The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning (2006)

Born under the most gruesome of conditions, an abandoned baby is found and taken in by the demented Hewitt family. As he grows under their morbid nurturing, Thomas develops a ravenous appetite for chainsaws and torture. This is unfortunate for four teens captured by the shady local "sheriff" and brought to the Hewitts' sadistic house of horrors. There, the teenagers must fight to survive as Thomas' murderous desires are unleashed and Leatherface is born.


This movie is a prequel to The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003), taking place four years prior to the events in that film.

Chrissie: "I have a question for you. It involves the family tree, the lineage, if you will. It's like a system through a table... Do you guys fuck all your cousins, or just the ones you find attractive?"

Chrissie: "Why are you doing this?"
Sheriff Hoyt: "No talking until I've said grace, asshole."

Sheriff Hoyt [after killing the real sheriff]: "Holy shit, I just killed the whole fucking sheriff's department!"

Sheriff Hoyt: "People may not remember what we say here tonight, but by God, they'll remember what we did."
