A group of teenagers get into a car crash in the Texas woods on prom night, and then wander into an old farmhouse that is home to Leatherface (Robert Jacks) and his insane family of cannibalistic psychopaths.
This is the twisted tale of Vilmer (Matthew McConaughey) and his crazy family which includes the lovely Leatherface (Robert Jacks). They have pastime of killing and stuffing people. Unfortunately, Jenny (Renée Zellweger) and her friends run into Vilmer and his clan in the middle of the night in the middle of the woods.Written by

Another element noted by critics and movie scholars is this movie's overt references to cross-dressing in the Leatherface character, which was briefly explored in The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974), but implemented to a greater extent. Robert Wilonsky of the Houston Press commented on this movie's treatment of the character, writing that this movie "turns Leatherface (Robert Jacks) into a cross-dressing nancy boy who screams more than he saws." According to Robert Jacks, he wrote the character as one who assumes the persona of the person whose face he wears: "The confused sexuality of the Leatherface character is complex and horrifying at the same time", he said in a 1996 interview. Movie scholar Scott Von Doviak also took note of this, likening Leatherface's presentation in this movie to that of a "tortured drag Queen." See more »

Then, over the next several years at least two minor, yet apparently related incidents, were reported. Then again nothing. For five long years silence...
