A family of homicidal cannibals terrorize five unsuspecting young people who make a detour into hell in Tobe Hooper's independent film oddity slash grisly cult fave.

Leatherface's human slaughterhouse is right out of Hooper's worst nightmare and still as disturbingly hard to watch today as it was in the mid-1970s.

 Armageddon director Michael Bay is developing a remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. "The director of the original film, Tobe Hooper, is writing a draft with his original co-writer, Kim Henkel, but no final decision has been made on the writer or director of the remake." (Variety, 1/02)
