A tale far too horrific to be real – a van full of friends, a dusty back road in Texas, the thud of a mallet, the buzz of a chainsaw, muted screams and the tearing of flesh…Considered by many as the bloody benchmark of horror movies. Inspired by the real-life story of murderer Ed Gein, it follows five young students who unwittingly meet up with a sinister hitchhiker (Edwin Neal) and stumble across a house of horrors where mask-wearing maniac Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) rules with a wooden mallet and the ultimate weapon of torture – a whirring chainsaw.
