Plot Summary

Driving through the backwoods of Texas, five youths pick up a traumatized hitchhiker, who shoots herself in their van. Shaken by the suicide, the group seeks help from the locals, but their situation becomes even more surreal when they knock on the door of a remote homestead. It's quickly apparent the residents are a family of inbred psychopaths, and the unlucky youths suddenly find themselves running for their lives. In hot pursuit is a disfigured, chainsaw-wielding cannibal known as Leatherface. Written by Love Hewitt

Trivia There's a homage to The Texas Chain Saw Massacre (1974) regarding each film's leading ladies Erin (2003) and Sally (original). In the remake, Erin pulls out a knife to unpick a lock. When asked where she got it from, she replies "from my brother." In the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Sally's brother Franklin is obsessed with his knife, and at one point in the film gives it to Sally. She never returns it. See more »
Goofs The young group is listening to "Sweet Home Alabama" by Lynyrd Skynyrd in the van at the beginning of the film. The film takes place between 18 and 20 August 1973. The song was not released until 1974, featured on the band's album, "Second Helping". See more »
