The Texas Chainsaw Massacre

SPECIAL EVENTS Leatherface and his family celebrate the 50th anniversary of this gruesome classic! More info
Produced and directed by horror icon Tobe Hooper this genre classic celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2024!

En route to visit their grandfather's grave (which has apparently been ritualistically desecrated), five teenagers drive past a slaughterhouse, pick up (and quickly drop) a sinister hitch-hiker, eat some delicious home-cured meat at a roadside gas station, before ending up at the old family home... where they're plunged into a never-ending nightmare as they meet a family of cannibals who more than make up in power tools what they lack in social skills...
