The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a 1974 American slasher film directed by Tobe Hooper (Poltergeist – 1982, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre 2 1986, the Mangler – 1995, Life-force - 1985) and written and co-produced by Hooper and Kim Henkel.

Partain - Franklin Hardesty, (The Return of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre Hospital Orderly - 1994, Rolling Thunder - Brother-in-Law -1977), Edwin Neal- the hitchhiker, (Future Kill - Splatter – 1985, Zombiegeddon (TROMA) - God – 2003), Jim Siedow - the proprietor, (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre 2 - Drayton Sawyer - The Cook -1986), and Gunnar Hansen - Leatherface (Texas Chainsaw 3D - Boss Sawyer 2013, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers - The Stranger – 1988, Hellblock 13 - The Executioner – 1999).
Plot - Five teenagers vs a cannibalistic Texan family of chainsaw loving psychopathsWhen Sally (Marilyn Burns) hears that her grandfather's grave may have been vandalized, she and her paraplegic brother, Franklin (Paul A. Partain), set out with their friends to investigate. After a detour to their family's old farmhouse, they discover a group of crazed, murderous outcasts living next door. As the group is attacked one by one by the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen), who wears a mask of human skin, the survivors must do everything they can to escape. The film was marketed as being based on true events to attract a wider audience and to act as a subtle commentary on the era's political climate; although the character of Leatherface and minor story details were inspired by the crimes of murderer Ed Gein, its plot is largely fictional.
