Family is very important for everyone. Where would you be without a supporting family that only wants the best for you? Sadly, you do not always get to spend enough time with your family and only the large occasions are reason to go and visit. If you are lucky enough to have your family nearby however, you are able to gain their support whenever it is needed.
Sally and Franklin are taking a road trip with a group of friends to their recently deceased grandfather’s home. As they are almost next in line to inherit the estate, they will check out the property, along with having some fun with their friends. The trip is long, and since Franklin is stuck in a wheelchair, there is little to do on the drive, other than have good conversations with the group, that is until they pick up a hitchhiker.
Even though the young man seems a little bit out of the ordinary, the group feels comfortable with him in the van, that is until he takes Franklin’s knife and slices his hand open. Trying to amuse the group the hitchhiker tells them stories and even takes a picture, but when the group refuses to give him a ride home, he loses it and his true crazy comes out. Kicking the young man out of the van, the group notices that they need to fill up the tank before making it up to the abandoned house, but getting the news that the gas pumps were currently dry, they have to continue their trip without.
Arriving at the house, the group all decide to explore on their own, but Franklin was not given that option while being stuck in his wheelchair. As a couple go down an old path to try to find the local pond and go for a swim, they notice another house on the horizon that is running a generator and knowing their need for gasoline, they stop by to ask for some. When they are not able to get a response by knocking on the door, they go inside and find something incredibly savage. One by one the group is taken into the depths of the old house by a masked man who has only the most treacherous intentions and the hitchhiker they so graciously helped out, is here to repay them in terror.
The Texas Chain Saw Massacre follows a group of friends that are looking to have a good time in a newly acquired house away from their homes. When there seems to be nothing to do to stay entertained, they head down a little path to find a place to swim, but come across another house instead. Entering the home uninvited, the group is picked off one by one and disposed of by a masked man who enjoys wielding a chainsaw. As the group spreads out, the hunt starts and none of the group is safe, even in the confines of their own home. As Sally was able to escape the initial attack, she is given a seat at the table of horror as she gets to witness something out of her worst nightmares.
Not a movie for anyone that is light of heart as you get to see the inner workings of a family that is looking for one thing only, blood. As you walk around their home, you can see that they are much more gruesome than anyone would have ever expected. With furniture made out of human bones and a meat locker set up for killing, it is easy to forget that the group living there is a family and only looking to survive in their own way. The poor people that become their victims are just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Stay Scared.
