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