Five friends head out to rural Texas to visit the grave of a grandfather. On the way they stumble across what appears to be a deserted house, only to discover something sinister within. Something armed with a chainsaw.
A group of friends fall victim to a family of cannibals led by a chainsaw-wielding serial killer known as Leatherface. This was the original in the Texas Chainsaw franchise, and directed by Tobe Hooper.
Plot details were inspired by real-life murderer Ed Gein. The move made more than $30 million at the box office on a budget of $300,000. The majority of the cast were unknowns.
