“They’re also things when I watched this movie that I look back on and I wish I had done, so I’ve got those in my back pocket if I get to do another one. And of course, there’s that teaser at the end of the film, so there’s definitely a future to explore.”

He could relate to the movie to such an extent, that he started taking interest in the film world.
Garcia told The Hollywood Reporter, “My first encounter with the movie was on cable. I was probably 12/13 years old and as soon as Leatherface showed up I got really freaked out and turned the TV off. I didn’t know what I was watching.” Somehow he gathered the courage to switch on the TV and complete the movie. The movie surely made an impact on him!
