On August 20th 1973, police were dispatched to the remote farmhouse of Thomas Hewitt, a former worker at a local slaughterhouse in Travis County, Texas. What they found within the confines of his cryptic residence was the butchered remains of 33 victims, a chilling discovery that shocked and horrified a nation in what many still call the most gruesome mass murder case of all time. Brandishing a chainsaw and wearing the grotesque flesh masks of his victims, the killer became forever known as ‘Leatherface’ when sensational headlines were splashed across newspapers throughout the state of Texas. Police and FBI eventually gunned down a man wearing a leathery mask and declared they had their killer and abruptly closed the case. However, in the years that followed, many close to the grisly murder case would come forward to level accusations that police had botched the investigation and knowingly killed the wrong man. Now, for the first time, the only known survivor of the killing spree has broken the silence and come forward to tell the real story of what happened on that deserted rural Texas highway when a group of five young people (Biel, Leerhsen, Balfour, Tucker and Vogel) inadvertently found themselves besieged by a chainsaw wielding madman who would leave a trail of blood and terror that would forever be known as The Texas Chainsaw Massacre.

  • 1 star "Many of the comments here are laughable. People actually thought this trash was scary?!? I've seen scarier episodes Scooby-Doo. This movie is total garbage. Watch Tobe Hooper's original masterpiece instead."
  • 1 star "Total garbage. An insult to Tobe Hooper's original and its fans. No scares, suspense, or logic. It was already terrible enough without the casting of the reprehensible Jessica Biel."
  • 4 stars "Wow, this was amazing!"
