Before being sent to serve in Vietnam, two brothers and their girlfriends take one last road trip, but when they get into an accident, a terrifying experience will take them to a secluded house of horrors, with a chainsaw-wielding killer.
Two siblings and three of their friends en route to visit their grandfather's grave in Texas end up falling victim to a family of cannibalistic psychopaths and must survive the terrors of Leatherface and his family.
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.
In August, 1939, a worker goes into labor while working in a slaughterhouse and dies after a complicated labor, though the deformed child survives. The possibly orphaned baby is dumped in a garbage container and found by a beggar later, who brings him home. Along the years, the mentally retarded and disturbed boy called Thomas is raised by the Hewitt family in spite of having psychological problems as well as suffering from an unnamed skin disorder, later working in a meat packing plant. In July, 1969, when the facility is closed, the inhabitants move to other places, but the deformed, mentally childlike Thomas flies into a rage after being insulted and kills the foreman. His deranged brother (considered his uncle due to their age difference) executes the sheriff that is going to arrest Thomas, and assumes his identity, wearing his clothes,driving his car though the roads in Texas and entitling himself as Sheriff Hoyt.

The DVD contains three alternate endings. 1. In this ending, Chrissie gets in the car after escaping from the meat factory and Leatherface is not in the back seat, but then Leatherface saws through the window with the chainsaw and he kills Chrissie. 2. This ending is the same as the theatrical ending, but Leatherface stabs Chrissie with a knife through her chest, instead of ramming the chainsaw through her stomach. 3. Also the same as the theatrical ending, but not with the voice over from John Larroquette, but with subtitles instead See more »

Sickest Movie Ever
Personally, I can't stand horror films sometimes, but I love to watch them at the same time. I know that's ironic, but a good scare is in need once in awhile.
Now if you like gore, suspense, and intensity then this is the movie for you! The acting was great and I loved finally seeing how the family came about with their sickness for killing people.
The gore is so bad that a few girls at different times ran out of the theater about to throw up, but that's how you know that is a good movie. So I would definitely say go see Texas Chainsaw, but BE PREPARED for what you are going in for once you sit down in that dark theater!!!
