In the summer of 1973, four teenagers - Erin, Morgan, Kemper, and Andy - are driving through Texas on a road trip when they pick up a hitchhiker who is on her way to Mexico to score some dope. But when they pass through a small town, they see a bloody and distraught girl wandering by the roadside. After stopping to help her, they realize she's been involved in something horribly traumatic. As they piece together the story, the 5 teens are drawn into the web of a murderous family of subnormal cannibals.

A horrifying remake that captured the atmospheric terror of the original, but (as per expected with remakes) not as good as the classic seventies original.

This movie was entertaining and interesting but not one of my favorite for this year. Not too bad---good performance. I fast forwarded a lot but not all the way.

I may have liked this movie more if it WASN'T a remake of a horror classic. As it stands, I didn't care for it much. It had a few scenes of grisly violence. Jessica Biel looked amazing (I am not a fan, but she looked great in this) and played scared pretty well. The rest of the young actors did an ok job of being scared and running about. Lacks nearly all of the original film's creepiness. More or less just a slasher movie that doesn't have any scares. Not a waste of time if you love the genre, but totally forgettable.

Although this is not the original version i did like this movie. The sound was good and the characters were funny, sad, and a little scary. One of my favorite scenes was when the main characters picked up this woman and moments later while in the car she blew her brains out. What i like was the angle the camera took as it pulls away from the bullet wound and continues through the hole in the back windshield. Very nice. I also like Jessica Beal. But the whole cast was pretty good for this horror movie. Leather face and his family was ok. I didn't find it scary but it was fun. The version i have is DTS 6.1 and should be played on your HOMETHEATER. This movie has plenty of all around sound that brings life to this ok movie. I give this movie 3 and half stars. Decent cast, desent story, and an ok crazy family. I did like the ending. A thick juicy burger with chips and a coke.

Too gruesome, extremely sadistic, incredibly VIOLENT & horrifying to be true, though the film is based a true story & single crime scene of "murderous family of subnormal cannibals".

FORTY YEARS LATER, One wonders why is the case still cold, when there's ONLY ONE crime scene & one family living in the crime scene?

Beside the ever-missing "Leather-face", could the "Authorities" have been involved in committing or cover up the massacre?
