The only thing more shocking than how it ended is how it all began!
For more than 30 years, cinema’s most depraved maniac Leatherface, along with his sadistic family, have been terrorizing audiences worldwide. See how it all began with a haunting journey into the gruesome childhood of Thomas Hewitt and his transformation into Leatherface as the hit prequel The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning arrives on DVD on January 16th.
To celebrate the birth of a legend, M&C is teaming with New Line Home Video to giveaway five Texas Chainsaw Massacre Prize packs! The prize packs include a copy of the new DVD (unrated version); A Texas Chainsaw Massacre T-shirt; and a Texas Chainsaw Massacre key chain.
It is 1969 - the height of the Vietnam War. Two young men are spending a last weekend with their girlfriends before being shipped overseas to the war. At the same time, the only major business - a meat-packing plant - goes out of business. One of the men who works in the plant is Thomas Hewitt - a deformed, demented psychopath who will become known as Leatherface - and when he finds out what is happening he savagely murders the foreman of the plant.
The two young men and their girlfriends are headed down a lonely highway when they are involved in an accident that cripples their vehicle. Soon they encounter the sheriff - who is not really the sheriff but the psychopathic uncle of Leatherface - and he kidnaps 3 of them to take them to his home for the developing monster Leatherface to "refine" his murderous abilities.
The one girl who escaped unnoticed attempts to rescue them with the help of a biker whose girlfriend was killed by the sheriff, and what follows is a night of sheer terror at the hands of a family of cannibalistic, inbred psychopaths....
