The Texas Chain Saw Massacre is a 1974 American independent horror film directed by Tobe Hooper and written collaboratively by Hooper and Kim Henkel. The film stars Marilyn Burns, Gunnar Hansen, Teri McMinn, William Vail, Edwin Neal and Paul A. Partain. While presented as a true story involving the ambush and murder of a group of friends on a road trip in rural Texas by a family of cannibals, the film is completely fictional. The Texas Chain Saw Massacre started the six films of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre film franchise revolving around the character of Leatherface, portrayed by Hansen in this film.
This is the original Texas Chainsaw Massacre film and it revolves primarily around a group of friends on a road trip in rural Texas. The purpose of the road trip is to visit the hometown of Sally and Franklin's father in order to check on their grandfather's grave after reports of grave robbing. After their van runs low on gas, the group of friends visits the childhood home of Sally and Franklin's father where they are attacked by a family of cannibalistic men, including the chainsaw-wielding Leatherface.

Leatherface is a fictional character in The Texas Chainsaw Massacre horror-film series. One of the first slasher-film villains, he has appeared in all six of the series' films since the release of the original, in 1974. The character wears masks made of human skin and engages in murder and cannibalism.
In the series, he often uses a chainsaw and sledgehammer to slaughter his victims. He lives with a poor Southern family of fellow cannibals and serial-killers, who often behave abusively and violently towards him. The character is inspired by Wisconsin serial killer Ed Gein who, like Leatherface, wore a mask of skin.
In the original film, Leatherface wore three different masks; the "Killing Mask", "Grandmother Mask" and "Pretty Woman Mask". Gunnar Hansen commented: "the reason he wore a mask, according to Tobe and Kim, was that the mask really determined his personality. Who he wanted to be that day determined what mask he put on. So, when the Cook comes home, with Sally, Leatherface is wearing the 'Grandmother Mask' and he's wearing an apron and carrying a wooden spoon – he wants to be domestic, helpful in the kitchen. At dinner he wears a different face - the 'Pretty Woman,' which has make up."
