For more than three decades, the legend of
The Texas Chainsaw Massacre has remained one of the most
terrifying and lingering stories ever brought to the big screen.
Ever since the original film debuted in 1974, fans have debated
the origins of the story Ė but now New Line Cinema, in
association with Michael Bay, presents the story of how it all
began in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning. The film is
produced by A Platinum Dunes / Next Entertainment Production,
and A Vortex/Henkel/Hooper Production.
The producers behind the successful 2003 remake of The Texas
Chainsaw Massacre return to deliver this startling prequel,
which details the beginnings of the Hewitt clan and exposes
their psychotic idea of family fun. For the first time,
audiences will learn what led to the origin of Leatherface,
perhaps the most iconic horror character of all time.
Itís 1969. The conflict in Vietnam has exploded. The toll on
the United States is catastrophic, the losses immeasurable,
while the draft ramps up to feed the military machine. And
18-year-old Dean Hillís (Taylor Handley) number is up. But
before Dean can report to the local induction center, his
brother, Eric (Matt Bomer), who has recently returned from a
tour of duty in Vietnam, decides to surprise Dean. Despite the
concerns of his devoted fiancťe, Chrissie (Jordana Brewster),
Eric plans to re-enlist alongside Dean in his beloved Marine
Corps in hopes of keeping an eye on his directionless brother.
Unfortunately, Deanís plans do not coincide with Ericís.
Deanís simple strategy to dodge the draft and head south to
Mexico is sponsored by his strong-willed girlfriend, Bailey (Diora
Baird). But before either couple realizes the true battle they
are about to confront, the boys and their respective girlfriends
head across Texas for a final fling of serious fun.
Soon after their journey begins, the spirited foursome is
spooked by a menacing pair of bikers, Holden (Lee Tergesen) and
his girlfriend, Alex (Cyia Batten). When Alex chases the
groupís jeep, propelling them into a serious accident,
Chrissie is thrown from the vehicle. As Alex attempts to rob the
injured trio, Sheriff Hoyt (R. Lee Ermey) arrives on the scene
and turns the tables on their would-be assassin. While Chrissie
hides in the nearby brush, she watches as the sheriff
inexplicably taunts her friends before ordering them into the
back of the patrol car. Unbeknownst to Chrissie, Hoyt is headed
back to the Hewitt family home, where his nephew, Thomas Ė who
is being groomed to become the terrifying monster known as
Leatherface (Andrew Bryniarski) Ė and the rest of the Hewitt
clan await. As Chrissie witnesses the horrors inflicted by the
Hewitt family upon the people she loves, she realizes she is
their only hope of survival.
New Line Cinema, in association with Michael Bay, presents The
Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning, the terrifying story of
a family left behind in a fading rural town, with no hope, no
prospects and nothing left to lose, whose eccentric behavior
crosses the line into gruesome, sadistic ritual. The film stars
Jordana Brewster, Taylor Handley, Diora Baird, Matt Bomer, Lee
Tergesen, Cyia Batten and R. Lee Ermey.
R. Lee Ermey, Andrew Bryniarski, Marietta Marich, Terrence Evans
and Kathy Lamkin return to reprise their roles from the 2003
