative development for entertainment, writes on Universal Orlando's blog. "Now and then, we are able to replicate one that forged the reason horror has become such a factor in many of our lives. The original Texas Chain Saw Massacre is undoubtedly on that short list."

The HHN website says that fans will be able to "experience every scene, every kill, every bone-chilling rev of the chainsaw from the original masterpiece." 



Leatherface first hunted for victims in Orlando back in 2007, when HHN 17 featured a house called "The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: Flesh Wounds."

HHN 26 will run select nights at Universal Orlando between Sept. 16 and Oct. 31. Individual tickets aren't for sale yet, but Universal is currently offering a hotel and ticket combo package.
