Two siblings and three of their friends en route to visit their grandfather's grave in Texas end up falling victim to a family of cannibalistic psychopaths And must survive the terrors of leatherface and his family.
In August, 1939, a worker goes into labor while working in a slaughterhouse and dies after a complicated labor, though the deformed child survives. The possibly orphaned baby is dumped in a garbage container and found by a beggar later, who brings him home. Along the years, the mentally retarded and disturbed boy called Thomas is raised by the Hewitt family in spite of having psychological problems as well as suffering from an unnamed skin disorder, later working in a meat packing plant. In July, 1969, when the facility is closed, the inhabitants move to other places, but the deformed, mentally childlike Thomas flies into a rage after being insulted and kills the foreman. His deranged brother (considered his uncle due to their age difference) executes the sheriff that is going to arrest Thomas, and assumes his identity, wearing his clothes,driving his car though the roads in Texas and entitling himself as Sheriff Hoyt.

When Eric gets his face wrapped in cellophane by Sheriff Hoyt that's actually real, Matt Bomer's head was actually being wrapped in Saran Wrap, R. Lee Ermey said he was very concerned for him. They left a small gap opening at the bottom of Matt's chin for him to breathe but that didn't help much, so when ever he was having trouble breathing he would indicate by knocking his knees together See more »
During Eric's plastic-wrap suffocation, his hands go from being tied at the ends of the crossbar to together and back again, as evidenced by his arms spread wide or close to his ears. See more »

The DVD contains three alternate endings. 1. In this ending, Chrissie gets in the car after escaping from the meat factory and Leatherface is not in the back seat, but then Leatherface saws through the window with the chainsaw and he kills Chrissie. 2. This ending is the same as the theatrical ending, but Leatherface stabs Chrissie with a knife through her chest, instead of ramming the chainsaw through her stomach. 3. Also the same as the theatrical ending, but not with the voice over from John Larroquette, but with subtitles instead See more »
the movie could be a great -and bloody- piece of splatter-history... but -alas!!- it's cut to ugly pieces in German and austrian cinemas! just because of this extremely idiotic censorship the whole film has logical mistakes and scenes that don't fit to the following scenes! when is this dumb pseudo-morally cutting going to stop? my gracious lord of bioscopes, the whole movie is rated for adults over 18!!!! why has it to be cut and dismembered???? this is an attack on democracy, free will and art! it is medieval ethics. everyone should boycot films that are cut for "morally" issues! all in all, "texas chainsaw massacre-the beginning" is a remarkable film, worth every second of viewing.
